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 & growing. We believe vending machines should not be boring!
Most recently (hello Covid passion project) we created an online course, CREATIVE VENDING REVOLUTION! Check it out!
