    Portland Saturday Market is always fun to explore on the weekends on the waterfront. You can find food, little trinkets, clothes, jewelry, and almost everything else. You'll see a lot of hipsters around but it's Portland, of course. It's a fun place to hang out and people-watch too! Things aren't always cheap, but it's fun to "window-shop."

    Wow, what fun! This market is very Portland! All kinds of vendors that specialize in everything from making hats to little machines that turn virtually anything into a speaker. Down by the river you can take in a nice view while you enjoy treats from the food carts!

    Maybe I'm just cynical, but how many of the same pieces of '70s pottery can one own? Found this market redundant. Nothing new and exciting.

    Saturday Market has long been a favorite tourist attraction and special stop for locals, and for good reason - there are dozens (if not hundreds) of stalls of arts, crafts, food items, clothes, jewelry, knick-knacks, and anything else you can imagine - much of it one-of-a-kind and also somehow very Portland - lining alley after alley under the cover of the bridge. It's also great for people watching, catching sight of a street performer or two, and, if you're willing to pay a little extra, eating from a stand.

    A longtime Portland institution, the Saturday Market (also ope on Sundays) is great place to pick up one-of-a-kind handcrafted items from local artists. Here you'll find everything from paintings of nature scenes to hand-stitched hoodies, as well as soaps, jewelry, and tie-dyed everything. Don't forget to sample the "elephant ears," fried flatbread dusted with cinnamon and sugar.

    Hard to walk through without buying anything. Lots of great artists and fun things to see. Bring your own bags and some cash!

    I really enjoy the Portland Saturday (and Sunday) market when I'm in town. I especially like the arts and crafts booths that are closer to the bridge. Several years ago I bought a nice door harp that is still decoratively next to my front door. Recent discoveries include a woman who sells some really nice hand sewn notebooks, Duncan's Woods boxes, Colton Forge blacksmithing products, and more.....

    Experience the craftsmanship of Portland. Small booths of local craftsmen selling their wares with an eclectic mix of art, useful knick-knacks and practical household items. Great food carts too.

    You can definitely find a little bit of everything here!

    It's a bit of a farmers market and flea market all in one. From hipster to quirky they've got it all.

    food
    beer vendors
    local artists
    homemade jewelry
    screen printed shirts
    mustaches, feathers, and wood

    TIP: great spot for people watching! "Keep Portland Weird"

    The Saturday Market is allright. The problem with Portland is though that since it rains a good portion of the year, it gets kind of crappy to be outside and shop when it's raining, especially in an open air market. Good selection of arts and crafts though.

    I visited this during the Rose Festival and it was absolutely packed! There's not a whole lot of "amazing food" here but theres tonnes to talk around and absorb. Great walk for families and within the vicinity of Voodoo too!
