To kick off the season, Thursday’s first market will feature face painting by Mystiques Fancy Faces, art from Wendy Gehring and Nancy Romero, a salad dressing demonstration by Kitchen Commons and live music by Andre Billingsly and Mainstreet.

Prepared Food Vendors will also be on site providing cuisine from Ethiopia and Mexico. Enjoy injera with lentils or tamales, aqua fresca and churros while you shop for produce and support your community.

See you on Thursdays!

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month

Robin Miller, a Case Manager in our Washington Program, was 21 years old when she was sexually exploited. “In 1993, I was trafficked from a club in Portland up and down the West Coast and in six states.” It took me six years to finally get the courage to leave my trafficker in 1999, but healing from the abuse took more than a decade more, in part, because there was no coordinated system of care available to support survivors,” she said. Robin gave this testimony before the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners last year. Once again, the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners adopted a proclamation on January 17, 2019 recognizing January as Human Trafficking Awareness Month in Multnomah County.
