  1. Bowery Bagels

    Bowery Bagels

    (Portland, OR)

    Bowery Bagels in Portland, Oregon is creating Portland’s best Kosher bagels with delicious schmears and a full Stumptown barista set-up to boot. Brooklyn, N.Y. native Michael Madigan moved to Portland some 28 years ago and he had yet to find a bagel as perfect as the ones he enjoyed every Sunday with his family on the East Coast. Eager to take on the challenge, Madigan opened Portland’s premier New York style bagel bakery-meets-sandwich shop with an eclectic retail space featuring food products from local artisan producers who work out of KitchenCru. With one-of-a-kind special bagels mimicking classic sweet and savory flavor combinations as well as staple sandwiches featuring house roasted meats and house cured meats and fish, Bowery Bagels ups the ante when it comes to bagels in Portland. The beautiful shop is mirrored after a 1960’s New York bagel shop with custom tile works from the store’s namesake subway station.

  3. Felton and Mary’s Artisan Foods

    Felton and Mary’s Artisan Foods

    (Portland, OR)

    My grandparents Felton and Mary Campbell were a remarkable couple with a gift for hospitality. For nearly twenty years they ran the most beloved BBQ restaurant in SE Portland, Oregon called Campbell’s BBQ. In their home and in their restaurant, they loved to cook and serve meals for a crowd. They appreciated high quality ingredients and used only the best, which is why their food tasted so much better than other people’s. With a love for urban farming and quality ingredients Felton and Mary shared an uncompromising commitment to their brand of Texas style BBQ. People came in for the food but stuck around for the relationships. Strangers came in, became regulars, and eventually called my grandparents mom and dad. My family has decided that one of the best ways to honor the legacy of my grandparents is to bring their recipes back to market for the public, to reconnect with old customers and introduce them to a new fan base of people who enjoy barbecue. We make three flavors of BBQ sauces and a spice rub for meats or veggies. We hope you love them as much as we do.
