Attraction details
Owner description: Open Saturdays 10-5 from April-mid November. Each Saturday Lane County's favorite artisans, chefs and musicians bring their creations to Saturday Market, Eugene's weekly open-air Marketplace, creating a vibrant event that nurtures local commerce and community. Founded in May of 1970, Eugene's Saturday Market is Oregon's original Saturday Market, and the oldest weekly open-air crafts festival in the United States. Wander among the 200 booths filled with fine handcrafts, always sold by the artisans themselves. Jewelers, potters, seamstresses, candle makers, glass workers and many more bring their arts to sell. The International Food Court features seventeen food booths serving a wide array of foods prepared fresh on site, including burritos, pad thai, pizza and cheesecake. The Market Stage showcases local and regional musicians playing everything from original folk to jazz, Celtic music to rock-and-roll all day long. Lane County Farmers' Market is just across the street each Saturday. Two nearby parking structures provide plenty of free parking, and the area is fully wheelchair accessible.

Wow! I have experienced Farmer’s markets in other places, but this one is fantastic! There are the vendors of farm fresh and organic products including vegetables, fruits, locally sourced honey and syrups, eggs, grass fed antibiotic free meats including pork, poultry, beef, and lamb, and fresh seafood from the coast. Numerous delicious prepared food options are available with tables nearby to enjoy our selections. Another 2 block section is full of art, pottery, jewelry, unique tee shirts and hats, fortune tellers and more. On every corner there is live music of almost every genre, I’ve seen violins, keyboards, accordions, banjos, cellos and a sitar. There is another corner that has drums pounding a steady beat and people can be seen dancing to a different drummer, literally. But the essence of the market can be seen in the people. You get a true taste of the artsy, eclectic flavor of the city of Eugene by walking through this wonderful market.

My husband, friends & I decided that this is one of the best Farmers Markets we've been in terms of the sheer number & variety of vendors. There's also a big section roped off just for the food vendors (Indian, Thai, Mexican, etc) with seats/benches. Porta-potties available, dogs not allowed but I saw a few on the outskirts. This event supposedly goes 9 am to 3 pm but as soon as the vendors set up before 9, the crowds start. Impressive display of fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers, nuts, honey, mushrooms, etc that is separate from the manufactured items. Will definitely come back if we're in Eugene again!
