The Venderia started in 2013 when Taylor Valdés placed her first vending machine at Beulahland. Glittery blue & pin striped in silver, packed with secondhand novels, drawings by friends, mystery bags and pregnancy tests, the machine was an instant hit!
Now, our 20 machines in Portland & beyond retail the works of over 100 local artists and counting. We consult and curate vending machines for businesses, nonprofit organizations & events around the world. We also mentor new creative vending machine operators & wholesale products nationwide.
The Venderia is female-owned, feminist-owned, Latina-owned & growing. We believe vending machines should not be boring. We want to bring your wildest vending machine dreams to life!
