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.
For Ashley Sandell, owner of Caffeinated Culture, coffee runs in her family. Her mother, former owner of Terri Lynn Link's No Ordinary Joe, taught her the tricks of the coffee business before leaving the trade and selling her four shops. Sandell eventually decided she missed the family business and purchased one of her mother's former coffee shops where she now serves her signature coffee roast along with hormone-free dairy products. Beverages include the peanut butter kiss white chocolate mochas with peanut butter and vanilla, shots of fresh espresso, and real fruit smoothies. In addition to the drinks, the baristas dispense treats and pastries from Delphina's Bakery, Bella Cupcake, and Cookie Monkey Bakery.

The shop keeps its wares in rows of accessible glass jars, which shoppers can ogle, smell, or tap with a timpani mallet. An onsite florist makes the storefront vivid with living flowers and herbs ready for planting.
