Farmers Market - don't understand why ...

How incongrous is it that the foodies and Portlanders who flock to "buy local!" at the Portland Farmers Market also flock to the Starbucks when there is a great coffee place, locally run by a very nice apparently Middle Eastern man and his kids, across the street. Anyone else tried this place? His coffee isn't exactly the same each time but last Saturday's was terrific, and no line (and no chain coffee; I don't think SB is all that great anyway). Shop local, including coffee.
