It's a Picnic in the Park
Celebrate Memorial Day at the Portland Saturday Market's new Waterfront Home. With sprawling green lawns surrounding the Market, there is no shortage of picnic space for you, your family and your dog to play in the sun. The Bill Naito Legacy Fountain at Portland Saturday Market, which is designed for folks of all ages to frolic in the waters adds an element of surprise with its ever-changing water patterns.
No picnic is complete without the perfect meal and you don't have to pack your own! The Market has over 20 food carts to choose from. At Old Town Burger, you'll find Burgers, chicken sandwiches, chili dogs, southwest salads, and seasonal desserts.
Don't think we've forgotten your four-legged friends. We've got hundreds of treats for dogs of all shapes and sizes. Check out Sewing Ventures (Booth #308) or Doodlebug Duds (Booth #805) for the perfect waterproof dog coats, collars and leashes, reversible scarves, fleece sweaters, beds, carriers and tug toys. No trip to the Market with your dog is complete without getting a bag of Reba's Healthy Gourmet Doggy Cookies. You'll find several flavors of these crunchy wholesome cookies at Booth # 909.
The Market's Main Stage will be serving up a great mix of music all weekend long with the likes of Sandy Saunders Band -www.sandysaundersmusic.com on Saturday 5/29 and Thistle & Rose- www.agirlwithaguitar.com on Sunday 5/30.
