The Williams District is lined with one-of-a-kind shops that offer something for every age, interest, budget and style. Our corridor has been called “the best place in Portland to buy a gift” because of the broad mix of hand-crafted, local and repurposed items.
The Williams District was originally founded as a place where people could work. Whether they were creating products or providing services, those businesses paved the way for future generations to carry on the tradition. Today, the corridor brims with agencies, nonprofits and small businesses that provide vital services to the people of Portland and beyond.
