Built Oregon Launches Online Marketplace To Showcase Oregon’s Small Businesses

Built Oregon has developed an online multi-vendor marketplace to support Oregon consumer-good companies and celebrate Oregon’s entrepreneur culture. It is a direct-to-costumer marketplace in which shoppers will be able to discover and shop Oregon products by region, category, and featured collections – including seller’s own dedicated shop. Customers purchases are shipped directly from the sellers or picked up at their store front.

“The Built Oregon Marketplace is a celebration of Oregon made products and the places these products call home, how the regions shape these products, and, most importantly, the people and communities behind them. The importance of the marketplace cannot come at a more critical time.”
—Mitch Daugherty, Built Oregon Cofounder and Executive Director

The Built Oregon Marketplace opened on October 15th to feature products from the state’s seven regions, elevating storytelling and products from Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), Women, LGBTQIA+, and Rural Founders. It is free for local consumer-based businesses to join. Businesses are invited to join by early November in order to participate in the Built Together Shopping Days, an integrated holiday shopping campaign on November 19th – 22nd.
