We Tripped on Down to the First Saturday Market 2012

The first Saturday Market was held on May 9, 1970. It rained, and there were 29 vendors. The Market now has over 800 active members and nearly 300 of these members sell each week, rain or shine. The founder of Saturday Market is Lotte Streisinger, who is still an active member of the Eugene arts community. She brought the vision of a Saturday marketplace to Eugene from market plazas she saw in Central America coupled with childhood memories of European markets. The first Saturday Market was held in the alley next to the Oak Street Overpark. After a short one summer stand on the plaza in front of the County Courthouse, the Market was moved to the “Butterfly” parking structure across from the courthouse. Saturday Market moved to its present site on the Park Blocks in April, 1983.And is still going strong April 2012
