During my short trip to Portland, I had an opportunity to explore the Saturday Market in the heart of the city. Our hotel was in the downtown of Portland and we walked to the market during morning hours to check out the local handmade shops.
I loved strolling through the cute little shops of handmade jewelry, scented candles, and soaps. The other fascinating creative items were the paintings, lamps and pottery which were carved by the locals who sold them in the market. There was a lavender shop that caught my attention and had lavender eye pillows, bath salts and almost everything there was lavender flavor. I and my aunt ended up buying the irresistible crystal candles, clay bowls and handmade artisan soaps.
After spending some time in the market, we were hungry and headed towards the food trucks in Downtown Portland. The food trucks is one of the specialties of the city of Portland and we definitely wanted to try some of them. We ended up trying Korean, Mexican and Thai food trucks and to my surprise all of them were delicious and made us so full. We then headed towards the Vodoo Donuts which is the most famous place in Downtown Portland for donuts. We waited there for about an hour in the queue to get our Donuts and it was definitely worth the wait to get those mouthwatering chocolate, raspberry creamy donuts.
My trip to Portland was very short yet sweet. I have had such great memories that I am going to cherish forever 🙂 How was your Thanksgiving week? Do share, I would love to read.
