The Portland Mercury is Portland, Oregon’s number one alternative weekly newspaper that’s filled with brash, irreverent wit and opinion, as well as insightful news articles that hold our elected officials feet to the fire when it comes to the subject of social justice. Founded in 2000 as a sister publication to Seattle’s The Stranger, the Mercury has won numerous national awards for journalism, arts criticism, and design, making it one of the most widely respected and read weeklies in the nation.

The Mercury’s website and blog are Portland’s “go-to” sources for the latest in local breaking news, events, and comedy. Backed up by a robust and hugely popular social media presence, the Mercury is reaching more readers across the nation than ever before.

Along with their weekly edition, the Mercury also publishes a host of entertaining and informative spin-off magazines, including Eat and Drink neighborhood guides that provide even more choices for their hungry readership, as well as Agenda, the city’s best guide to the art and culture scene, and True Parent—a lively, no BS magazine aimed at relieving the stressful lives of working, diverse parents.

The Portland Mercury is passionate about its city, and proves it every week by following their time-honored motto: Providing News, Entertainment, and Trouble.

    The Mercury Is... Like Portland itself, the Mercury is decidedly independent. Our pages offer an insider's point of view that the city trusts. Bright, sometimes bruising, and undeniably funny, we detail local music, arts, and news with passion and authority. The Mercury is all over Portland; from restaurants to coffee houses, bars to clubs, theaters to retailers, laptops to desktops, and on every campus and street corner--we've got the city covered. The Mercury Reaches... Mercury readers are affluent urbanites in their 20s and 30s with impressive disposable incomes and an appetite for everything the city has to offer. They see more live shows and movies, eat out and shop more, and spend more time online than readers of any other paper in town. Advertising in the Mercury cuts through the clutter to target Portland's most active consumers. And now, with the Mercury's combined print and online readership, your ad will be seen by more people than ever.
