This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Kachka, 960 SE 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97214, USA

Come on and let’s explore the bustling streets of the Buckman neighborhood. All the while this Portland culinary tour will take us to some of Portland’s distinctive foodie offerings. This once exclusively industrial neighborhood has undergone a Renaissance in recent years. It has come into its own as a favorite place for hipsters to live, hang out and of course eat! A plethora of diverse and delicious eateries await you.

Our six stops in this Portland epicurean walking tour will create a varied and scrumptious meal and whet your appetite for what the Buckman hood has to offer. Examples will include ethnic contributions such as the well renowned Nostrana and Katchka, as well as a visit to a local cidery, a vibrant food cart pod and an eclectic specialty salt shop.

You will not leave hungry!

While the Buckman hood is extends more broadly, we will be focusing on the mini-hubs called The Goat Blocks as well as in and around Hawthorne St.

In this unique Portland food tour, we will walk a total of 1.7 miles through the neighborhood, including vintage homes, repurposed industrial spaces and hipster hangouts while we visit six foodie hot spots in the Buckman neighborhood. Along the way we will also talk about the history and current going ons of Buckman and Portland. We will end about .5 miles from where we start. I will lead us back to our starting point, or you are welcome to walk or rideshare back in your own time.

Wear comfortable shoes and bring rain gear, if it looks like we will be blessed with some of Portland’s liquid sunshine.

This tour requires you be 21 and over.
