A sampling of the locally-made products at the Portland Bazaar,December 11-13, 2015.It’s no secret: Our favorite way to shop for produce is at our local farmers markets. Similarly, our favorite way to shop for gifts is at our local makers markets. What beats something expertly crafted by a designer in your own city? And like those farmers, you can meet the makers (and have a good star-struck Instagramable moment) in-person.
