  12. K.S. Bullock December 6, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    As a new Portland transplant from NYC, I have gotten a chance to visit the Saturday market a couple of times. The fresh produce and flowers often remind me of farmers’ market back east. But I must say PDX is growing on me and it wonderful to see, experience and TASTE all things PDX and new! I would love to go to this event!

  13. Sean December 6, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    I went last year for the first time as a visitor to portland and would love to go back my first year as a resident!

  14. Roger Leece December 6, 2012 at 12:01 pm #

    My significant other is in the UK so I had to have all of his Christmas presents rounded up a couple of weeks ago, and now that he is sorted I am ready to find some things for my teenage daughters. They absolutely love the Saturday market and I know I will have great luck there…if only I could afford it! $50 would be ample to find them each something special and local!

  29. Courtney December 6, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    last minute – yup, that’s how my shopping rolls! it would be great to get something special and local to tuck into stockings this christmas.

  30. Erica December 6, 2012 at 3:45 pm #

    Hello there!

    I would love an oppertunity to give back from the Saturday Market. Supporting small business is important and I think this contest is great. Bringing awareness to the our local Saturday Market will hopefully generate more visitors and more profit for the hard working people of Portland.


  31. Devra December 6, 2012 at 3:53 pm #

    I moved to Portland in August and still haven’t found a job. I’d love to win so I could afford to buy lovely hand-made Christmas presents for friends and family back in England.

  32. Hollie L. December 6, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    I’ve never been able to buy anything at the Saturday Market because I haven’t had the money to do so, but I would if I had a gift card!

  33. Kaila December 6, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    I would love to buy some unique, hand crafted gifts for my mom and mother in law!

  34. Martay December 6, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

    This is right up my alley! My middle name is Festival of the Last Minute.

  35. Marianne December 6, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

    I love Saturday Market and what is sold there, but usually can’t buy things there because it’s a little pricey. This would be awesome to win!

  36. Minda December 6, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

    Oh! Spending that money will be so easy! So many great things made by such wonderful artisans.

  37. Dana December 6, 2012 at 4:27 pm #

  46. Autumn December 6, 2012 at 7:32 pm #

    There will be no Christmas this year for me- I am far too poor. Unless I win gift certificates to the Saturday Market. Then I could buy the people I love natural soap and honey products, and maybe a pair or two of one-of-a-kind earrings!

  47. Cory Shird December 6, 2012 at 8:12 pm #
