Market shopping with everything you could imagine. Be sure to shop around before buying. Parking is hard to find, and parking that is available is metered so have change on you.

We could have easily spent all day there. The food was good, the people were interesting, and there was something for everyone.

Go early. Market is in full swing by 10 AM. Go hungry...so much food. So much shopping. Lots of great people watching. Street performers. Easy access by train. Jump off at Skidmore Fountain. Watch for the "Angel of the Market," a very outgoing lady dressed in rainbow-coloured garb.

I thoroughly enjoyed the variety and quality of the products sold by the local vendors. The "international" side of the market was a lot of junk. There are portable toilets provided and hand washing facilities. The food variety is good; the Greek stand was the most popular. Rather than pay downtown parking, I suggest riding the MAX line in. The... More

Open Saturday AND Sunday. We were able to pick up a few t-shirts and local photography here. Great local art, food and full of the cultural feel of the city. Bring cash as it makes it easier for some vendors (and can help haggle a little). Able to do a quick walk through, but planning 1-2 hours to see everything,... More

Been a local for about 18 years now, definitely must do! Empanadas and gyros are especially good - as well as the fruit in a cup!

We loved the Saturday market in the SW river front. (Don't get it mixed up with the farmers market on the SE area! ). There are loads of stalls with really unique stuff typically Portland ie some quirky gear. Loved it. Good selection of food too which you can enjoy by the water. Great fun.

Before heading to the airport, I stopped at the Portland Saturday Market and was greatly impressed by the wide range of artisans there selling their wares. There was a good crowd, welcoming people and great food available. Being riverside enhanced the experience.

Portland's Saturday, and yes it's on Sunday as well, is a must see for folks from out of town. There is a wide range it times from Soap, clothing, jewelry, art work to great food. Bring plenty of water a hungry tummy and take your time to browse. After finding some great deals pick out your great lunch, walk over... More
