Looking for delicious gifts for your favorite foodie this holiday season? Then head over to Foster & Dobbs, a small artisan food and wine shop located in the charming Irvington neighborhood in Northeast Portland.

Pure Sea Salt (hand-harvested in Oceanside, OR), and Ayers Creek Golden Gage Organic Plum Jam (see Sunset Magazine feature). And don’t forget some Olympic Provisions Salami — it makes an excellent hostess gift! Cheese trays also available (call ahead to order). Before you leave, sit down and enjoy a glass of wine and a freshly-made panini featuring crusty Pearl Bakery bread. Ahhh, now this is how holiday shopping was meant to be!
