This is a cute market with a lot of vendors and neat items being sold. If you go close to Christmas there's a lot of options here for eccentric gifts. We enjoyed our leisurely stroll through the market and picked up a few items. There's lots to see!

The vendors at this market offer high quality art pieces of all kinds and media. If you are looking for a special gift for someone, you should be able to find something here.

Arrived a few minutes early before the 10:00 start and there were still some vendors setting up there spaces. Free to enter and located right on the water front at Burnside. A good place to start your Saturday. Mostly local people selling hand made items. From bent silverware to soap there is a lot to look at. When you are... More

We spent several hours here on Saturday morning and had a great time... so many places to stop and look and all kinds of food as well. We have markets like this at home but nothing nearly this big so we all really enjoyed the offerings there. An especially great way to get out and meet some local people and... More

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.
