Located at 831 SE Salmon St., The Redd on Salmon Street, a project by Ecotrust, continues in its effort to serve "mid-size rural farmers, ranchers, and fishers who have outgrown direct-to-consumer channels," and it is extending an invitation to check out its food center this Sunday, December 20, for a pop-up holiday market. Carman Ranch, the renowned cattle ranch in Wallowa, Oregon, is heading the free event, and along with its meats, there will be products for sale by Iliamna Fish Company, Starvation Alley Farms, and neighboring businesses Alma Chocolate and Ancient Heritage Dairy. The market will run 1 to 4 p.m.
The Redd on Salmon Street has 20,000 square feet of rentable space divided between two buildings: The Marble and The Foundary. Sunday's event will be held in The Marble, which is the first space The Redd is developing. According to The Redd, The Marble will likely be home to a retail or restaurant space and multiple warehouses for connecting local agriculture with Portlanders. So far, Carmen Ranch, Organically Grown Company, Flying Fish Company, and Iliamna Fish Co. have announced that they will make deliveries to The Redd. If all goes as planned, The Redd on Salmon Street could resolve some of the challenges surrounding community-support agriculture (CSA).
