After lunch at Pok Pok - Portland - Oregon, Darlene of Blazing Hot Wok and I headed downtown to check out the Farmers Market at Portland State University.

Located in the South Park Blocks, the Portland Farmers Market at PSU is one of the city's nicest, if for nothing else but the location.

What I did notice was that the vegetables were more expensive than in SoCal.

I've been spoiled because SoCal's farmers market produce is really quite affordable.

Afterward, we unsuccessfully searched for the Koi Fusion Korean taco truck, which wasn't where it was supposed to be, so we ended up walking around downtown a bit more.
