Cully Community Market is proud to present the first Make it Your Market scholarship award to Maria of Nena’s Creations. Maria has been with the Cully Community Market since the very beginning, selling delicious tamales and beautifully crafted jewelry- and always with a smile. She is a new business owner who leveraged her cooking skills into a recipe for success and community partnerships. Cully Community Market recognizes Maria’s dedication and is very pleased to promote a blooming entrepreneur right from our neighborhood. The $300 scholarship was generously provided by Green America, a non-profit organization that promotes environmentally and socially responsible businesses. Maria will use the scholarship to pay for her Multnomah County temporary restaurant license and required insurance premiums to sell at the market. When presented with the award Maria she was excited to be part of the market and is hoping to watch it grow.
. Next time you’re at the market, please stop by for tamales and congratulate our wonderful winner.
