We really enjoyed our visit to the Saturday Market, even in the drizzle. Loved eating breakfast from the vendors near the bay and especially enjoyed the Italian Soda at the coffee stand where they make their own syrups. Bought the coolest T-shirt and was in walking distance to the Chinese Gardens. Parking downtown on Saturdays is very reasonable and close... More

I heard a lot about this place. For me nothing that I would generally want to buy and a lot of very touristy items. There are homeless everywhere which made me feel uncomfortable. Skip this unless you have no where else to go. The parking was easy - $5 dollars for a day in SmartPark garage.

Lots of unusual vendors. A sprawling market, takes up a number of city blocks. Kept thinking I was at the end and then there was more. Ended up not purchasing anything, more because of limited baggage room than anything else.

Perfect way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon. An eclectic mix of stalls selling local goods especially woodwork, pottery, jewellery and art and many other items Two food court areas with music and a variety of food truck type offerings

Large amount of food and craft vendors. Selling a little bit of everything. Market located on the river which is very pretty and walkable. There were number of homeless in the area but they stayed to themselves.

Nothing particularly exciting in terms of products. Was hoping for more of a food selection and was disappointed. Been there done that.

On a weekend visit for a wedding we decided to go to the downtown Saturday market to spend some time. We have several markets that we visit on the East coast so we wanted to compare. The market is very large with over 400 vendors. There is no way to see all of them - not only because of the... More

We arrived in Portland late Saturday night, but wanted to enjoy watching marathon runners competing on Sunday. It was great to find many of the market stalls, most in a covered pavilion, in operation.* We savoured great street food (Pad Thai), examined some outstanding craft creativity (wood, glass, stone, ceramics, gemstones, precious metals, etc) and enjoyed a wonderful caramel cappuccino...

Portland Saturday Market is held alongside the Willamette River and on Ankeny St. both just south of Burnside. There are many craft and artisan booths selling locally made items. There are also quite a few street performers for entertainment along with many many food vendors. If you are in Portland on a Saturday, plan to stop at the Portland Saturday... More
