It was an experience to walk through the saturday market. It is very large, on both sides of the street. You could spend hours there walking around and looking at all the crafts, vendors and enjoying all the different types of foods they have available. There are many of the same types of souvenir items from one booth to the next, so be sure to walk around first. I enjoyed people watching and listening to the entertainment that had available.

My second trip to the Portland Saturday Market and I always find something there for me. So many great ideas and items to play with and buy. Most vendors are friendly and willing to strike up a conversation. Great way to spend Saturday Morning.

“One of the best markets around”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

At Portland Saturday Market, you can surely find any kind of gift to suit anyone's taste. What a wide variety of unique items! Browse your way from tent to tent, and you'll have a hard time making a decision. Good food choices as well from the many food vendors. It's also a great place to watch people and enjoy Waterfront Park. I would recommend taking the Max and avoiding parking.

“Wow!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

If you like outdoor markets, then this is a MUST SEE when in Portland. Lots of vendors selling their wares in two separate locations. Fun booths, good food & drink and great people watching.
