This is by far one of the better Saturday Markets I've been to. Amazing array of vendors, that just keeps getting bigger and better. Fantastic food vendors with every imaginable type of food, it's almost impossible to resist! But, resist you must, so that you can come back over and over and experience something new each time! I have a... More

This is a fun spot to hang out on a Saturday afternoon. First it is a good way to truly experience the city if you are short on time or need a nice intro for first time visitors. You find a great city view at Riverfront Park and. Good way to just stroll or find a spot to sit and... More

Not only is this a great market, but it has a lot of things unique to the Portland area. It's a great place to buy t-shirts and gifts for friends. It has unique jewelry, artsy stuff, great food and awesome people watching! It's not too far from Voodoo Donut if you want to stop there. I was able to find... More

Never get tired of looking and eating through this place. I think this is the best place to find unusual gifts for somebody that is difficult to buy for.

Open Saturdays and Sundays. Lots of locally produced wares. We particularly liked the wood jewelry boxes and the stoneware.

Recently we visited the Saturday Market during a submarine veteran’s reunion held at the Sheraton Airport Hotel. We found the train from the airport to the market very convenient and a lot cheaper for us seniors than the reunion’s tour bus. This is a unique market with a variety of local artists and food vendors. Since my wife and I... More

Very expansive market located right on the river walk. Many eclitic vendors selling out of tents/booths... On a sunny day, it's a great way to spend a saturday morning, regardless if you buy anything
