The Portland Saturday Market, the longest running market in the U.S. devoted exclusively to artists, has kicked off its 35th season this past weekend. Despite conflicting with the annual Southeast Portland Artwalk, there was nonetheless very high attendance. Notable this year is the dramatic change in the site layout, as two major construction projects have altered the landscape. Mercy Corps is building their worldwide headquarters on one side of the site, while the University of Oregon is renovating the White Stag Building to create a Portland Campus on the other. Things seemed to work smoothly despite the changes.
