The Venderia started in 2013 when Taylor Valdés placed her first vending machine at Beulahland.  Glittery
blue & pin striped in silver, filled 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.  We consult and curate vending machines for events, businesses, & nonprofit organizations around the world.  And we mentor & wholesale products to creative vending machine operators nationwide. 
The Venderia is  female-owned, feminist-owned, Latina-owned & true labor of love.  We believe vending machines should not be boring!
 
 
Most recently  (hello Covid passion project) we've expanded into 
PIÑATAS!  You can visit our piñatería inside Cargo Inc., where we also
retail larger works by some of our favorite Venderia artists.  Check it out!
