Port Orchard Public Market

Welcome to your new Port Orchard Public Market

I

t has taken two years of hard work on our part and lots of patience on your part, but we are now ready to meet your needs. A special thank you to all of our supporters, contributors and volunteers. We could not have done it without you. Many of our Port Orchard “Marketeers” contributed time and effort throughout the entire process and shared in the hopes and setbacks of the project. We honor them as the very foundation upon which this market is built. We are very grateful to the our investors too. Mansour Samadpour, and Abraham and Dalia Alfi of Abadan LLC invested in our community with the purchase and remodel of the building at 715 Bay St. The Port Orchard Public Market was designed by Architect Robert Kleven and executed by Pristine Homes, LLC. Last, but not least, thanks to Don Ryan for the vision and drive to make the market a reality. From the beginning, this was a vision for the prosperity and enjoyment of Port Orchard, the surrounding communities and hopefully even visitors from far away. Our aim is to be a local food hub and community gathering place for people to enjoy delicious food, music and art. Come visit us often and watch us grow. Pick up healthy local menu items while you are here and enjoy the company of neighbors and friends. You are the most important part of your market starting today! ~The staff at the Port Orchard Public Market

Don Ryan: Self-directed business owner has vision for public market

Don Ryan has been a self-directed business owner since the early 1990s. After a devastating economy from 2008 through 2012, Don joined the Port Orchard Bay Street Association to help turn around the downtown business core. A vision of a new identity and tourism for Port Orchard has been the goal since taking over as president of the POBSA in 2012. With the efforts of building owners, business owners, the POBSA and a lot of volunteer hours, they were able to graph a plan of action that involved more than two years of Ryan hard work. Ryan thinks the new Port Orchard Public Market will be a new destination for tourism, visitors and the locals to come back downtown and explore the wonders that so many have forgotten. “Historic Port Orchard will benefit greatly from these efforts,” he said. Ryan also is president of Ryan Resources and Distribution, Inc. — a small business that operates and manages numerous small companies such as The Brass Ring, The Trade Store, Affordable Car Rentals, Ryan Finance Corp, One Ten Lounges (Port Orchard and Poulsbo), Ryan Properties, Central Dock Restaurant and Bay Street Meat Company, both of which are in the new market.
