Last weekend, I met up with friends from photography school at the farmers market. Kris and Dakota LeBoeuf, the incredibly talented pair behind We Romantics, just relocated to Portland. It was great to catch up with them and compare notes on living in the Pacific Northwest. I'm so glad they'll be in town and can't wait to see the photos they make here.
There's a farmers market open somewhere in the city every day for most of the year. The biggest, held Saturdays on the PSU campus, includes over 100 vendors every week. It's like a festival, with music and food trucks in addition to the market vendors. There was nothing comparable in Connecticut. Portland makes it easy to support local farmers and other small businesses.
