Open Saturdays 10-5 from April-mid November. Each Saturday Lane County's favorite artisans, chefs and musicians bring their creations to Saturday Market, Eugene's weekly open-air Marketplace, creating a vibrant event that nurtures local commerce and community. Founded in May of 1970, Eugene's Saturday Market is Oregon's original Saturday Market, and the oldest weekly open-air crafts festival in the United States.  Wander among the 200 booths filled with fine handcrafts, always sold by the artisans themselves. Jewelers, potters, seamstresses, candle makers, glass workers and many more bring their arts to sell. The International Food Court features seventeen food booths serving a wide array of foods prepared fresh on site, including burritos, pad thai, pizza and cheesecake. The Market Stage showcases local and regional musicians playing everything from original folk to jazz, Celtic music to rock-and-roll all day long. Lane County Farmers' Market is just across the street each Saturday. Two nearby parking structures provide plenty of free parking, and the area is fully wheelchair accessible.

Saturday Market is the consummate Eugene experience. Tie dye, food vendors, little artsy crafty booths and lots of locally grown foods! I agree folks should bring cash as well as a bag or two as you will surely fill them.

Lots of various vendors. Prices seem high. Should be more food vendors. Like that it is open from April-November.

I went there to have the pad thai noodles that are served there and they were great as usual. Also the farmers market is worth the visit for local fruits, veggies and flowers.

I've attended the market on both of my visits to Eugene and it will always be a place I go when out that way. It's a free event, good people watching, interesting booths, different foods, and organic fruits and veggies. We had so much fun walking around and chatting about the art, jewelry, and entertainers that were there. My wife... More

If you want to experience all that is Eugene , take in the Saturday market and don't forget to stop by "The Pie Lady" it is the best.. The fresh fruit and vegetables for sale across the street is like walking through a farmer's garden,
