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!
(hello Covid passion project)
Most recently we created an online course, CREATIVE VENDING REVOLUTION!
