I am not complaining about Portland’s weather especially when the rest of the country is experiencing extreme weather.
Still, it is nice to walk into this patio at Zupan’s a local, small chain of grocery stores in the Portland. The elegant overhead lights, the flowers, tables and chairs and the outside heaters create a welcoming environment.
On the left, is Zupan’s card and floral shop. It’s great for little gifts, plants and floral arrangements.
The patio, or breezeway, offers shelter from the rain and a place to relax with a warm drink.
On the right is the entrance to the grocery store where I find all kinds of goodies from Bliss Nut Butters to Ellenos yogurt.
I appreciate that the produce staff will repackage my vegetables into smaller quantities so I can buy a small piece of cauliflower rather than a whole head or half an acorn squash rather than a whole one.
After shopping, Jack takes my groceries to the car and unloads them. He is one of the reasons I return to Zupan’s!
