Things we like: The Meadow in Portland

For a three-day get-away, Portland is hard to beat, especially with an afternoon trip to Powell’s Books ( and then dinner at Piazza Italia in the Pearl District ( But we’ve been trying to explore more, beyond the core and what did we find? On Mississippi Street in North-East Portland ( you’ll find stores like The Meadow, which specializes in chocolate, and inĀ  gourmet salts, which makes it an excellent stop if you or anyone you know is a gourmand ( While you’re there, don’t forget to try a food from a mobile food cart on nearby Alberta Street!
