week 25: local flavor

I am fortunate to live somewhere that "local flavor" is featured and valued. There are 40 farmers markets in the Portland area on a weekly basis, not to mention the hundreds of additional fruit and vegetable stands that can be found sprinkled around. On top of that, there is a plethora of homegrown restaurants, bakeries and breweries that offer up a taste of locally grown food and drink. Farms, creameries, berry-picking, fishing and wineries fill the landscape just minutes from this city where healthy, fresh and happy seem to meet an urban setting and 'local flavor' proves to be abundant. :)
