Dog Days of Summer

The hottest days of the year are just around the corner. Here at the Market we have just the thing for you and your pet. Ã‚ From fountains to food and from treats to treasures, the Portland Saturday Market has what you are looking for to stay cool (and hip).


For the four-legged friend in your life, we have two fountains from which to choose (plus plush green grass in Waterfront Park for chasing any number of toys). The Skidmore Fountain is Portland's oldest public work of art and is a wonderful place for your pup to get a drink of water. We also have the Bill Naito Legacy fountain in Waterfront Park. As Portland's newest water feature, this is a wonderful place for you and your hound to splash up a storm.  Since this fountain is chlorinated please remember this is not the water for your dog to drink.


BBQ DOGS…One can't leave the Market without sampling something from our international food court. My Brother's Famous BBQ has been serving up the best in BBQ since 1979. They also have snow cones for the little ones in the family.

SNOOK'S PET PRODUCTS (Booth #806)...If it is pet treats you are looking for then the Market has what you want. Snook's Pet products have been at the Market since 2001. These organic sweet potato dog chews are healthy and perfect for removing tarter build up on your dog's teeth.


LARKSTUDIO (Booth#343)
Treasures abound at the Market. Want to capture your pet's best expression; then Lark Studio is the place for you. Since 1994 Dottie has been doing custom paintings of your family's favorite friend. Don't have a pet of your own but, you're an animal lover then she has originals, reproductions, pendants and zipper pulls for you to choose from.

Visit the Portland Saturday Market every weekend March- Christmas Eve. Sat 10-5 and Sunday 11- 4:30

    The Saturday Market is the place you take friends,relatives and out of towners so they can grasp their mind around whats really goin down in Pdx. Keep it Local, Keep it Green, It it Movin’ and Keep It Pimpin.

    Some of the best arts, crafts, food and entertainment have spawned from the original Saturday Market. It’s a great launch pad for local businesses. I’d enjoy 25 bones to put right back in to our community.

    Portland Saturday Market represents quintessential Portland to me. When I first moved to this city back in 2001, PSM was my way of really connecting with the city. From their location, I was able to spoke out to get to know the rest of the city – it gives me a center. Portland Saturday Market interacted with all 5 senses giving me a starting point to understand this beautiful city I’ve grown to love. Without PSM, I feel like Portland loses its heart.

    The Portland Saturday Market is a weekly tradition for us! I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning then biking to the Farmers Market, then over to the Saturday Market to shop, drink a Dead Guy and people watch. Always plenty of smiling Portlanders out and enjoying themselves. Good times, good people and great vendors.

    Gift card or not, I know where I’ll be this Saturday!

  6. Sara July 21, 2010 at 1:40 pm #

    Awe the Sat. Market! Where else can you buy frozen cheesecake on a stick, fruity bath soaps, and hand-knitted hats, while listening to folk/rock all in the beautiful Portland weather?

  7. michelle young July 21, 2010 at 1:44 pm #

    We love supporting the local organic growers and cheese makers.

  8. Judy Adair July 21, 2010 at 2:33 pm #

    Haven’t been to Saturday Market in years, would love a reason to head down there!

  9. Darci July 21, 2010 at 2:47 pm #

    It’s a good place to buy things I don’t need and do some people watching. There is a lot of good people watching to be done. Thank you Saturday market for the free entertainment!

  10. Cynthia Liz Lopez July 21, 2010 at 3:03 pm #

    I want to win the $25 gift card to Saturday Market because of several reasons:
    1) I work a non-profit job and therefore live on a non-profit salary- ANY free food is always a blessing!
    2) I’ve lived in PDX for two years and have still not gone to a Saturday Market! This would give me the ultimate reason to go!
    3) PDX Pipeline is pretty bad ass!


  11. Brett July 21, 2010 at 3:31 pm #

    frozen, chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick…

  12. Stephi July 21, 2010 at 4:03 pm #

    I would love to have a shopping spree at saturday market, I love supporting local art and haven’t been to the market in forever.

  13. Ben July 21, 2010 at 11:19 pm #

    I want to buy $25 of elephant ears.

  14. ruth July 22, 2010 at 1:29 am #

    Ok, so I didnt get the brewers festival pack, or tickets to see the hold steady. Could I please have a gift card to the place I have been going for over 16 years????????I havent been since they moved it though just because the thought of them changing somethin that I have seen a certain way for years kind of bothers me.

  15. heather July 22, 2010 at 9:37 am #

    I haven’t been to Saturday Market since they renovated the buildings down near Skidmore Fountain. I’d love to see how it all turned out.

  16. Kathleen July 22, 2010 at 10:02 am #

    There is a cute clothing booth I have always wanted to buy something from but I have cut back on spending money on eating out and clothes.

  17. Kim D July 22, 2010 at 4:22 pm #

    We love supporting the local art scene and want portraits of our pets

  18. darwinsbulldog July 22, 2010 at 4:25 pm #

    Enter me please!

  19. brett feldman July 22, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    Saturday market is always a great place to go on weekends! Love all the stuff most ppl would call trash turned into great pieces of art!

  20. Darcy B July 22, 2010 at 4:33 pm #

    Yes please, I love the Farmers market! If I win I’m going to spend it all on baked goods!! So many tasty treats that I’ve been trying to fit in my budget!!

  21. Angel July 22, 2010 at 4:45 pm #

    If you give me the $25 saturday market certificate, I will take miniature weiner dog Anya downt there to get something fun. Please help me help her… she really really likes the market. She’d tell you that herself, if she could talk. Since she can’t though you’ll have to take my word for it.

  22. shane July 22, 2010 at 4:49 pm #

    I heard it might be the last weekend to buy morels and I’ve been cooking them with fava beans every weekend for a while. I need to get my mushroom fix!!!

  23. Mary S. July 22, 2010 at 4:53 pm #

    I’d love $25 to spend at the Saturday Market! Haven’t gone this year yet – my parents from the midwest will be in town and the three of us have a tight budget.. anything I can contribute to make their impression of Portland a bit more rad would be wonderful! Maybe I’d be able to treat them to something from Kathmandu to You (first time for Nepalese food!) and buy them a little something local to take back with them :)

  24. Suzan July 22, 2010 at 5:06 pm #

    I get my favorite olive oil there … it’s light and fresh. Haven’t been this year yet to restock.

  25. Jenn July 22, 2010 at 5:16 pm #

    Who doesn’t love the Market?? Yummy food, quirky clothes, great pottery and delicious soaps! It’s my go-to place for house warming gifts!

  26. Alyssa July 22, 2010 at 5:17 pm #

    I just moved to a house and there is this woman who makes garden art that my boyfriend and I love. We don’t have the money to spend on her art though. Would love to win this gift card to use towards her booth.

  27. MsD July 22, 2010 at 5:19 pm #

    Keepin it local in PDX – love helping to sustain a local economy and eat great food at the same time. Hit me!

  28. Jaime July 22, 2010 at 5:22 pm #

    This would give me a good excuse to buy more art there :)

  29. melanie July 22, 2010 at 5:37 pm #

    We love the market and enjoy taking Anna Freud, our black lab therapy dog. :) I bet she’d love to sit for a portrait.

  30. Dave July 22, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    I’d love to buy garden gnomes of my family at the Saturday Market. The guy who makes them does a great job!

  31. Michelle July 22, 2010 at 5:42 pm #

    I would like to buy one of those cute hand made purses.

  32. Benjamin July 22, 2010 at 5:44 pm #

    To be honest, I would just use this to eat and drink. Last time I was there my friends and I were kicked out of the food court for drunken hacky sacking. Lame.

  33. Miranda July 22, 2010 at 5:47 pm #

    I consider my parents friends, relatives, *and* out of towners – they will be visiting in Sept. and I plan to load them up with as much local flavor as I can afford. Another $25 for the Market would be swell!

  34. Sarah July 22, 2010 at 5:52 pm #

    just recently moved from Michigan and i want to get a Jaysan Art piece to hang on my walls!

  35. Holly July 22, 2010 at 6:00 pm #

    Please Please Pleas… :) I love the Saturday market. I would buy a ton of yummy cart food and then some neat knick knacks for my house!

  36. Deena Anreise July 22, 2010 at 6:11 pm #

    We are always there, spending money anyways… why not get a little kickback so that we can justify some bigger, long sought after purchases.

  37. pdxmelinda July 22, 2010 at 6:13 pm #

    I would like the gift certificate to buy something sparkly for me. My daughter is 21 and in school. Whenever I seem to have a few extra dollars, they seem to still go for jeans, shoes, and underwear. Underwear is expensive! Then, there’s the food at Saturday Market. I could see myself eating most of the gift certificate and buying something sparkly too. At this point I envision myself with probably another $25 in art that I have to have and pay for, above and beyond the gift certificate. This is not an altruistic answer but an honest one, indeed. Thanks!

  38. Nicole July 22, 2010 at 6:32 pm #

    what?! i would get my grub on. i could probably make $25 last the rest of the summer. awesome!

  39. Erika July 22, 2010 at 6:32 pm #

    I’m a broke-a$$ teacher with good intentions and a desire to support the local economy. A hand-engraved “TEACHER” sign would look pretty cool in my classroom too.

  40. Alyssa July 22, 2010 at 6:36 pm #

    I love Saturday Market, and will probably go whether I have money or not just to see everything. But of course, money would be nice.

  41. Andrea K. July 22, 2010 at 6:48 pm #

    I love the diverse art pieces at the Saturday market and the variety of goods. It is great that so many artists are able to share their works with the public. I look forward to returning soon!

  42. Ashleigh July 22, 2010 at 6:48 pm #

    I LOVE the Saturday Market! I haven’t been in a couple years though because I was living in Corvallis, but now I’m back in the area and could use some extra money for the market, buy something funky and unique for my new house. :)

  43. ViolaRose July 22, 2010 at 6:54 pm #

    wow $25 bucks! awesome
    I really want a spoon and fork chime from the crazy spoon guy!

  44. casey July 22, 2010 at 6:58 pm #

    I am a grad student studying the artisan economy and all the great things small, local, maker-culture businesses can do to strengthen our economy. Artisanship is the future! The success of the Saturday Market makes this quite apparent. I know there is a man who makes beautiful leather purses and sells them there…i want one! I was also hoping I might find a particular kind of butter dish I’ve been looking for.

  45. BziLzi July 22, 2010 at 7:21 pm #

    If I am lucky, when I die, the place I am going will look something like PFM…maybe more consistently sunny.

  46. Jen S July 22, 2010 at 7:46 pm #

    I love markets and local artists, crafters, growers, makers and more. I love the joy of knowing where all my goods are coming from and many handmade! Items likes these are perfect gifts and one of a kind deals. So sad it can’t be a year round thing like the old markets I used to go to in Ca. PDX has it’s own unique flare that is unlike any other.

  47. Chris July 22, 2010 at 7:50 pm #

    My husband’s birthday is in 19 days and I bet I could find something unique for him there!

  48. J July 22, 2010 at 7:52 pm #

    I love the street performers and the food.

  49. Bret July 22, 2010 at 8:35 pm #

    I want to win because I’m a broke grad student.

  50. Stacia July 22, 2010 at 8:35 pm #

    I have been to Saturday Market three times this summer and have taken three different friends to spend money. You give me $25 gift card and I will spend another $25 of my own to help support local business/arts : )

  51. Peter Koonce July 22, 2010 at 9:02 pm #

    I love the market and would buy some bicycle jewelry.

  52. Mary Diehl July 22, 2010 at 9:18 pm #

    The Saturday Market is great! I especially like going there on Sunday :D

  53. Tina July 22, 2010 at 9:52 pm #

    I’ve lived in Portland for over two years and have never been to Saturday market! I haven’t spent money on myself since before I was pregnant with my now 4 month old son–I’d love to buy something for myself for a change!

  54. Sheri Holan July 22, 2010 at 9:54 pm #

    My dog needs some more sweet potato chews! :-)

  55. free July 22, 2010 at 10:10 pm #

    good food + good art = me + saturday market

  56. amanda July 22, 2010 at 10:17 pm #

    I want to get a new bag or a piece of jewelry for myself for my 25th birthday! :D

  57. Annette S July 22, 2010 at 10:18 pm #

    I just love to support local artists! And a $25 gift card would to a long way to helping me do that.

  58. Kelli July 22, 2010 at 10:56 pm #

    No matter how many times I go, I never tire of this wonderful piece of Portland… my wallet, on the other hand, might have a few objections.

  59. Snapper July 22, 2010 at 10:57 pm #

    I heart the farmers market!!!

  60. Kathy July 22, 2010 at 11:20 pm #

    What could be better than supporting local artists, showing off the best of Portland to my out of town guests, and procrastinating studying for my exams? Pick me!

  61. Alex July 23, 2010 at 12:51 am #

    Portland Saturday market has awesome food and cool shit to look at, and has the best people watching.

  62. daVe July 23, 2010 at 12:55 am #

    saturday, it’s a saturday…market. you’ve been gone too long, miss saturday market. i miss you’re food, crafts and charm. let’s get back together.

  63. Rob W July 23, 2010 at 1:18 am #

    because it’s almost as good as the Eugene Sat Mkt !!

  64. Brittany July 23, 2010 at 6:22 am #

    I have never bought anything at the Saturday Market, well I’ve only been there once, but I’m more likely to spend your money! :)

  65. adam edwards July 23, 2010 at 7:11 am #

    only way my wife will let me go ;o)

  66. Lesley July 23, 2010 at 7:15 am #

    Doesn’t get any more Portland than the Saturday Market, I would love to take my daughter down there this weekend for her very first time… great food, arts, and of course people watching! Cool down in the fountain from the sun!! She’d love it! Saturday market is one of my favorite things about Portland!

  67. Michelle July 23, 2010 at 7:37 am #

    Saturday Market is part of what makes Portland…. well, Portland! I love the chance to meet and interact with the artists. I like how you can have a great time in your hometown supporting local artisans and finding hunting for the perfect gift.

  68. Barb July 23, 2010 at 8:07 am #

    I would use this as “seed” money for my trip to the Saturday Market. Once I got there I would not be able to contain myself and I would spend oh so much more on all the of the fines wares available! Yeah Saturday Market!

  69. Hope July 23, 2010 at 8:50 am #

    This weekend will be our first wedding anniversary..and it would be fun to bike down to the Saturday Market and spend the day there!

  70. Stacey July 23, 2010 at 9:20 am #

    My cat would spin like a top with $25 worth of Kitty Hooch. I’d love to win the gc!

  71. Mona July 23, 2010 at 9:23 am #

    The Portland Market is the BEST, would go every day if I could, especially if I had a Gift Card :)

  72. Sara July 23, 2010 at 9:28 am #

    I’d love to win the gift card because I’m broke and my apartment decor is suffering as a result!

  73. Brandy July 23, 2010 at 9:42 am #

    On a hot day, there’s nothing like a cold beer, a local band and a plethora of Oregon art to get you jump started…Thanks, Saturday Market, for always being a good choice!

  74. Diane July 23, 2010 at 9:51 am #

    Saturday Market creates lifetime memories. I have a handmade cabinet an artist made me from the Saturday Market 25 years ago, and it’s still beautiful!

  75. Scott July 23, 2010 at 10:18 am #

    Our one year old carrin has never been to the Saturday market. She would love it, along with her owners!

  76. Anna July 23, 2010 at 10:19 am #

    Remember they don’t want dogs at the farmers markets!

  77. Jenn C. July 23, 2010 at 10:44 am #

    heart IT! Last time we went we bought some art, I would love more!

  78. Joshua G July 23, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    I make a habit of hitting the farmer’s market every Saturday to catch a delicious breakfast snack (I’m a fan of the breakfast burritos) and pad out my collection of produce for the week!
