Feast Portland is here! You have one last chance to take off work on Friday afternoon and get tickets for the Friday Grand Tasting. Can’t do it? There IS still a way you can get a taste of Feast Portland. Back for its second year, the FeastFabCollab series pairs participating artisans and chefs to create one-of-a-kind items. Available at select New Seasons Markets and other locations around Portland, portion of proceeds from FeastFabCollab items will be donated to Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon.
I’m most looking forward to the Stumptown + Alma Chocolate Whipped Mocha bar. Think of it as a sophisticated 3 Musketeers with a mocha center. I mean, c’mon, right?
