Market Photo Report: Bacon Pickles and the Perfect Corn

Yes, you read that correctly. Bacon pickles. Unbound Pickling is satisfying that seemingly insatiable Portland pork hunger with a hickory-smoked dill pickle that would be happy on any burger, though there isn't actually any bacon in the brine. Sneaky pandering marketing? Brilliant idea? Either way they are damn tasty.

The PSU market was intimidatingly busy, as per usual, but it was worth braving the crowds for the first corn, colorful cauliflower as big as my head, great walla walla sweet onions, and the piles and piles of carrots reigning over the rest of the early summer bounty. Check it out for yourself next weekend, at the South Park Blocks on the PSU Campus, 8:30 to 2 pm. See you there.


  1. Love these photos!! And absolutely love your writing!!! There is nothing like good corn!! Hope all is well ... headed up to your neck of the woods in a week ... CAN'T WAIT!

  2. Those photos are pretty amazing. I especially like the guy holding the onions. So farmer's market-like. :)

  3. Portland can introduce the weirdest yet most interesting products in the market. Those bacon pickles look enticing. I can't wait to get my hands on them.
