I enjoyed the Market more than I expected, there were loads of vendors with unique local-type merch. Some crap too, but more good stuff than bad! There were people selling duct-tape wallets, spoon art, fresh jams, photos, polished river rocks and more! Worth the search for a parking spot!

I just returned home for a weekend and had took out of town family here. This truley gives you a picture of Portland culture! Everything from fine artisan gifts, true craftsmanship, cheap trinkets, funny t-shirts, and food galore! And the people are as diverse as the items sold; hippies, middle class, college students, etc. The food is amazing, tons of ethnic choices, I love dona lola's mexican pupusas, amazing!! This is beautiful during the summer and right across from water front park.

I just adore Saturday Market. There is soooo much to do. And so many things to eat!!! Everyone is so friendly and there are hippies everywhere. Theres always free entertainment (tips appreciated) from starving musicians to clowns and face painters. It's open Sat and Sun which is convienant since I always worked on Saturdays. Things are a little pricey but there is one artist who has a booth there that I love. His name is Daniel Work and his paintings are so lovely you must check them out. And very reasonably priced they normally run $$$ 10.00-20.00. If you are ever in the Portland area you really must stop by it is my favorite place in portland.

The Portland Saturday Market has been operating for over 20 years downtown under the Burnside Bridge and vicinity. Open March through December, the open air marketplace (which is also open on Sundays) overs all manner of arts and crafts from clothing, jewelry, pottery and much more. It's a great place to find a unique handmade item to give as a gift.

PROS: food vendors available and located right on MAX line
CONS: during summer it can get hot and crowded

I went to the Saturday Market (stopped in at the Skidmore Market first, which is across the street) last weekend and had a great time browsing the many vendors. I got cloths- even some made by local designers, handmade jewerly and handmade soap. The live music was kicken! There are many food vendors to choose from, but I only got a smoothie since I already had lunch. I was last there about 4 or 5 years ago and the market has gotten bigger since then. Part of the market is under a bridge and part indoor and then some of it on the other side of the building.

Pros: on Max lightrail line, lots of local talent

Cons: needs an all vegan/vegetarian food booth

First time I have been to this place and it was interesting due to the items it displayed for the shopping. Most of the items are not avilable in most of the stores.You will get different hand made items like pintings,stones,wood items and toys.

The Portland Saturday Market is the place to visit. Bring the whole family and plan to spend the day shopping, socializing, listening to great music and eating fabulous food.
This is an outdoor market place filled with vendors from all over with wonderful unique hand crafted items, pottery, jewelry, clothing and so much more. Your sure to find something for everyone. They have two food courts with the most wonderful smells and aromas coming from them that its hard to decide what you would like to try. They have a fantastic farmers market too with the freshest produce. This is an experience you just can't pass up.

The Portland Saturday Market (open on Sunday as well) definitely has something for everyone. They have live music, lots of vendors selling anything you can imagine, and two wonderful food courts. You can walk around for hours looking at all the handcrafted items for sale. If you are looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for person; you have come to the right place! Wear comfortable shoes and bring cash, because most transactions are made in cash only. (Most vendors do not have credit/debit machines set up.) Plan to have lunch there. You will definitely want to after smelling all the delicious food!

Outdoors and fairly sizable, this handicrafts market, located under a bridge in Old Town (one of Portland's problem areas), is essentially a collection of vendors with various trinkets along with a few others selling items such as burgers and hot dogs. For this sort of thing it's OK, but don't be expecting anything like a farmer's market (which is located at Portland State University on Saturday's), let alone Seattle's Pike Market.

This is a great place to go down and shop at. They have unique items that people have homemade and things that are unusual.

The only thing you have to be careful of is to watch your stuff cause its right out in the open and people can easily steal from you.

Its right along the river so you can take a walk along the river and enjoy the day as you are shopping. They also have places to eat out there and the food is pretty good.

Its located right along the public transportation line (MAX) so if you are not wanting to drive down there jump on the max and you get off right in front of the saturday market!

The thing I like best about Saturday Market is that all kinds of people go there. I also like the broad range of handcrafted items that are available, and the fact that you meet the artist as you buy them. I bought gifts for my bridesmaids there, and was able to get something unique that fit each person's personality. You can browse, get something to eat, listen to live music, and then browse some more!

PROS: you won't get bored
CONS: you'll probably spend more than you want to

The saturday market is so wonderful. Yes it is a bit of a hippie festival, but it is so much fun. They have an insane amount of yummy places to eat, and lots of little vendor booths to buy all sorts of odds and ends from. T shirts stickers, lawn trinkets, baby clothing you name it they have it. There are all sorts of sidewalk entertainers from majic, to music and a living statue. My sons favorite are the guys who make the twisty balloon animals. Parking is difficult in the area as well as expensive so we always take the max transit down. The saturday market is also open on sundays too and right next to waterfront park.

Portland's Saturday Market can hardly be described in words. It's an adventure to go, as every Portlander should from time to time. If you've got company visiting, it's a great place. There is a ton of homemade crafty stuff: lots of photography, jewelry, and stuff made out of wood. It's a great place to pick up an ecclectic present for the person who has everything or someone you don't know very well. There's truly something for everyone. Lots of good food & drink, so come hungry.

PROS: Unique Portland experience. Lots to do & see. Fun to shop or just browse.
CONS: Difficult to park if you don't know your way around. Take Max if you can.

I love the Saturday Market (it's on Sundays, too)--it has a lot of Oregon-made products from local artists and craftspeople, and it has a variety of foods from all over the world! The live entertainment has everything from bellydancing to drum bands--great eclectic fun!

If youre looking for a unique gift, head to the Saturday Market. From pottery to jewelry, you're bound to find something. Youre also supporting local artisans. Whoo hoo! The gyros here are yummy, too. The stand in front of the Skidmore Fountain has HUGE, yummy gyros.

I love the Portland Satruday Market. You can shop, people watch, get good eats, and be outside! I like to bring people from out of town here, as it's a good slice of Portland. It's right on the MAX line, too.
They have great deals on local crafts and art!

The Portland Saturday Market has something for everyone, and a vibe that you can only experience in the great Northwest! This outdoor market is right on the bank of the Willamette River, and combines the feel of a beachy boardwalk with skaters and drum circles, and a farmer's market jam packed with fresh fruits and foods, and even crafts, clothing, and jewelry! The atmosphere draws you in with the sensual aromas of exotic foods. Whether you are a local, or a visitor from afar, don't miss out on the ambiance of the Portland Saturday Market!

PROS: Wonderful atmosphere, great vibes, awesome food
CONS: Outdoors, no fun when raining!

This is a great place to go and spend some time with family and friends. There is always activity happening down at the Market and it is fun to casually meander through the stands and look at all of the items. I have never bought anything down there, but the atmosphere is worth the trip. Food can be good, if you hit the right stand.

I dont think ive ever bought anything at the PSM, but thats not saying i wouldnt. Theres some really great stuff, and some really creative people hanging around. Sure, some people complain of its "carni-esque" nature, but hey, ive never had a problem with funnel cakes. There is some tasty food down there too, you just have to find it. Avoid the norms and eat something you havnt had before.. might surprise ya.

Whenever we go to the Portland Saturday Market, we make sure to get their ice cream. It is hand made by a local company called "Great Northwest Ice Cream", and it's the best we've ever had. If you have any doubts, just look around. It seems as though EVERYONE has ice cream. If it's a sunny day, you should plan on at least a half hour wait, since the line is so long. But it's worth waiting for and the servings are huge. Besides, it's right next to the stage, so you can enjoy the entertainment while you wait. Oh, and one additional thing. The servings are huge! It's yummy!!!

Every year I yearn for fall when the Vegetarian Chili is served. It is so awesome. It comes hot and steamy with a side of yummy grainy bread. Pair it with the hot cider and for desert, you have GOT to try the cheesecake and the shortbread from the booth next door. Absolutly the best way to warm up after a day of cold shopping- trust me- I worked a booth for 4 years every Christmas! (and don't miss elvis)

maybe mr. baggins (review below) just needs to get used to portland. saturday market is an institution that is entertaining, full of interesting hand made things (under the bridge), with lots of restaurants in the vicinity (if you don't like the food that is vended). not to mention waterfont park across the street. great people watching, friendly atmosphere. i think it's a great place to spend a sunny saturday or sunday afternoon. oh well, some people just don't get it. live here long enough and you will.

I just relocated here and had heard from a co-worker how great the Portland Saturday Market was- so I checked it out.
I expected a farmers market with some local crafts but dodged panhandlers and street performers to walk like sheep looking at pottery.
Pretty much a whole lot of nothing I would ever need. Very disapponted. I was hungry but when I saw the grease pits that food was being prepared in I decided to pass.

What a great way to support Portland by stopping in and grazing by all the colorful trinkets and crafty pleasures! There is something for everyone from the romantic candles to the summer attire, how easily it is to blend in and feel welcome with retailer smiles and simply wonderful vendor foods that make even the most pretentious eater want to give in and sneak a plate, with music usually near-by, a great place to have an afternoon ale and watch the kids get down and do a little Portland Boogie!

I find little good about Portland Sat Market. I've been 8-10 times in the past 2 years toating guests there and have yet to see any one of us buy more than a $3 bar of natural soap.
Basically next to a gaggle of homeless, the fattiest unhealthiest food you can imagine and a flea market.
Yes, there are some local artisans with some neat merchandise- but after those 3 vendors you are surrounded by junk.
Why Portlanders loce so much, I'll never know.
Get rid of the food court and bring in a farmers market, there a good idea.

PSM isn't something you'll want to do every weekend, but it is fun to bring visitors there. Last year when I first moved up I mush have brought 7 or 8 sets of friends to the Market. Fun for me for the first time. After that you realize there is nothing new or changing about it. For the most part it is 1/2 flea market, 1/2 local craft artists. Nothing fancy and sometimes a little filthy. My girlfriend went once and said, that is plent for me thanks. Not for everyone, but if you have a hippie friend perfect. The food is, well undesirable. All typical carnival food. Elephant ears, hot dogs, etc... Typical high in fat, low in nutrition junk food that will clog your artieries. Fun for tourists, but they need to add a true market of local fruits & veggies in order to capture regular local crowd.

I enjoyed the Market more than I expected, there were loads of vendors with unique local-type merch. Some crap too, but more good stuff than bad! There were people selling duct-tape wallets, spoon art, fresh jams, photos, polished river rocks and more! Worth the search for a parking spot!

Cons: Outdoors, Varying open times, No parking

Fun way to spend your weekend, whether you're just browsing and people watching or shopping for a unique gift. I've found some excellent pottery here by local artists; it's one of my favorite places to shop around the holidays (when the hours are extended). Lots of food carts, free music and entertainment. A nice (and free) family outing. On-street parking can be tough to find, though.
