We really enjoyed the Portland Saturday market. It was raining the whole time but there was some cover and we had umbrellas. We got some hand crafted wooden salad servers, jewellery, teas. Lots of unique gifts. There was lots of really good quality crafted goods. We didn’t eat at the stalls but they looked and smelled good. A worthwhile experience.

We visited in July as this was somewhere we were told was a must on our trip. I did get some amazing soaps and oils - as one market stall holder said to me, if you come to stay in Portland at some point you make soap! The stallholders were friendly and yes, there was the usual market content, including... More

We went when it was raining, but that is the chance you take in Oregon. It's a huge open aired market where craftsmen can show their wares. There is a lot to look at and a lot of very creative people. Food stands are available, or you can just go downtown. There are homeless people around, but you will get... More

I went around lunchtime, had some lunch, and shopped around for a few hours. Some great food choices and so many local vendors. I can't believe that they do this every Saturday! I was impressed that everything has to be homemade. The food stands don't even have major soda brands because they aren't homemade!

We spent about 2 hours visiting this market. It's huge! Lots of unique jewelry, food, clothing and souvenirs. It's very popular, in a pretty location along the river and within easy walking distance of VooDoo Donuts and Powell Books. So you can see a lot just parking in one spot. A definite must if you visit Portland especially on a... More

Out of town guests always seem to enjoy the bridges, Willamette River, the esplanade and the Saturday Market tucked partially under the Burnside Bridge. While a sunny day is really lovely the crowds thin out when there is a rain. The artists/craftspeople are able to talk about their wares and it is easier to stroll through the market. The bridge...

We enjoyed strolling through the Saturday Market on a Sunday. The vendors have their own original crafts, artwork, and foods galore! There were some pretty unique pieces with lots of music. Parking is a little tricky.

If you're planning a trip to Portland, make sure you make time for the Saturday Market. It's like a local fair with live music, food and artisan booths, but there are some really unique crafts there you won't find anywhere else. Great place to get souvenirs while supporting local business owners. Rent the orange Nike bikes and ride down there.... More
