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

We spent several hours here going through the market several times. All of the vendors that we talked to were very friendly. It wasn't the typical in your face sale.

A beautiful fall morning and a stroll to the Portland Saturday Market down but the river, past the line at Voodoo doughnuts. Farmers or crafts markets have become ubiquitous but this one has a wonderful uniquely Portland feel. There are numerous food stalls with just about any cuisine you can want. The crepe place and Coffee place made for an... More

We took the trolley and walked the six or so blocks to the market. be forewarned, it's right next to the homeless shelter and we were dodging derelicts to get there. It's really just a huge craft fair, without much that we couldn't get at our own art market back home in Ogden.
