aloft to the MAX: portland saturday market

A famous stop for all visitors to Portland is the Portland Saturday Market---and your quick-connect to its shopping wonders is just a hop-and-a-skip away!

The newly-expanded Saturday Market features a renowned range of crafty vendors, selling everything from beads, ceramics, and shirts to "Keep Portland Weird" stickers and elephant ears! Now spilling out from Ankeny Park over down to the Waterfront, there's plenty of food, shopping, and music to give you a great Portland day to remember :)

Best thing about the Market is easy access---just hop on the Red Line here at Cascade Station, and ride it to Skidmore Fountain, right in the thick of the Market! It's about a 25-minute ride, and it's virtually door-to-door :) So, should you find yourself with a Saturday free here, get your urban-adventuring shoes on and check out this steadfast Portland staple!
