In Season NW: Winter Wonderland
With temperatures hovering in the mid-30s and the threat of snow in the forecast, Portlanders were out in force this last weekend stocking up for the rapidly approaching Thanksgiving holiday. The bounty of squash, peppers, greens, meats and cheeses didn't disappoint, and the overflowing tables promise many good shopping opportunities at the several markets that will stay open through the winter months, including those at Lloyd, Hillsdale, People's and Oregon City. Montavilla will hold a monthly "stock up" market once a month through February; check their website for dates and times. If you know of others, please add them in the comments section below.
