Each Saturday, April through mid-November, Lane County’s favorite artisans, chefs and musicians bring their creations to Saturday Market, Eugene’s weekly open-air marketplace, creating a vibrant event that nurtures local commerce and community. Founded in May of 1970, Eugene’s Saturday Market is Oregon’s original Saturday Market, and the oldest weekly open-air crafts festival in the United States. Wander among the nearly 250 booths filled with handmade wares, sold by the artisans themselves. Jewelers, potters, clothiers, candle makers, glass workers and many more bring their arts to sell. The International Food Court features 15 food booths serving a wide array of meals prepared fresh on site, including burritos, pad thai, pizza and cheesecake. The Market Stage showcases local and regional musicians playing everything from original folk to jazz, Celtic music to rock-and-roll all day long. The Lane County Farmers Market is just across the street each Saturday. Two nearby parking structures provide plenty of free parking, and the area is fully wheelchair accessible. The Market is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April through mid-November, on the Park Blocks at the corner of 8th and Oak in downtown Eugene. For more information, call (541) 686-8885.
