I'm a Bay Area hound that visits Portland regularly and is scoping out the food scene...
Where do local foodies go to purchase their boutique, hard to find (and fine) wines and cheeses (either domestic or imported), attend tastings, and find knowledgeable and passionate folk that sell cheese and wine?
Please share your favorite shopping haunts and why you love them so much!
If you're familiar with the East Bay specialty food stores, I'm wondering if there are stores in Portland like Berkeley's Cheeseboard or Oakland's Farmstead Cheeses & Wine, Paul Marcus, etc.
Thanks for sharing!
