Eugene Saturday Market, Eugene

4.5
Each Saturday, Lane County’s favorite artisans, chefs and musicians bring their creations to Eugene Saturday Market, Eugene’s weekly open-air marketplace, creating a vibrant event that nurtures local commerce and community. Founded in May of 1970, this 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 fifteen 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.

  • Uniquely Eugenean. Try it, you might like it. Then again, you might not. Handmade arts and crafts are sometimes exquisite, but the food section really needs some new vendors. Perhaps the best thing about Saturday Market is the extensive selection of fresh produce. My advice is to go early, because both the farmers and the vendors often leave early, so late afternoon shoppers get little selection if any.
  • The Saturday Market is a Eugene fixture and, thankfully, always has something for everyone. I remember my first trip as a young teen when a lovely earthy woman wrapped a lock of my hair in colored thread before affixing a bead of petrified wood to the end. I was in love from that bead and I continue to make trips for treasures today. I hope everyone can experience the Saturday Market - from the summer concoctions to the winter/holiday fairs.
  • We had a wonderful day with the family. The atmosphere was festive, colorful and the merchandise was all locally crafted and the displays delightful. The food was good for this type of venue and enough variety to satisfy any pallet. What a beautiful way to spend a day in Eugene. Next time I'm in this area I will make it a point to revisit this delight, this gem in the middle of town.
  • This is the epicenter of what is Eugene. Produce is fabulous. A lot of artistic folks selling their talent.
  • The vendors are very happy to discuss all aspects of their products. Knowing how much thought and effort goes into an item makes it that much more valuable. It's nice to have a market where everything is handmade.
