The Portland Saturday Market, held on both Saturday and Sunday, is worth a visit! There is a large variety of both handmade crafts and food. There are also musicians playing. Downtown can be a busy place, so we chose to take the MAX to the Market. Get off at the Skidmore Fountain and you will be right at the Saturday... More

While there were some vendors selling unique and original items (Spoonman Creations being the best - dozens of items make from old utensils) most of the booths were selling sub-par items strictly geared to the tourist market. Many of the items were grossly overpriced while others were clearly imported from overseas. Feel free to check it out but keep your... More

This is a very interesting event but it is definitely not a farmers market like the one in Seattle . It's more like a craft fair. It's in city center so you're near many other city attractions. Worth spending a couple hours. There are some food vendors but the real food truck area is a couple blocks away.

Visited on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. There was so much to see and a wide variety of venders. Had some of the fresh fruit cup things and it was delicious! If you have time to kill on your trip, definitely spend a little time browsing here.

We went a few weeks ago to see one vendor in specific. The glass mobile guy Thom. Anyone who has been there knows who he is by what he makes. We went early morning on a Saturday, arrived 11ish and got cheap parking within 10 blocks. We always enjoy ourselves as long you can manage to avoid the panhandlers. Take... More

The Saturday Market is pretty large, so it can take some time to have a look through. The wares are pretty varied, as is the range of food available from all the food carts (though there is a slight over-abundance of Elephant Ear vendors). There's also live music! You could probably whip through here in under an hour, but set... More

If you are looking for the best location to view "Portlandia", the Saturday Market is that place. Transients, barristas, jugglers, hippies, wondering families, and people in exercise clothing all frequent this large outdoor market during the extended summer months. You can find hot food, produce, wood carvings, lost pot heads, trinkets, bum bracelets, water fountains, and ice cream. It's well... More

Great produce. Excellent selections from fruit, veggies, hot food to local fruit jam makers. Glad we stopped by to check it out. We had so much fun!

We were in Portland on our yearly train trip with our 6 year old grandson. We started out on Saturday morning to go to the market, but it started to rain a lot. So we decided to go to Lloyd Center instead. We went to the market on Sunday, glad we did, because the weather was wonderful. They have extended... More

If you are lucky enough to be in Portland on a Saturday, checking out the Portland Saturday market should be on your list! There are many, many booths with handmade items, and one of a kind items, as well as your typical T-shirts. There were many different food booths as well. If you are looking for that unique gift, you... More
