Saturday Market on Thursday

Portland has an established tradition, Saturday Market, that’s been there for decades now, I think. As you might gather from the name, it’s a market open on Saturdays located under the Burnside Bridge. It’s a great place for wandering and looking at the product of Portland’s artisans. In the run up to Christmas, Saturday Market holds a Festival of the Last Minute wherein the market stays open everyday for the month prior to Christmas.

The Bachmans have been selling Bella Mi at Saturday Market, and I helped Kathy set up her stall today and did a little selling on her behalf.

Here are some pictures:

I really enjoy Saturday Market. It’s a ritual of mine to go, get a piece of hot, steaming fry bread, and just wander around looking at the different stalls. It’s also been the source of some lovely Christmas presents in the past. Unfortunately not this year though. Given all my wanderings over the last 6 months, money’s tight. My merriest Christmas wishes will have to suffice. 🙂
