South Waterfront and Farmers Market

Your business grows with the South Portland Business Association (SPBA)! Comprehensive street maps, web listings which appear via search engine queues, and featured blog posts are just some of the promotional services offered to you & your business with our co-opted marketing approach.

Join us for holiday parties, community events, city meetings, and networking events geared toward business owners, patrons, and stakeholders. Together, we make the South Portland neighborhood a better place to work, shop, and live!


For years, the South Portland Business Association has promoted businesses in Johns Landing, Lair Hill, and the South Waterfront. As Portland continues growing and expanding, South Portland will undoubtedly be one of the city’s most desired neighborhoods. As the neighborhoods fill with new residents, they will want to know everything they can about their new home. The South Portland Business Association wants to put your company into the minds of your new neighbors, letting them know they don’t need to battle traffic and congested parking downtown to get the goods & services they need.
