Adventures in Portland

Leah Cook (of Wild Hare Farm), my good friend and roommate at the conference, were naughty and skipped a session on antique roses so we could check out the farmers' market. This market was AWESOME. As it was a 10-2pm market, right downtown, there was tons of prepared food. While I was there, I ate a pint of raspberries (half yellow, half red; the yellow was much better, hands down), a pickle, several sample items, a sausage sandwich, and for a drink, a delicious cup of freshly brewed Ethiopian coffee from Stumptown coffee. Can we say heaven?!! Yes we can!! The market was definitely a highlight of the trip. They basically has our whole season present at the market. Onions, lettuce, beets, artichokes (a rare find here at home), tomatoes, peppers, carrots, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, corn, etc. etc. All of a sudden, I felt so at home in the big city.
