Saturday Market is open both Saturdays and Sundays and runs every March through December. I usually try to make it at least three Saturdays a month and every now and then, both weekend days.  

Operating since 1974, this is the largest continually operating outdoor arts and crafts market in the nation. Located in Portland's historic Old Town, the Market is the most popular shopping destination for local handcrafted goods.

Saturday Market offers a unique opportunity for people to meet over 350 local NW artists and craftspeople who create the art they're selling. Live, local music and a plethora of exotic foods top off this remarkable Saturday and Sunday event.  


I joined Saturday Market 34 years ago, but I am only now starting my third year of participation in 2019.  The gap between year one and year two was a long one.
