Cool place but bad city. Won't be going again. Dirty, trashy city- not safe after dark. We prefer Seaside and the coast to I-5 corridor.

I love going to Portland Saturday Market there is such a nostalgia for me. Being born and raised in Portland it is definitely something I love doing now and then as it truly gives of the spirit of Portland. Even if it's just to peruse and walk around, it's always fun. The trash could use some attention but... What's new lol
Lots of different booths. Food, clothes, jewellery, home decor you find it all. Great vibe and music. Paid parking on the streets and parking lots nearby. Tried Mangonada for the first time, would definitely recommend.
Good variety of booths, parking nearby. The sewer smell by the food carts was a bit much. The drum circle was by far my favorite part!
The shop choices are pretty diverse, my personal favorites were the resold tour shirts (the owner of the spot is kinda loony, but in a super fun way. Wish I could have spent $1000 here on hidden gem shirts. A must see if you’re at the market.) and a self made perfume business (forget the business name, look for black tables and very little marketing). Other than those 2, everything else was okay in my opinion when it comes to shopping options, but the area right in the river is beautiful and a fun experience. Plenty of food choices in the area as well.
Such a fun way to spend your Saturday! There are tons of booths to checkout and the booths have a huge variety of things to look at. Sometimes I feel like outdoor Markets just sell you dips, spices and knives. The Portland market has a huge variety of art, jewelry, dips and spices. 😜 I also enjoyed the variety of food vendors: North African food, pretzels, polish food. It was all over the place and it was so hard to decide on one. Most importantly their were a good amount of port a potties and surprisingly they were really clean. I’m not sure if they are always super clean but they were the day I visited. A great place for peeps with kids, dogs or to just go by yourself.
