Portland Farmer’s Market

12 Aug

Lemon Poppy Seed CakeOne of the best ideas we had in Portland was to visit the Farmer’s Market on Saturday at Portland State. Almost immediately upon getting there, we spotted the deliciousness above at Gabriel’s Bakery stand. This was a gluten-free lemon poppy seed cake. Thinking that there wouldn’t be too many things for me, we bought it and ate it immediately. It was incredibly good. Once we started walking around some more, we found that almost every stand there had GF options. There were too many gluten-free things! There were numerous GF bakeries, savory hand pies, ice cream sandwiches and more. I couldn’t resist getting a baguette at the New Cascadia stand.

GF BaguetteThis bakery is entirely gluten-free. I ended up snacking on this over the next couple of days. We also saw a Petunia’s stand. Knowing how much we enjoyed our experience there the day before, we decided to try their Salted Caramel Cookie Bar.

Salted Caramel Cookie BarThis did not disappoint as it was the perfect balance of sweet and salty. If you are in Portland on a Saturday you MUST experience this Farmer’s Market… and go hungry!
