I did this market as a crafts person in the 80's and I'm pleased to see that the central part of the Market still consists of genuine American craftspeople doing their own work. So many of the craft fairs now are filled with commercial imports that you might as well be visiting Walmart. The reason the PSM didn't get 5... More

We visited the Portland Saturday Market on Sunday !! It had many craft booths as well as options for interesting food, something Portland is known for along with its food trucks. The Market stretches along the downtown riverfront and several blocks back into the old town. Parking is easy on Sunday but metered from 1 - 7 pm on Sundays.... More

Start with the booths nearest the water if you have limited time so that you can really experience the craftsmanship of the artisans. If you like pierogies, please go to the polish booth. They are the best pierogies I have had in decades!

Probably something for everyone. A lot of fair-type foods; many, many vendors of unique and artistic creations. I could have spent more time going through the whole thing, as you never know what you'll find, but my group became tired/overwhelmed and had enough.

Visiting from out of state and wanted some down time which is easy to do in this city. Enjoyed the vibe, the artisans and their craft. We are not usually spenders and this market was captivating. Great food trucks and seating along the river capped off a fab day.

Went to the Saturday farmers market- the one on the PSU. It is the food market vs the art and wine w/c is located by the river side. Fruits and veggies looked amazing. Shopped for jams, offered by Packer orchards and bakery. Their Jalapeno pepper jam is a must buy! Very delish!

Friend and I were visiting from the Midwest and expecting a market with lots of produce and were surprised to find it was more of a crafters market. We both love stuff like that so had a great time. There were lots of cool artists with a variety of things, from cutting boards, paintings, photography, jewelry, pottery and more! It... More
