Fun market, vendors - silver jewelry, beeswax candles, clothing, plants, beautiful flowers, mostly handmade local items, quite a bit of vendors. Yummy food wagons to pick from. Will come again. Lots of people. Free to get in

We went over Memorial Day weekend, so it was bound to be crowded, but it felt not only crowded but squished-in...so it was hard to walk around, dodging people left and right. It WAS interesting people-watching!

We strolled through the Sat Market in Portland to check out the booths. It was pretty much what you’d expect - art, jewelry and other knick knacks. There was also live music and food venues. We didn’t buy anything.

Pleasantly surprised by the local artists and quality of some of the vendors. Refreshing to find locally made products as opposed to cheap imports. Fun area to check out along the riverfront. Well worth a visit.

It is also open not just Saturdays. The entire strip is clean and ppl are well mannered. The food prices are a little more expensive than other places as expected. A good walk along the water.

I loved the market, so many artisans selling their wares. We ended up buying quite a few bits to take home. Loads of crafts & food alike. A must do if you’re in Portland on a Saturday.
