What a great way to spend a couple hours on a Saturday morning. The market is an easy walk on the RiverPark way. Great food, lots of good music, and fun items to choose from.

Checked out the Saturday Market downtown by the riverside park: Easy to find paid parking in a lot 1 block away. Plenty of live music, food booths and big mix of crafts and such. My daughter found more gift ideas for her mom than any selection of Strip Mall stores. I found the perfect Halloween costume - headgear with a... More

There are lots of fun things to see and do - eat, look at art, listen to a variety of musicians. I went twice on this trip - Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. Saturday morning was quiet - Sunday afternoon was packed.

There are different type of artists and different foods. I could spend half of the day in here. And I found some are offering very good prices.

I really enjoy all of the Portland Saturday markets. Getting around Portland is so easy with the multiple options of mass transit, that it was easy to get to all of the markets. The "main" Portland market is my favorite though. So many sights and sounds and scents. I enjoy talking with and buying from local vendors, supporting small businesses.

The market has lots of vendors and food stalls. Many tempting delicacies to choose from. The locals are out in storm as it was a sunny day. The vendors sell mostly handcrafted items and art. Plus it is huge, cover about 3 blocks if you stretch out the stalls into one line.

Lots to see, nearly all hand made items by local artists. This would be a great place to buy gifts. It was also quite nice just to walk around for a while. It is very big.

So much to buy and see, and test....amazing. We had lunch there, partner had Ethiopian food which was delightful, and I got one of my most favourite things to eat ever....Mexican Tamales, and I tried a papusa for the first time, which is like a grilled tamale.....amazing. You get to see a good section of what Portlanders are like, and... More
