If you’ve somehow managed to turn a blind eye to all the holiday markets that have been going on around Portland these past couple of weeks, you may find yourself dangerously close to a panic attack at the prospect of showing up to Christmas with a generic mug as a gift for your pals.

If you are, then we have a solution to all your worries. Portland’s Festival of the Last Minute is for people who’ve delayed their holiday shopping and are frantically looking for gifts.

Hosted by The Portland Saturday Market, the market place will feature a selection of handmade art pieces and craft from local talent. It’s a great way to support Portland’s artist economy while also buying some unique gifts for yourself and your family.

The holiday market will also have several warming stations, Santa’s booth, carolers, and other seasonal festivities and decorations. There will be delicious holiday treats provided, along with a SmartPark validation (for two hours).

If you purchase anything that costs more than $25, you’ll also be eligible for a TriMet ticket.
