Grocers: Northwest

Neighborhood grocery stores are becoming popular again as eaters look to fill their pantries with all things local. Their small size means they can form relationships with local purveyors and order a quantity that doesn’t overwhelm them. It’s like your farmers’ market but in store format. No waiting till Saturday to shop.

Portland | Woodsman Market (pictured). An offshoot of the exceedingly popular Woodsman Tavern next door, it channels old-school stores perfectly. Popular local brands: Jacobsen sea salt; Freddy Guys hazelnut oil; Choi’s small-batch kimchi. 4529 S.E. Division St.; woodsmantavern.com/market

Seattle | Picnic. Stocked with the things that make a great picnic, including their own preserved Meyer lemons. Popular local brands: Deluxe’s peach jam with vanilla and bourbon; hazelnut–cacao nib granola from Marge. 6801 Greenwood Ave. N.; picnicseattle.com
