The dog days of summer may be over but it’s not time to head inside. We’ve got three outdoor markets you’ll want to explore this Saturday and Sunday. Chocked full of vintage and handmade goods, we think these markets are a perfect way to wile away an afternoon. Check out why we’ve got market fever.
Portland Saturday Market in Portland, Oregon
If you’re in the Northwest, there is no better way to spend the weekend than strolling through the Portland Saturday Market. The seasonal market is a showcase for the handmade community including woodworking, pottery, and homemade food. Visit Portland Saturday Market at North Waterfront Park & Ankeny Plaza in Portland.
Treasure Island Flea in San Francisco, California
Don’t wait to make your way over to the Treasure Island Flea! The monthly event is held on the beautiful Treasure Island off the coast of San Francisco. This weekend take part in a DIY scrapbook workshop with Tami Jo Benson and pick up antiques, vintage fashion and handcrafted goods in between bites of local artisanal food. Check out a few items we have our eye on. We’ll be picking up cuddly toys from One Hot Tomatoe’s Krrb corner for the tykes in our life. August is around the corner but we’d like to stock up on the luxurious autumn scarves at Lix Perle’s Krrb corner. The Apron Guy’s Krrb corner has a few retro styles that are sure to inspire us in the kitchen.
Randolph Street Market in Chicago, Illinois
Randolph Street Market is going strong through the summer with aisles and aisles of hand crafted, secondhand and vintage clothes, decor, and furniture. You can find just about anything at this outdoor (and indoor) market. We’re loving the statement jewelry on Sandpiper Import’s Krrb corner and the delicate charms found on Adorn 512′s Krrb corner. For the home, let’s redecorate with vintage posters from Chicago Center’s Krrb corner and industrial tables from Don and Marta Orwig’s Krrb corner.
