  • Are held every weekend marketplace Saturday: 10: 00 am to 5:00 pm, Sunday: 11: 00 am ~ 4:30 has been held in the Willamette River along a pm Tom MacCall Waterfront Park. MAX Skidmore Foundation station is preferred. Some shops and local arts and crafts, food trucks Portland feel the femininity ideal. At Skidmore Foundation preferred vagrants, homeless and on the streets of garbage, however, the atmosphere is not good. Going only by women was little scary.

  • I don't understand the appeal of the Portland Saturday Market. It's just a big craft fair. Seems like it's more for tourists. There were some lovely artisan items if you are into that sort of thing.

  • Great selection of stuff. Especially tasty foods and artist created knick knacks. Overall, a great day to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday. It's a good way to see the "weirdness" of Portland though the local artists eyes.
  • A great place to check out local goods and art from area artists and vendors. If you are looking to buy handmade, unique gifts, this is where you should check out! They have a decent selection of food carts and vendors as well, although they do tend to get busy. Whenever a friend visits from out of town, I take them here to show them a little of Portland.
  • I really enjoyed strolling through part of the Portland Downtown and river area at the Saturday Market. The weather was also perfect for checking out all the arts and crafts kiosks as well as the drink and food trucks/tents. I wish we had something like this back in Houston. There is also live music from a variety of artists and there is plenty of places to sit and just enjoy the view and people watch. There is a variety of delicious yet inexpensive eats to choose from, and I DO recommend trying the Elephant Ears if you've never had them. The sugary pastry can get a little sticky and messy, but it's so worth it! Plus they give you hand wipes to clean up afterwards. After enjoying the Saturday market, you can stroll up and down the park alongside the river along with everyone else. Definitely a very cool outdoor affair!
  • Great place to get away to or take visiting family & friends. Good eats & so many interesting things to look at & buy. Venders are friendly. They have security & Portland Park Rangers there. Voodoo Doughnuts is nearby as are many other shops etc.
  • A Portland tradition that doesn't disappoint. This open-air market is filled with sights and sounds, smells and tastes that evoke the best of the Pacific Northwest. Locally made art, clothing, jewelry, and food give options for just about everyone to find something they'll like.
