Where can I buy the best butter in PDX?

I want to make some really killer croissants and I am wondering where I can buy the best quality butter in Portland.

  1. Just my opinion...the butter from Rogue Creamery that is sold at the PSU farmer's market on Saturdays is excellent. It is salted however.

    1. New Seasons sells European butters - try those. I think Trader Joes may sometimes too.

        Yep you can always get European butters at TJ's, including Plugra.

        Jacob's Creamery sells European-style cultured butter:

        Haven't tried it, but the Jacob's Creamery products I have tried have all been wonderful (the mascarpone can bring tears to your eyes it is so good).

          Jacob's pudding is super good too.

              You can find it at the farmers' markets. I bought a small tub / container of their vanilla down at the Sunday Milwaukie farmers' market last year.

            I'm in rural Oregon (lucky to have Safeway butter :) ) but we went into PDX today and stopped at TJ's. They had Kerigold for $2.69. I think that'll work. I couldn't find Plugra today, but maybe they'll have it another day. Thanks for all the help. I appreciate it.

              @JillO: Do you know if they have a plain/unsalted butter? I've seen their flavored/sour cream/marscapone products, but nothing standard.

                I don't know, sorry...I just know I've seen butter among their products, but I have never purchased it...

                1. re: JillO

                  If you mean the Kerigold, they have salted and unsalted.

          2. Another idea is to buy some high quality cream from a local dairy and make your own butter. It only takes about 6-8 min and nothing beats homemade!
