Frigg’s Mercantile was named after the Norse goddess of the home. We are a homesteading shop and education center in Portland, Oregon. We carry essential homesteading supplies for food preservation, soap-making, candle-making, fermenting, and cheesemaking, and we provide a community space for homesteading classes and workshops. We believe that anybody can be a “maker” if equipped with the right tools and knowledge to make their adventures a success!

About the Owner
Lee Ann Moyer opened Frigg’s after spending many years tinkering on homesteading projects with her husband in their Portland kitchen. As more and more friends and family began asking about how to make homemade soap, cheese, kombucha etc., she decided to make the leap to creating a community space where anyone could develop these skills.
Lee Ann Moyer grew up in the Midwest and spent eight years in Paris before moving to Portland in 2008. Before opening Frigg’s, she was a licensed clinical Speech-Language Pathologist, but she left the field after the birth of her fourth child in 2016. Earlier that year, she had become the owner of Portland Moms Blog, an online community by and for local families, and she focused her efforts on growing the site while developing the Frigg’s concept over the next two years. Frigg’s opened in March of 2018.
As a family-owned business, the kids are often at the shop. The oldest, Mateo (11), enjoys printing out pricing labels, Zane (6) likes to make bath bombs, Kyle (4) chats with customers about dragons, and Daphne (almost 2) regularly rearranges merchandise. We are proud to be members of The MOB NW (Mommy-Owned Businesses) and we love hosting kids’ birthday parties, camps, and workshops in addition to our grown-up events.
