Project Description

Construction of a 38,740 sq. ft. Food Market Hall dedicated to local food and entrepreneurial food vendors. A part of a larger Rockwood Town Center development, the project will include an incubator with vendor spaces for food businesses of varying sizes, commercial and commissary kitchens and commercial office spaces.

  • In consultation with local community members since 2014, the Gresham Redevelopment Commission designed the multi-phase revitalization project to empower residents to build prosperity for themselves and their families.
  • Project is located in one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in the area. The community has a poverty rate of 42.4% and has seen six (6) national grocery chains exit the area in the past 20 years, leaving nearly 20,000 residents without a commercial center to shop for groceries.

U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon expressed his appreciation for the project and its ability to bring “education, workforce development, and entrepreneurship programs together in one location” and offering a “pathway for community members to find jobs, start businesses, and increase family income.”
