Going to the Saturday Market was one of my most enjoyable experiences in Portland.  It helped that I was there on a gorgeous, sunny, and warm day (clear enough to see Mt. Hood, too!).  I loved it so much that I really wanted to go back on Sunday and just hang out in the park, but due to vacation and sight seeing, I didn't have the time. I got Mexican food from a food cart and a bubble tea from a Thai cart (both delicious).  I found a ring and a purse from the artists' tents.  Every artist (and really every person I met in Portland!) was so extremely friendly.  There was a band playing, a man walking around asking people to sign a petition to legalize marijuana, a man putting on a juggling show, lots of kids ...

wooooohooooooo!! Sensory overload!!! SOOOO many things to see, hear, touch & taste!! This is some awesome people watching territory!! You'll def come across all walks of life- 2 and 4 legged : ) I had the most AHHHHHMAZING Greek salad wrap!! Huge, fresh crispy veggies, lots of feta and a delicious tzatziki sauce. Loads of cucumber!! And dill! I asked for a little hot sauce too, which made it perfect!!! It's nice to find something so delicious- light yet filling!! And not covered or cooked in oil. I love me some deep fried shit, but having a healthy and so freakin good alternative is seriously refreshing!! The second best part was being able to wash it down with an ice cold pint- thank you rogue!! Lots of stu...

The most important takeaway from this review should be:  THIS IS NOT THE FARMER'S MARKET.  You will not find the meat, produce, or dairy products typically found at a farmer's market.  Again, this is because THIS IS NOT THE FARMER'S MARKET.  There are food vendors that sell prepared food and okay maybe there is a vendor or two that does homemade sauces and doggie treats, but if you want a farmer's market go to the one in the Park blocks down by PSU. Saturday Market (open on Sunday's too) is a great place to find eclectic gifts, local craft vendors, and a global selection of food vendors.  I highly recommend sticking to the food vendors closest to the waterfront for maximum satisfaction.  The guys on the oppo...

I never buy anything. Yeah, i'm one of "those" people. Sorry to burst your bubble, but I know quite of bit of the crafts are overpriced junk. Tye dyed t-shirts? Crazy water filled balloons on strings? Ceramic soap dispensers? I've seen it all before and I wasn't impressed the first time. I leave...

Yo if you're ever up in Portland - Don't EVER sell this place out man - Portland KNOWS how to get down on the Saturday Market tip! I swear I added a photo or Checked In! cause just like other people on Yelp (reading through some old entries as this wireless access for travelers is stalling...) I couldn't believe that this goes on through the Spring and Summer months EVERY Saturaday and Sunday...FOR REAL...this place was banging... The Greek food...well the line was long...so long I/you could play Angry Birds or something for 20 minutes...was worth it - even though I ordered the Lamb gyro and got the Chicken Gyro..it was great...we also went two stands down and got the fish & chips which were amazing...The fi...

Wow, whatta weekend. I successfully racked up enough JetBlue points to head out of town for the weekend and feeling like I had long neglected my favorite northwestern city, decided to head to Portland. Less than 2 hrs by plane, Portland is a great wknd getaway if you have a penchant for lushness in all things green nestled sweetly in an urban Of course it wouldn't be a sunny Saturday in downtown Portland without a visit to the Portland Saturday Market... this is not your garden variety swap meet, kids. There's some talent here. Homemade jewelry in just about every metal you can imagine... homemade yoga bolsters, earthy frocks, original artwork in the form of sculpture, paintings, candles, and -- the FOOD CAR...

I always hit Saturday Market when I'm in Portland. There is just no way around it. It is fun. Neat stuff, funny people, unique handmade gifts. I rarely eat at a cart here, simply because there are places nearby I'd rather go for food. But when I eat here, it's good. (A word to the wise, the Saturday Market is _supposed_ to be items hand made by the vendor/...

In a world where internet has separated us places like the Portland Saturday Market make me remember why being human is so innately unique. We dress ourselves in jewelry, wait in line to get different kinds of food and we are all so unique... yet the same. DON'T go on too sunny of a Saturday, because you will be pushed around by people, rolled over by mothers with a mission and wait for hours to get a gyros. DO go and enjoy the people. There is such a wide variety of Portland Types; the guy with the long dreadlocks who drums on plastic buckets, the older scruffy man who dresses like Elvis- epitomizes that oddness about Portland. The day I went he was welcomed into playing with the band that was on stage, and...

Saturday Market begins under the Burnside bridge. My friends and I commenced to walk through all the aisles oohing and ahhing in front of all the soap booths and touched the things that don't break. We almost b...

I love the Saturday Market. I like seeing how creative people can be, the music being played by the fountain, and the food. My god, the FOOD!! I'm normally not one for crowds as I have an extreme objection to getting accidentally felt up by people I can't identify. How do I know who to thank? However, I do have a few objections. (1) The stroller brigade. Okay, I love children, and I think that giving birth is probably a very powerful experience. However, I don't understand these people with their strollers who zip through the aisles, shoving people out of the way with their mini-me. I know I didn't suffer through morning sickness, or have a small bowling ball growing near my no-no spot, but that doesn't mean...
