Must see foodie stops?
I'm a grad student planning a trip up to Portland from San Francisco in August (with parents and sibling.)
Any major foodie places that I just MUST see/eat at/visit?
Would prefer places that don't require dressing up and reservations. Love hole-in-the-wall places, quintessentially local places, markets, farmers markets and the like.
Saturday PSU farmers' market, weekday lunch at our downtown food carts, evening / weekend meals at our neighborhood food cart pods like Cartopia or Mississippi Marketplace, etc... (http://www.foodcartsportland.com/)
I'm not too familiar with our better restaurants myself, but there seems to be a general consensus on many of them scattered around the board.
