We mentioned before that the Urban Air Market is paying us a visit, so get ready for the first ever installment in Portland. The San Fransisco based event is bringing in their guns to host an amazing array of both emerging and established designers from Portland alongside a few SF vendors. The focus is on sustainable design, as in locally manufactured, handmade by the designers themselves, or at least made in the US. Not only will there be a bounty of local creative talent, but you can chill at the beer garden and sip a few, listen to live music throughout the day(s), admire some art installations by Ivan McLean and Blake Hudson and eat satisfying food. We got our hands on the list of vendors (so far, they're still adding people) and it's certainly a righteous group.

Urban Air Market-Portland
2 Day Event: Saturday, August 2nd and Sunday, August 3rd
11 am-6 pm at Zidell Yards in South Waterfront


If it so happens that you would like to be a part of this event, they are still looking to fill some volunteer spaces, and there are perks: 21+ volunteers will get a PDX staff tote bag, an Urban Air Market T-shirt, and a drink ticket for the beer garden in exchange for a couple of hours of on-site help. More info here. If you just want to go and shop and get to know the vendors a little better, you can RSVP here. The first 150 people to RSVP will receive a good sized free tote bag that can be picked up at the info. booth upon arrival.
