Portland Saturday Market
This is my 6th season at the Portland Saturday Market. We officially open for the first day of the year tomorrow - March 1st.
Here in Portland I have the opportunity to vend every weekend of the year, with January and February off. The weather is pretty exceptional here (despite the rumors of constant rain) - this market has only shut down twice in its 33 year existence (once because of the ash from Mt Helens blowing up and once when the city was freak-style buried in snow).
Tomorrow its supposed to be T-storming !!! I probably shouldn't go down and set up, but its the first day of the year and I feel obligated and curious... So downtown I will go with a car full of my work. All week it was beautiful and 70degrees out. I am hoping the weather will last thru the weekend (NO RAIN puhlease!)
I'll take pictures... should be an interesting day tomorrow!
