Looking for reasonably priced, decent produce stores in Portland, particularly on the west side. I found one place (forget its name), over on the east side, at about 80th and Foster, with reasonable prices, but that's a little far to drive to from the west side. I'm tired of paying the outrageous prices that retail grocery chains stick to consumers. I imagine Costco, Winco and their ilk have better prices, but I figure one has to buy in bulk and that the selection is limited in variety.
Lived in SoCal for many years, where I was used to shopping at mom 'n pop grocery stores with produce prices half to one-third of that of chain stores, yet with comparable quality product.
I know there are some local farmers' "barn shops" with somewhat more reasonable prices out towards Scholls (SW of Beaverton), but they are limited in variety and season.
