Really enjoyed the SAturday market. It was a drizzly kind of day but still had a great time and enjoyed the music, street performers and great arts & crafts.

If you are in Portland over the weekend while market is in effect, it is a must see. Not only is it a real "slice" of the Portland made famous by the TV show Portlandia (i.e. in all its eccentricity) it offers an array of product not usually seen at such fairs. Great setting in a historic area of turn-of-the-Twentieth... More

There were lots of craft booths with local artist....art, glass, t-shirts, plants, woodwork etc. Prices were fair to high (mostly on the high side). I thought the food would be hip and healthy, turns out it was mostly fried elephant ears, lemonade,and fair food. TriMet goes directly through the market where the street perform are so please watch your kids.... More

Having not been to Portland for about 12 years I really looked forward to returning and seeing how the river front had evolved...... Apparently "Keep Portland Weird" means piercing and tattoing the hell out of yourself and getting your hair dyed to a cotton candy color and essentially being dirty and homeless. Filth is not "eclectic", its just filth. Downtown... More

I am from the area and on a recent visit, I took my husband for his first experience with the Portland Saturday Market. We only had time for lunch and a quick stroll through, and both left wishing we could have stayed longer. Vegetarian food, live music, fragrant spices and roasted almonds, tye dye clothing, gorgeous photographic prints and handmade... More

We came on a Saturday, but I read that it's also open on Sunday. There's lots of booths selling merchandise and food. It was a fun way to spend part of your day if you enjoy shopping. It was very hot the day we came, so we didn't spend much time here. Would come back when it's cooler and take... More

Just a eclectic group of artists, food trucks and vendors. Tons of fun! Family friendly. You could stay for hours and just browse. Also, it is right near the river, so there are cool views as well.

We were able to pick up several unique birthday gifts - lots of food too. Get there early - very popular and gets crowded later in the day.

In and around this market there is plenty to buy and do, or just hand out. Wine tastings, food stands, artists, crafters, live music, interesting characters, beer, coffee, almost all local and many unique. And then there's the people-watching. Great way to spend a few hours.
