This was a fun time! I went with something in mind that I wanted to but and sure enough, it was there! Bought Christmas presents and all sorts of good thing! Make sure to stop by Heartstrings Studio and check out their homemade jewelry! I just love mine! It began to rain while we were there but didn't hinder anything!

Locals love the Portland Saturday Market but it is a great place for visitors, too. Masses of hand-made goods, often presented by the person who spent many hours making them.

We've been to the Saturday Market many times over the past couple of decades. The first time or two was fun - probably mostly because it was somewhere we hadn't been before. This was back when most of the market was under the bridge in PDX. Now it's mostly out in the open at the waterfront park area. Doesn't seem... More

We were expecting this market to be a bit bigger. It's mostly crafts, which all looked fairly interesting but we didn't see anything we really wanted. I don't think there was much to keep the kids interested really. We walked there from downtown - and around the area seem to be more homeless people than we saw anywhere else, although... More

The Saturday Sunday market is a great way to see many local craft artists displaying their art. There are a good number of food vendors. The market covers several city blocks. Overall the market is very well done. Parking can be tough but doable.

I don't understand the appeal of the Portland Saturday Market. It's just a big craft fair. Seems like it's more for tourists. There were some lovely artisan items if you are into that sort of thing.

Great morning of enticing the senses with creative handmade treasures and enticing food aromas. Lots to see: pre-Halloween costumed people, street musicians, and customers galore! We didn't arrive with a pre-determined list of look for's to purchase, but we left with several unique items that caught our fancy. ☺

Our local Portland friends told us we simply must visit Saturday Market. The offer of starting the day with Voodoo donuts was a great incentive! There really is something for everybody in the craft fair. I am a mountain biker and found a welded steel wire mountain bike business card holder - wow! There is also a great variety of... More

I had an hour between tours, and I was dropped in what I thought was the market, but it had a lot of the stuff that you can get at any flea, and not so good food. Luckily (after wasting 20 minutes in that area), I saw across the street. A quince pastry was amazing, but nothing else really caught... More

My husband is from Portland and the first time he took me there, he told me that the Saturday Market is a must. It's also where you can get the "classic" Portland sign picture (with the reindeer). I'm not much of a shopper, so it was the most fun thing we could've done, but it was definitely an interesting experience... More
