Last time we checked out Portland Farmers Market was about five years ago. It was in spring and we were not that impressed. Fast Forward to this trip in the fall and the difference was like day and night. There were so many beautiful variety of organic produce. The prepared food was not that great and was very carb heavy.
Amazing variety of beautiful flowers.
Loved this Pâté. Very dark intense chocolate flavor with plenty of rosemary to keep you sharp. A little pricey though and the ingredients were very simple. I wish I could get my hands on the recipe.
A very good product. Sour cherry is my favorite childhood treat and lately there have been a lot of buzz about all the benefits such as pain management.
Pretty good hazelnut flavor but softer in texture than the organic ones.
The organic hazelnuts were smaller than the non organic ones and we felt they were a little more crunchy.
We also tried fresh crab from the seafood guy and although a little pricy, it was pretty good.
I found this place by accident. I was checking out the Costa Mesa’s Farmer’s MKT and sampled their bead. As soon as I sampled the “New bread” I was sold. It had the best crust that I have had in the area. The baker is German and their shop is in San Clemente, CA. I have tried the following breads:
New bread, My favorite and the owner’s favorite bread. Whole Grain Dark Rye Sourdough with a delicious hard crust.
Whole Grain Baguette, it was nice and had a sweet taste to it
Whole Grain Oat Bread was good
Kamut was very interesting and nutty
Spelt, very nice bread, but on the pricy side at almost $8
Chocolate bread with almond, I sampled it and the chocolate was still warm and delicious. I just wished they made that bread with whole grain flour.
