I went to the Saturday farmer’s market in Portland at Portland State University. This is probably the best farmer’s market I have ever been to. The number of vendors was incredible and the array of their bounty varied. One of the best stands was the mushroom farm which also supplied mushrooms to their neighboring stand which had biscuits with mushroom gravy and the best sautéed mushrooms I had ever tasted. There was also a focaccia pizza and bagel stand which brought their own wood burning oven to heat their goods. Some of the stands were from the orchards we had visited on the Fruit Loop Trail. I think the main thing that stood out for me was the care and presentation of all the items on display. You could spend your whole morning here sampling local produce and eating your way through various food stands!
