Know Before You Go
The Portland Saturday Market has resumed for its 48th season on Saturdays only, with 150 vendors and increased distance between each booth. You can also find many of the market’s artists and goods at Portland Saturday Market’s online store.
Combining the vibes of an arts show, a live street concert and an open-air bazaar, Portland Saturday Market has been a beloved Rose City tradition since 1974. In fact, the market is considered the largest continually operating arts-and-crafts fair in the United States, drawing up to 750,000 visitors during its annual season.
On any given Saturday from the beginning of March to the day before Christmas, shoppers can tap their heels to bluegrass pickers and jazz musicians and sample ethnic eats like falafel or kielbasa while browsing wares handcrafted by more than 250 vendors. Top finds include Closed Loop Woodworks‘ Oregon-shaped cutting boards made from reclaimed wood, silverware art by Spoonman Creations, twee illustrations from A Little Sun and delicate metal-and-gemstone jewelry hand crafted with guitar string from Bluce Designs as well as locally themed apparel, ceramics, home décor and photography.
