If you are looking for a handmade gift this is the place to come. So interesting. Lots of food and beer too. It takes at least an hour or more to go through the market as there are so many booths. We bought jewelry and art. Reasonable prices.

Ensure you go with a full wallet and empty belly. In addition to exploring what the local vendors are selling, the food options are endless. Whatever your desire, you are going to be able to find it at the Portland Saturday Market. When visiting a city, it is always great when they have a market that allows locals to sell... More

The Saturday market offers a little bit of everything. From craft cider to arts & crafts, there is a little of everything to see here. It's not super huge, but it's enough to keep the family occupied for a couple of hours.

We were able to make a few last minute purchases for handmade holiday presents - we found a wooden box for jewelry, special gloves without fingers, and XMAS ornaments. Walking through all of the various stands was so interesting. We spent 2 hours just browsing the different stalls.

We thought this was fun to walk around once but we expected more fresh fruit and vegetable stands. Our son played in the fountain, we had lunch but if we were locals we wouldn't go back every weekend.

The Saturday Market is a great place to find the unusual gift that is handmade by a local artist. I was disappointed to find things that were "Made in China". Please keep the market pure of imports. Our local artist need our support. The set-up of the market is fantastic, it is almost all undercover which is nice on a... More

Most artist offerings here recognize no established school of thought but create using myriad resources unconventionally and are masters of it. Not much sold for children. Lots of sticky, sugary food items and A nice stroll along the waterfront.

I was able to spend the entire day along the waterfront with much of that time at the market. The vendors east of the bridge are artisans and craftspersons selling their wares. It was really nice to meet the person that made the doggie rain jackets I bought. There were musicians and street performers, lots of dogs having fun, and... More
