Groceries & Markets in Damascus

Select Local Merchants

At their new location on 82nd Avenue, the family that owns and operates Morrow Brothers Produce carries on a tradition that's been going strong since 1999. They select the finest fresh, local produce, showcasing it by the flat or by the case. The crew stocks displays with pyramids of organic Idaho potatoes and pomegranates, Troutdale cabbage, and juicy Hermiston watermelons that are ideal for whittling sculptures of Gallagher.

The market's friendly staff can also recommend the best selections for canning or juicing, or point gardeners in the direction of vegetable starts or bedding plants. The shelves boast a wide variety of ethnic foods and seasonal items, including pumpkins and holiday greenery.

Like most of their produce, Spicer Brothers Produce has roots in the Portland area. Over the course of more than two decades in business, the natural produce store has built relationships with local farmers and companies such as Bob’s Red Mill, Spring Valley Dairy, Sisters Coffee, and Portland French Bakery. These connections allow them to keep track of where that food comes from and how it is produced. Each morning, delivery drivers arrive with fresh supplies of fruit, veggies, and baked goods, and a selection of samples are generally available to showcase the shop’s fresh produce. Alongside apples in an autumnal palette of greens and reds, oranges, tangelos, and tangerines beg to be included in juices and fights about what the difference between a fruit and a vegetable is.

Indecision is all part of the fun when it comes to visiting Yogurt Shack. Each shop features self-serve stations that patrons use to fill their cups with calcium-rich YoCream frozen yogurt?a frosty, certified Kosher treat made with a high count of live natural cultures and no high-fructose corn syrup. But choosing a yogurt may prove deliciously daunting, as the staff rotates the selection of flavors at every store and adds seasonal favorites throughout the year. The lineup can include everything from classic chocolate and vanilla to cake batter and fruity sorbets. Once their decisions have been made, customers can finish their personalized creation by topping the yogurt with fruits, candies, and edible name tags before paying by the ounce at the register.

Many traditional artists paint linen or sculpt stone. For an agri-artist such as Craig Easterly, though, a cornfield makes a perfectly good canvas. For more than a decade, Craig has been chiseling through the 12-foot stalks of his 5-acre field to create what is from the ground a maze of rustling green tunnels and from above a stunning tableau of Portland themes and images. "I like to create designs that resonate with Portlanders and our friends in the greater Portland area," he said in a 2011 press release. One year, his work cut the city's bridges and rivers into the corn; in another he incorporated the Portland Timbers insignia into his maze.

Each fall, these Sauvie Island fields birth both Craig's famous corn maze and its evil twin, the Haunted Maize, which spooks its visitors at night with costumed actors and eerie animatronics. Along with its mazes, The Maize at The Pumpkin Patch also sprouts fall-centric family-friendly activities. Overall-clad patrons bounce along on free hayrides, get crowned king of the hay mountain, or mimic the beastly accents of farm animals in the big red barn.
