This is a must see for any out-of-town visitors and at least a yearly visit for us locals. I really enjoy seeing the variety of artisans and there is a large number of them. The food options are numerous also. You can also shop the "import" area with things from Asia or Latin America. The street performers can be entertaining.

My wife and I decided to take our visiting niece to the Portland Saturday Market on a Sunday in mid July. We got there at about 11am, pretty much the right time. Lots of vendors selling just about anything locally made you might need or think of. This isn't garage sale type stuff, it's not cheap nor is it "previously... More

Another fun market featuring arts and crafts. There’s quite a bit of hippie wood and ceramic throw items, but it was great fun for people watching. Men in skirts sold eye pillows. Pierced women hawked their silver jewelry. I felt like the only non-tattooed market goer but that’s part of the fun of Portland. Note: Voodoo Donuts is right around... More

Grab a cup of Coffee and walk the market place, you will find everything from fresh flowers, to pottery, art, tie died t-shirts, to fresh cut fruit. Great little food stands in the market as well. If you are staying out by the airport you can take the train right to the market, it will drop you off right in... More

I love Saturday Market.....the variety of people, the variety of clothes people wear, the hand made products. It is a fun experience and you get some exercise. Everyone always seems to be in a good mood which is a bonus.

This large market has so much to offer. Amazing booths with true artists, plenty of food booths, the river right there, and a walking/biking path. Live music as well as street buskers add to the entertainment. It's on Sunday's too!

We went on Sunday. This is one of the better open markets I've seen in my travels. There was a nice variety of quality locally made crafts and food. (Look for the women selling the garlic grating ceramic dishes!) You could easily spend a couple of hours wandering through the stalls. As a bonus, Voodoo Doughnuts is just down the... More

Always something new to see or eat. Fun weekend activity for the entire family. I love taking people from out of town here to get a dose of Portland culture.

Spent several hours wandering around, probably could have done more. Some unique crafts and art, a good selection of food, two musical acts and a beer tent. What more could you want? A highlight of the trip for sure and worth a sizeable chunk of time to really explore.

Always take out of town guests to the Saturday market to walk through the downtown "culture". Great for people watching. There are homeless people and persons obviously on drugs at times. Keep watch on your kids with you. Some highlight vendors to look for : 1) the booth that has the "Real Game of Life" game= extremely fun with family... More
