Portland Saturday Market and the Occupy Movement 11-19-11

Support the Occupy movement with purposeful shopping choices this Holiday season.  Avoid supporting big business corporations by purchasing direct from artisans and small business owners.  We are lucky here in the Pacific Northwest Portland, Oregon area, we have the Portland Saturday Market.  Which is the longest running and largest outdoor artisan market in the United States.

Portland Saturday Market is comprised of local artisans and there is everything you could possibly imagine and them some to be found.   The Portland Saturday Market is open from the first weekend in March until Christmas Eve Day.
