Fodor's Review

On weekends from March to Christmas, the west side of the Burnside Bridge and the Skidmore Fountain area has North America's largest open-air handicraft market. If you're looking for jewelry, yard art, housewares, and decorative goods made from every material under the sun, then there's an amazing collection of works by talented artisans on display here. Entertainers and food and produce booths add to the festive feel. If taking the MAX train to the market, get off at

the Skidmore Fountain stop.

A Must Do and See Experience in Portland

I've never taken an out-of-towner to Saturday market and walked away hearing anything but raves. Need I say more? Well I will.

Absolutely THE place to go to find that unique gift for that hard to please Parent/Friend... whatever. Plan on grabbing lunch and enjoying some of the best street performers you'll ever

Bazaar Lover's Paradise

This is the best of the craft bazaar scene by far, in that you can go there every weekend except the two months it's closed. A great way to spend a beautiful Saturday or Sunday outdoors.

Waste of Time!

Of the 300 vendors, there are about 12 that are really of interest if you have any experience in arts and crafts shopping. Much of what is on display is cheesy junk. You can see it all in 60 minutes. A better "market" trip is the Saturday morning Portland Farmer's Market near/on the PSU campus.
