My favorite way to truly experience a region's food culture is to visit their open air markets. While in Portland, OR - I had an opportunity to do just that. Unfortunately the market is not dog friendly and I had my family traveling with me, including our pets. So while my husband sat in the park outside of the market boundaries, I quickly buzzed through in search of breakfast. I ended up with a gorgeous green olive levain style bread, a chive fromage blanc, maple smoked salmon and golden raspberries, while my children stood in the long line for the savory crepes. And I snapped a few pictures along the way of the incredible produce. If you ever make your way to Portland, be sure to add this beautiful market to your list of stops!
