I could not wait to visit the Portland Saturday Market it was #1 on my list of activities. What is confusing is there is also a Farmers Market downtown with colorful vegetables and big sunny flowers wonderfully displayed. I went to both and it was well worth the trip. To get there we rode the Trac which got us there... More

If you are in Portland on a weekend, make sure to go the Portland Saturday market. It is a hodgepodge of all kinds of stalls and vendors with nice jewelry to junky things, food, candy, etc. It all depends upon your taste and what you value, but there is original art, photography, leather work, beeswax candles, cat bow ties (not...

I enjoyed my time in this week-end market by Willamette River. The market is lined with lots of artists' stalls, craft vendors, and food carts. There's nothing better than to find products handcrafted or made in the U.S. We were able to make some nice purchases; hand-made soap, a green t-shirt, wall sign, and berry bowl pottery... all made in...

This was a great way to see all that Portland artisans have to offer. From soaps, to jewelry, to delicious food carts this is a must see on a Saturday!

The market was just like the ones you see in every other city. The food trucks were great but the non food booths sold jewelry and wood objects. We didn't find a thing to buy. People watching here was awesome!

It´s such a confusing name really. Why on earth do they call it Saturday Market when it´s open on Sundays as well? Great place to go and spend a couple of hours browsing through all the stalls. There are some very attractive arts and crafts. If I hadn´t been concerned about the weight I was allowed on my iternational flight... More

We passed this while riding the light rail and decided to come back. We spent a couple of hours there seeing the crafts, smelling all the foods, and watching the street entertainment. We had just finished a river cruise all week and had some time to kill waiting to go to the airport. We ran into others from the cruise... More

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
