Saturday Market
Continued from Page 6B
Rain, both the hard drenching
kind and the all day mist com
mon to the Willamette Valley,
won’t keep vendors from setting
up stalls at the Saturday Market
each week, says market man
ager Howard Wade.
But whatever the weather,
"all kinds of great stuff is hap
pening here," Wade says.
The great stuff includes street
performers, entertainers, mer
chants and their wares. Every
thing at Saturday Market is
homemade.
"One of the main things that
happens here is the opportunity
to try out a product,” Wade
says. "It’s real important to get
that feedback for them (crafts
people) to grow.”
And as the craftspeople have
grown and introduced new
products to the market, the Sa
turday Market has grown. What
began on a Saturday 10 years
ago with a handful of merchants
and a sparse crowd of shoppers
has expanded to up to 200 mer
chants on some Saturdays and

elbow to elbow people, Wade
says.
The year 1970 marked the
beginning of the local
homemade craft industry.
People were starved for
something that wasn't mass
produced, says Helen Tolson, a
regular market participant who
first spread her blanket to sell
produce in 1970.
Homemade merchandise and
home-cooked food are only part
of the market picture. Enter
tainers and street musicians fill
in the holes.
Street entertainers are an es
sential part of the market
atmosphere, Wade says. They
are scheduled to perform from
when the market opens until it
closes, 10 a m. to 4 p.m. The
music, along with the antics of
mimes and clowns and occa
sional exotic dancers, helps to
create a party atmosphere.
The party atmosphere is
further enhanced by the ap
pearance of unscheduled per
formers, who often upstage the
scheduled entertainment.
The market has retained its
colorful atmosphere, but blan
kets no longer dot the Saturday
Market site. Today’s merchants
display a much higher degree of
sophistication, are more busi
ness-like and have increased
the quality of their crafts
tremendously, Wade says.
The market has been trans
formed from a "hippie” place to
one where anyone feels com
fortable, he says.
"The market has been char
acterized as a hippie industry,”
Wade says.
"That’s definitely not true. An
awful lot of people have made
the Saturday Market a part of
their routine.”
