The Portland Saturday Market is actually open on Sundays as well, and it is the largest outdoor arts and crafts market in the United States.

It is located in the historic Old Town, so you can visit it as part of a larger sightseeing expedition. If you are planning to buy some souvenirs, or gifts, this is the perfect place to buy something unique and interesting. The artists often work in their stalls, and you can see how the things on display are made.

In addition to shopping, you can also listen to live music, with different acts each weekend. Lovers of street food will also have a field trip, seeing as there are plenty of stall and cafes serving various treats, from kettle corn and Lebanese or Nepalese specialities to ice cream and pizza.

Address:
108 W Burnside St, Portland, OR 97209, USA

Opening Hours:
SATURDAYS 10 - 5pm
SUNDAYS 11 - 4:30pm
