The people are very weird. The produce is good. There are many stands where you can have lunch or kombucha (cultured tea). The fact that is outdoors is baddies because it always rains.

I am surprised by how many people are gathered in one place on a Saturday. After reading all of the reviews online, we decided to venture here after standing in line with Voodoo donuts. I must say that I was underwhelmed. I found many of the items to be kitschy and not my style at all. If I had to... More

We went to the market (on a rainy day even) and had a great time. There were a large number of vendors selling everything from locally produce to cat body pillows (yes, we purchased two for our kitties). It was a lot of fun and would do it again.

We go to this market every time we're in Portland and it never disappoints. Tons of vendors to browse through and there's always delicious food carts as well. Most of the market is under a big tent for rainy days.

So many independent vendors selling all sorts of things...from clothing to ceramics to food. Loved browsing and talking with the vendors and artists. Picked up quite a few things that were handmade by local artisits. Supporting the individual as opposed to a large-scale chain store is something that I strive for, and the Saturday Market is a great place to... More

We arrived in Portland and had to hit the Saturday Market. It was fantastic. Great variety of vendors. We had to buy gloves and a hat.

This is a great place to find unique, homemade and natural items. I found lots of handmade purses and clothing, natural candles, unique jewelry, etc. The smells of the nearby food carts fill the air and make your stomach grumble. Often times there is music in the common area. The prices vary greatly from vendor to vendor. I highly recommend... More

We like markets like this, and Portland's is very high on our list of favorites. The quality of artists and vendors is incredibly high and incredibly consistent - there was interesting stuff everywhere you turned. One way I measure the quality of a market is how long it takes me to get to the end - and Portland's got the... More
