About Portland Saturday Market

Portland Saturday Market is the largest arts and crafts market in continuous operation in the United States. It is held every Saturday and Sunday from March through Christmas Eve in Waterfront Park and Ankeny Plaza. The Market has over 350 vendors who generate about $8 million in gross sales annually and attract over 1 million visitors to the historic Old Town district of Portland each year. All items sold at the Saturday Market are required to be handmade by the person selling it, and a product review committee of members juries each new item against a high standard of quality. The market is accessible by TriMet’s MAX line which stops within the market at the Skidmore Fountain stop. Make a $25 purchase and receive a free TriMet ticket or a two hour parking validation at any Smart Park garage.

    I love gifting local eatibles or (if I’m mailing it internationally) dish/cook ware

    If I was the won to win I would buy something for my mother-in-law. Not only did she make it to their sixtieth anniversary, but she also seems quite sane. Me on the other hand, married to their son and husband equivalent, not quite so.

    A handmade wallet out of nice soft leather. My dad’s wallet is past its prime and I would love to buy him a new one to replace his worn one. To give him something that will last and will remind him of me everyday.

    I haven’t been to the Market for some time. winning a card would certainly get me there (and I’d be spending a lot more than $25.00).

    I love anything homemade! Adds character to your home. And it keeps money spent local.

  32. Diana December 18, 2014 at 3:27 pm #

    I would definitely go for the wall art. Okay first I would get some delicious food (maybe Mexican and a pig ear) while walking around, then I would get the wall art. My bare walls need some local love! So I would spend the gc on me… “All I want for Christmas is”… wall art :)

  33. Erica December 18, 2014 at 4:07 pm #

    Nothing says the holidays like distilled spiritus!

  44. BettyJean December 19, 2014 at 7:36 am #

    Thank you again PDX Pipeline. I have my eyes on the PDX Coasters for sure and a lavender sachet. I told my coworkers that I also have my eye on some earings to match a gifted neclace from my aunt. As a single mom I never spend on me. Now my coworkers say they are going to check in on me to be sure and splurge on me. I am conflicted. Help.
