Market of Choice is excited to announce an ongoing partnership with Built Oregon and Xcelerate Women. Together, we provide full-circle, ongoing business support, education, funding and shelf space to BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and Women food and beverage producers in Oregon.

Built Oregon is a passionate group of community and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, storytellers, investors, mentors and organizers. Built believes that the support and growth of Oregon’s consumer product industries will create sustainable, inclusive and innovative job growth.

Xcelerate Women offers a uniquely powerful combination of business education, peer support and a pathway to financing. It also provides an inclusionary space for women entrepreneurs to transform boardrooms, executive suites, investor meetings and banks to be diverse and equitable.

Market of Choice works to advance local food and beverage makers. We give guidance, development support, targeted funding, distribution solutions and amplification at the store-level. We commit to carrying these local makers’ products in our stores for a minimum of one year. By carrying these local products, our customers can taste and explore a wide range of new items and support Oregon entrepreneurs.

In addition to including local makers and local products in our Savories and Weekly ads, we bring more attention to their products through video stories and local maker in-store promotions.

We are honored and excited to join forces with these exceptional organizations to elevate Oregon makers!
