Go once and then you'll never really need to go again, unless you find a food truck you really like or enjoy shopping for aprons, tie-dye, and questionable jewelry. There were a few booths with artwork that I was genuinely interested in, but a lot of it is also crap you'll find in booths at a State Fair. The nonsense... More

Lots of craft stalls, some lovely hats, bags, and jewellery. And great food too - chowder, bbq, Mexican, Thai, amongst others, and a Lebanese stall which had a massive queue all morning - must be good!

The Portland Saturday Market is a juried handcrafted market located on the waterfront east of the light rail tracks. The Skidmore Market is mostly handcrafted imports. Both are lovely markets, however if you want an authentic hand made item made in the northwest, you'll find that at the Portland Saturday (Sunday too) Market.

I don't live in Portland, and have always heard about the Saturday Market. Let me clarify the confusion, there are two: Farmer's market at PSU, and Arts/Crafts market by the water. The Farmer's Market is only open on Saturdays, and the Arts/Crafts open both Saturday and Sunday. I went to the Arts/Crafts on Saturday. I feel pressured to give a... More

Caught the free Link from Lloyd District hotel to this weekend attraction on a Sunday. Loads of craft booths and a great diversity of ethnic food wagons. I needed a massage badly and went to a booth with a male and female masseuse. The female didn't have any customers but told me that I could write my name in the... More

We walked here from our hotel but the Max free rail will drop you off right nearby too. Head out to the sections of the market along the waterfront. The food booths are out that way and you can browse the vendors then look out at the river or sit in the grass nearby and have a snack. Some of... More

As my title implies, this market is amazingly diverse and really enjoyable. As I interacted with some of the vendors, they made mention that the market has been updated quite a bit since 2009 so if you are reading about the sketchy nature prior to then, I would suggest you disregard. My friends and I went on a Sunday (they... More
