One of the best things in Portland are the amazing farmers markets full of fresh produce and other interesting goodies. I like to go to the Wednesday market at Shemanski Park downtown; it makes a perfect quick escape from the office and isn’t as overwhelming as the Saturday one at PSU.
This was a fun visit. I bought one perfect black truffle for an omelet, some lacinato kale, and a French tarragon plant. There are a handful of prepared food places at the market, and one of my favorites is the Tart Lady. This particular tart had asparagus, a little bit of bacon, and Gorgonzola cheese.
What’s your best ever farmers market find? Are you a purist – only fruits and vegs -or do you like the other things – lavender bouquets, prepared foods, local wines. I like it all!
