Who We Are

Midway is supported by the Midway Business Association, a collection of business owners who volunteer their time to strengthen the identity and economy of our district.

You may be in outer SE Portland, but you’ve got access to the entire culinary world. As one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in Portland, our restaurants (and residents and business owners) hail from all corners of Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America.

Visit Midway to see why it’s the place to shop, explore, work and live.

The Midway Business Association supports district businesses and members through monthly business-oriented talks, networking events and marketing through our website, newsletter and coupon book.

Where is Midway

Head east off I-205 at Division or Powell and you’re in Midway – the largest neighborhood business district in Portland. Here, 500+ business owners and their teams will roll up their sleeves and greet you with a smile and a solution.

Midway covers 12 square miles of neighborhoods and includes more than 500 businesses. Midway is bounded by I-205 and Gresham, Market and Foster.

Stretching from I-205 to the Gresham border and Market St. south to Foster, Midway is home to over 35,000 people. Named for its central location “mid-way” between many of the region’s amenities, we boast easy access to downtown Portland, the Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood and much more.
