I guess I was expecting more based off of the reviews/articles I read. I envisioned it to be much larger than it was. Sure, they have some nice stuff, but seeing it once was enough for us. Not on our "Must See" list of recommendations.

I have visited over 70 cities in the world, shopping experience in this market made me want to move here! Every vendor I talk to are extremely nice even you did not buy their product. I bought a big bag with zipper for $5 only. I bought a very cool thumb piano, glass jewelry set from mega bead, two glass... More

In keeping with "keep Portland Weird" you can find unusual gifts for a reasonable price! And there are some wildly beautiful Glass ware, Jewelry, trinkets, etc. Located in Old Town you can take the MAX (city-wide transportation), free parking (but limited) or Pay to Park. It's a Special Place for lunching or treating yourself. Kids are welcome to explore. Plan... More

The location is not the best area of town but the market is wonderful. Lots of local artisans selling their wares. There are some beautiful displays of photographs, paintings, jewelry and much more. We found some original items for friends and family for their Christmas gifts and a few purchases for ourselves. Well worth a visit if you like arts... More

First off, it was such a beautiful day, being on the river walkway, the smell of different foods, many other things going on, the dragon paddle boat races, some bike ride, an aids walk, and of course the market. Street musicians playing, my fave was the unicycle darth Vader bagpipe rider. Vendors were nice and fun to chat with. We... More

We went twice in one weekend - (It's open Sunday, too) and it's such a neat place. So many vendors selling all manor of items, from paintings to shirts to jewelry to wooden boxes. It's not the same stuff you see everywhere else, we found really interesting items and took a few home with us. It's an easy walk to... More

I just wasn't impressed with the items that were for sale - there were lots of food items - sort of like you would see at a fair. I think it is someplace I would have skipped if I had known it was this way.

This was a very large craft market. It had a section of food vendors and a place to set under an tent. There were several photographers, jewelry makers, nd several miscellaneous vendors. It is in a nice location along the Riverfront. It was nice to walk around and check out the vendors.

This is a fun outdoor market with vendor booths selling everything from food to handmade crafts to high-end art. Tons of vendors can supply tasty lunches, and a lovely courtyard with a central fountain offers a great place to relax on the grass and people-watch.

This market was awesome and I highly recommend it. I went on a Sunday and didn't have to worry about parking fees and it was easy to find street parking. There really is something for everyone at this market and it was fun walking around and looking through it all. There are food vendors but I did not eat at... More
