The day I went was wet, Portland wet! However, it was an interesting experience. Lots of people visit from all over the country and Canada. I found some items for sale to be very original and some to be totally clique or cheap. Sellers seem very friendly as well!

As the large sign painted near the market reads, indeed the citizens of Portlandia are proud of their uniqueness! The Saturday Market really is a good way for those visiting the city to really catch a glimpse of a long standing tradition. The market is located in the Old Town area by the Willamette (I now know how to pronounce... More

I found the Portland Saturday Market to be one of the best things I visited in my stay. There was an incredible amount of things to look at and buy. I ended up buying 3 photographs of Portland. The man I bought it from let me get a 4th for free since I paid by cash. I stopped at a... More

If you are visiting Portland on the weekend...you must go to the Portland Saturday Market!! Parking is $5 in a nearby garage, you can walk along the water where everyone is out playing and laying in teh grass, and then you enter the market. The food stands are all to die for as are all the arts, crafts, and products.... More

Right by the Waterfront, this is a spot for street artists, street musicians, families with dogs and of course, a marketplace to see artisan's and hand-made creations. Prices are high. I spent almost all afternoon looking for a hoodie but couldn't find one it was worth its value. One can bargain, of course, but I'm not really good at that.... More

Visited Portland from Indianapolis on St Patty weekend. Family members took us to visit the market. So many food options, good music, great art and generally nice people! The view of the Columbia river, the mountains, and the overall scenery was gorgeous. Fun!

We love this venue. Everything sold is made by the artisan selling it. This event runs Saturday and Sunday, and it is situated along the beautiful waterfront park. There is a food court area across the street where a live band performs. By the food court is a bazaar selling the usual tourist souvenirs. There are plenty of portable bathrooms.... More

We went to the Portland Saturday Market in November. While it was a bit drizzly, that didn't keep people away by any means. Lots of vendors along the river as well as across the street to browse and enjoy their goods. I was looking specifically for a bag so I didn't spend a great deal of time looking at each... More
