    If I get a gift card I’ll actually be able to buy my family some gifts, pick me!

    My niece goes to Portland often for work. She loves to shop.
    This would be a great gift.

  3. Sara November 30, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    I am a frequent supporter of Portland Saturday Market and would love to do my holiday shopping there!

  4. Jessie Sheeran November 30, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

    I LOVE Saturday Market in the summertime, but rarely venture to it in the wet winter. A gift card would give me the kick in the butt I need! :)

  5. Mollie November 30, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    Shop local & support our local crafters. Win/win!

  6. Jaime November 30, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    I would love to get this card! I spend so much money at the Saturday Market as is, this would really help! I already know what I spend it on too! The wire jewelry would make a great gift for my mom :)

  7. Luke November 30, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    I love the market. You will find things there you wont find in stores. I also like the variety of food vendors and a excuse to leave the Reed neighborhood and head downtown.

  8. Aaronson November 30, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

    Here are the top 5 reasons I’d like to win this:
    5. I’m broke
    4. My friends will get actual presents instead of handmade art projects.
    3. It will get me out of my house instead of playing XBOX 24/7
    2. I’ll get to see live music, people breakdancing, and probably that gray guy with the balls.
    And the number 1 reason I’d like to win this…

  9. Jenifer November 30, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    I would LOVE to win as this Christmas is tight for us (as it is with most people) in the last month and a half we’ve had two massive car repair bills, and this would help. A lot- especially since we have two kiddos who LOVE Saturday Market!

  10. Jon November 30, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

    I want to attend the festival of the last minute because there are some great things and toys that my 3yr old twin boys would love to have for Christmas!

  11. Star Truong November 30, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

    I <3 the Saturday Market! Great food, music, entertainment; all on TOP of spectacular things to browse and buy!

  12. Keri November 30, 2012 at 12:57 pm #

    It would let me buy at least one person a Christmas present that I can’t afford

  13. angela November 30, 2012 at 1:10 pm #

    This would make for a great gift for a family in need that would otherwise go without!

  14. Erika November 30, 2012 at 1:32 pm #

    I’ve been a procrastinator all my life… And the Saturday Market is always a blast :)

  15. ian November 30, 2012 at 2:18 pm #

    this would help me a lot this xmas season!!

  16. Alethea November 30, 2012 at 3:07 pm #

    I don’t like to shop but I love supporting local artists & businesses. This would be a great way to pick up some gifts for my loved ones!

  17. Sirenna November 30, 2012 at 8:34 pm #

    I’m buying as much local as I can for the holidays. I’d love to have the opportunity to get a little help with it :)

  18. Glenn November 30, 2012 at 10:15 pm #

    Would love to win this and help support the great people at the market, I can’t really afford to go and shop the local artists and this would be great!

  19. Sean December 1, 2012 at 8:41 am #

    Love the Saturday market – especially every day!

  20. Karen December 1, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

    This would be so great to win, especially because I spent most of my gift money on losing Powerball tickets.

  21. Melissa December 1, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

    Supporting local for the holidays!

  22. Kim c December 1, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    Just sold our house from where we live before we relocated to Portland in July and hoping to get gifts from the Saturday market for all our family back east but on a super tight budget. U know how the housing market is..

  23. Karen December 1, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

    I Love the hand made items that can be found at Saturday Market. Christmas is SO commercialized anymore and to me, handmade/homemade is much more personal to give. This will be the 1st Christmas without my Dad who passed in June, and I am looking for a keepsake in his honor. I am sure I can find something at the market with all the different things and the gift card would be awesome to help me purchase this special item.

  24. Stormgirl F December 2, 2012 at 8:28 am #

    Handcrafted items are the best, and supporting small local businesses supports the people I like and want to support!

  25. Jesse December 2, 2012 at 8:57 am #

    I love Portland, I love saturdays, I love markets, I love festivals, I love the last minute! This is like some kind of harmonic/drum circle convergence; sign me up.

  26. Roshelle Hall December 2, 2012 at 1:00 pm #

    The Saturday Market is great and I have going since I was a kid. I think it’s very important to shop local.

  27. Christine December 2, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    I’d love to buy my family handcrafted gifts!

  28. Dennis December 2, 2012 at 1:13 pm #

    I love the Saturday Market, would love more of an excuse to go again soon!

  29. Frankie December 2, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    I want some hot and fresh cooked goods at the market!

  30. Raymond December 2, 2012 at 7:34 pm #

    Like to find something from the northwest.
    To give as a gift for family thats coming from new Orleans. They need a uplift from there flooded area.

  31. Nate December 2, 2012 at 9:23 pm #

    I love last minute!

  32. Verity Pang December 2, 2012 at 11:26 pm #

    This is the first Christmas I won’t be able to spend with any family. But my friends are taking me in this year, so I would like to get them something appreciative!

  33. Sarah W. December 3, 2012 at 9:40 am #

    I love the Saturday Market, but I never get to go since I always work weekends! :(

  34. Cara December 3, 2012 at 11:13 am #

    I would love to attend this festival to find beautiful unique hand crafted gifts to give to my loved ones for Christmas!!

  35. Roya December 3, 2012 at 3:15 pm #

    love supporting local businesses!

  36. Lindsay December 4, 2012 at 11:34 am #

    Ohhh! I would love a giftcard so I can support my local crafters and artists WHILE gifting to my family and friends

  37. Lisa December 4, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    I’m broke yet commited to giving local gifts – not an easy combo.

  38. Heather December 4, 2012 at 12:43 pm #

    This is a great idea!!

  39. Rachel December 4, 2012 at 3:53 pm #

    This is amazing! Love PDX!

  40. Amy Spears December 4, 2012 at 11:03 pm #

    I am pretty broke right now but my mom deserves something nice. Would be really helpful and we both love Saturday Market’s hand made crafts.

  41. Christina December 7, 2012 at 6:49 am #

    Can it really be the 7th of December? Yup, I see last minute shopping in my future and what better place to do it than Saturday Market?!
