Shop local artisans’ wares at the Saturday Market
Operating since 1974, the Portland Saturday Market
is the largest continually operating outdoor arts and crafts market in the nation. And when we say large, it spans several city blocks, crosses a couple of streets, and heads down the westside waterfront. You'll find everything you need in terms of weird and wacky souvenirs, gorgeous art to adorn your walls, and whatever else the amazing artists of the market come up with.
Pick your fresh produce at PSU’s enormous farmer’s market
Spend a sunny Saturday morning prepping for the best salad lunch of your life. Pick up some of the best fresh produce you'll find in the world, plus flower bouquets, food, honey, and so much more at the Portland State University open-air Farmer's Market
. Plus, there's usually live music and plenty of places to sit and enjoy your morning. When you're done, take a two-block walk to the Portland Art Museum
, stroll down the Park blocks, and see what other trouble you can get into.
