  • This market is so cool! We come here every time we are in town on the weekend. There is something unique to find for a birthday or holiday gathering. The food is fantastic. The wares are quality. The artisans are just fabulous and quite varied. It's in a perfect location, right along the waterfront too. We highly recommend this market.
  • Portland Saturday Market is great to support local artist in Portland! In order to have a booth at the market you must make your own items in Portland! Great vendors who are all truly unique and gifted artists. Variety of crafts, art pieces, plants, health tonics, soaps, photography, jewelry, knifes, furniture, hot sauces and more! Great food vendors with music playing and Rogue brewery serving beer. Great for tourist and people visiting or even locals too. Cheers!
  • The best market, I miss going there for the food, atmosphere, and wide variety of one of a kind items. Lived across the river in Vanc. Spent at least two weekends a month at Saturday Market, so much to offer! The upper N.W. WA don't know what they're missing!
  • Great vendors & delicious food. Great for first time Portland visitors. Be careful & aware because there are large crowds and a lot of homeless people around.
  • Lots of arts and crafts. Several choices of good. Nice way to spend part of the weekend.
