Saturday Market -- which is open Sunday, too -- is a really fun Portland thing. The crafts are much more interesting than most other such fairs, with lots of funky housewares, jewelry, art, photography, etc. It's great they're all local artists, too. The food aisle is also really good, with especially great tea at the chai tea booth. We have... More

I've been to many, many craft fairs over the past 40 years and this one is good, not stellar, but ypu can find well made crafts at very good prices (compared to East coast prices). Been at market several times over several years and I love looking for my favorite crafters. Even found a potter who I see at the... More

Short: Great vibe though the weather was less than optimal. The variety of shops is nice and the level of work is very good. Prices were as expected and found some nice surprises. Would have stayed longer, however the wetness got to us. Long: We parked a few blocks away and walked over getting a bit wet and chilled. There... More

This is a fantastic outdoor market which occurs on Saturdays and Sundays along the waterfront in Portland. It is very easily accessible using the public transportation system from anywhere in the city. It's a great place to find one of a kind handmade items. There are a variety of food carts with food from all over the world. You can... More

Revisited on a beautiful spring day and all the shopkeepers were especially happy. Love Out of the Closet Artwear and its great keepers, who that day were wearing both tyedye and scuba gear because, well, it's Portland. Always something new to see.

We spent 3 great days exploring Portland in June 2014. The Saturday Market was great - from handcrafted goods (my husband bought a cap that he still wears daily) and tasty food and wine offerings, we enjoyed the waterfront location with its unique Portland flavor. Street entertainment, children playing in the water "fountains" shooting up from the pavement, vendors with... More

I usually try to go to the Saturday Market because of the diversity of merchants that are at the market, but on my recent visit, it seems that there weren't a lot of merchants around. There was some food stalls there (of course, a good majority don't accept cards so make sure to bring cash with you). Also, I was... More

We rode the trolley to the market on a rainy Saturday morning not knowing if the weather would impact the market. The market was in full swing despite the rain, it helps that a lot of the stalls are under cover and protected. It is a typical craft market with a Portland vibe to a lot of the items. We... More

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon (that's right, the Saturday market is also open on Sunday), we walked around the stalls to admire the beautiful arts and crafts. Wonderful woodblock prints, humorous drawings, unique paintings and posters, pottery, woodwork, jewelry, etc. etc. I bought a birdhouse made up of a cup and saucer. Lots of different foods that would make a... More

My husband and I planned on staying that day in Portland to visit their Saturday Market. It was not as big as I expected but they had a reasonable number of local artists and food stalls. We spent a few hours between looking at the fares and listening to street musicians. We had a lovely morning, and it was not... More
