FARM FRESH: So the good folks at Pine State Biscuits thought that nearly 400 pieces of product would be more than enough to get them through the first day of this year's newly expanded Portland Farmers Market, the one that is held on Saturday on the campus of Portland State University.
And, well, they were wrong.
By 12:30 pm Pine State, as well as many other of the 120 vendors who were all part of the opening day...um...mob scene, were completely sold out....or had lines of 25-plus long.
Oh well, it was still a beautiful day and a great place to meet up with new vendors, like Petunia’s Pies & Pastries and Via Chicago (a Chi-town-style pizza stand) as well as old friends like Alma Chocolates, Salumeria di Carlo's and Rogue Creamery. It was also the spot to run into local celebs like increasingly svelte chef Morgan Brownlow (above) of piggy little Tails and Trotters as well as Metro President David Bragdon who knees were dirty from planting trees along the I-205 corridor all morning.
Ah, I love Portland in the springtime. It smells like dirt. And veggies. And cheese.
