"The Other Plant Sale"

     Thank you for your interest in visiting or becoming a vendor at "The Other Plant Sale"!
As mentioned, this is going to be our first time hosting something like this, but we've done many popups and sales before so this sort of thing isn't too new to us. We are looking for 30-40 vendors to sell plant and plant-related products, art & craft. This is a sale event for beginners-to-experts who are interested in plants! We are not focused on any specific grouping of plants, we want to see them all! This will be FREE entry for all. Please dress weather-appropriate. Since it is still early Spring, our weather can still be unpredictable. Come purchase plants, make friends, eat food, enjoy yourself!


Quick location background: The idea behind this event is to welcome people back to Gresham/Rockwood! This is an amazing neighborhood but, unfortunately, due to decades of rumors and misinformation this neighborhood became one of the least visited in the Portland Metro area. The City of Gresham has built this complex to revitalize the area and we are already seeing people making their way from miles away just to visit! The Downtown Rockwood complex itself is a very fascinating place with lots of diverse micro and standard restaurants, shops, a playground with a splash pad and home to future residents
(108? 109? units) with plans for more small shops and restaurants, and grocers moving in!

"The Other Plant Sale" 
When: We are looking at April 22nd 10am-5pm, not 100% locked in yet but it will be in April- strategically apart from Hortlandia and Canby's Spring Fair. This will be a 1-day event because there isn't a good way to secure merchandise over night.
Cost: This will be free entry (no need to pay for booth or entry) for vendors and guests.

Visitor Info: The address to this is 458 SE 185th Ave. Portland, OR 97233. The address is still a little off on many GPS but the complex occupies the space between SE Stark and E Burnside, on SE 185th and SE 187th. Parking can be found all around the complex but there is a parking lot which can fill up relatively fast since there will most-likely still be construction in the area. In the future there should be a lot more parking after the completion of the apartment building but there is also plenty of street parking.

Public transportation, we are right next to the Rockwood/E 188th MAX station if you are using the MAX along with other various bus lines that runs down SE Stark and E Burnside.

We also have bike lockup areas dotted around the complex.
Vendor Info: We are ambitiously looking for 30-40 vendors. Though having a booth will be free, we are requesting an item donation (of any value) for our raffle booth.
There is really no way of telling how the crowd will be especially since this will be our first run BUT the more vendors participate the bigger the crowd will be! The best way to help is to post on your social media and help spread the word!

  • As of 10/17/2022 there are 8 restaurants, we are expecting 2 more to open by the end of this year, so food and restroom shouldn't be an issue.

  • You are in charge of your own payment! You must have cash for change, and mobile credit card readers are HIGHLY encouraged. Many purchases will be done through cards.

  • You are in charge of loading and unloading. We are not going to be staffed to help loading and unloading, you might find a nice vendor to help but most people will be occupied with their own setup.

  • We do not have shopping bags or boxes to hand out to guests.

  • Vendor Parking: We will be asking the pawn shop with a big lot if we can use their lot. Technically it belongs to the property management group so technically you can park there, we just want to be polite and ask as soon as we can lock the event date down. Other than that there is a lot of street parking and a parking lot but we want to reserve that for guests. We are not in charge of traffic ticket if you park where you're not supposed to. To get an idea of the current parking map please check out the "Visit Us" page. A much-larger lot is getting built late 2023, for future events.

  • What sort of things can you sell? Anything in the LEGAL realm of plant and plant-related products. We are not going to "police" what you are selling unless it is prohibited, or extremely inappropriate... though tasteful art is welcomed...please keep in mind that this is an event for ALL AGES. Thank you for understanding!  You don't have to propagate your own plants or craft your own material, this event is for everyone and we understand that not everyone has the ability or space for propagation but please don't go to a hardware store the night before and monopolize on their restock...

    • No food or drinks for sale please, we won't be permitted for that, plus there is plenty to eat here.

    • No live animals, no taxidermy.

    • No weapons. Things that look like weapons are okay as long as it is not a functional weapon.

    • LEGAL PLANTS ONLY. Please stick to OREGON's agricultural laws.

    • No ready-to-use consumables. You can sell edible plants but please do not prepare anything for people to consume.

  • Booth Space: Everyone will get at least a 10x10 space with a little bit of a wiggle room each side. If you need larger please let us know. This shouldn't be an overwhelmingly tight event and we know that some people might bring larger shrubs. Tents are not required but it is advisable to bring a tent, it's still April and the weather can be unpredictable. We do not have loaner tents and this is an outdoor event. If you have a tent you MUST have weights in order to prevent tents flying away.

    • Bring your own tables and chairs

    • There is no access to electricity other than in the Rockwood Markethall- but this will not be accessible from your booth.

    • There is no public WiFi available.

  • This is a shared space with the community, please clean up after yourself. We understand that soil will be spilled here and there, we can clean that up, but please pick up any trash and dispose of it properly.

We are not responsible for theft, bodily injury including death, damage to property or any issue may occur.
