Portland Powells Books

No trip to Portland is complete without a trip to this behometh and yet somehow eclectic bookstore.



Portland Food Carts

While food carts are everywhere in Portland, our favorite place for them is near 10th and Alder. It’s near the only Target downtown.

Hubby always goes straight for the Egyptian gyros and I love the Georgian dumplings (kinkahli) and cheese bread at Kargi Gogo. I was stuffed after that but also love The Grilled Cheese Truck and The Dump Truck (dumplings.)


Portland Farmer’s Market

Every Saturday Portland has a mega farmer’s market by Portland State University. Hubby and I made it out mission to get to Portland in time. We ate lots of organic, free-range yummies and have lavender goodies to take home.
