Portland Saturday Market is a great place to visit. Especially if like us, you enjoy people watching. It is one of the few places in Portland where everyone from all walks of life mingle regardless of what there typical haunts are. The diversity you can find not only in artistic wares, but also in the people. From artisans, to locals, to visitors from a couple hours away to visitors who have travelled half way around the world.
Random crowd shot on the outskirt of the market.
It is fun watching people walking and looking at artisans booths as they pass.
Occasionally there are mishaps of people running into each other, however it doesn't happen often.
This view is from Ankeny square looking towards the river where the Market continues. Portland Saturday Market encompasses Ankeny Square on one side of the street and on the other side of Natio Parkway the cemented section left of the fountain. It extends all the way under Burnside Bridge.
