Portland is a gem in the West, a familiar hipster haven with an affection for the outdoors. Artisanal crafts, coffee, and cocktails enliven the quadrant city, all to the rhythm of the entrepreneurial flow which emboldens such creativity and ambition. It’s where intellectuals find themselves in sleeveless fleece zip-ups trail running America’s largest urban forest. A floppy hat with low Frye boots will get you everywhere else you need to go — that and a rain coat. Heel toe over to Mississippi in Portland’s NE quadrant — a youthful area filled with tons of awesome and affordable clothing and vintage shops and heaps more bars. Here you’ll find The Meadow, a small shop entirely devoted to artisanal bitters, salts, and chocolates from around the world, not mention a wide assortment of blocks and bowls made from Himalayan salt. It’s the ultimate gift shop for your favorite folks or just for yourself. New Yorkers can check out their latest location in the West Village.
