Feast PDX // Brunch Village

Hello from Michigan!

This weekend, I had my baby shower here in Michigan and it was so much fun! I’ll be sharing more photos from that soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to share the last of my photos from Feast!
Last Sunday was the fourth and final day of Feast and this year, they held a brand new event called Brunch Village…and it ended up being my absolute FAVORITE event out of the whole weekend!

First of all, who doesn’t love brunch? Plus, brunch is such a big thing here in Portland that it just makes perfect sense to have an event like this as part of Feast.

Brunch Village took place in Pioneer Square, which is the same spot that the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting was held on Friday and Saturday, but it was laid out a little differently. There were fewer vendors serving food, and that made it much more relaxed plus there were more tables set up to actually sit down and eat, which I thought was great. This was especially helpful because the portions served at Brunch Village were some of the most substantial that I had all weekend! Granted I love brunch food so I may be biased, but everything I had at Brunch Village was delicious.

I’m not a huge carrot cake person, but I loved the delicious carrot cake pancakes from Charm City Cakes…and the coolest part is that they were served to me by Duff Goldman himself!
He was out there all morning serving food and seemed like he was having a blast! One of the coolest parts about the whole Feast experience in general is that you had all these big name chefs just out there mixing and mingling with us normal people and enjoying all the good food!
It was really really hot on Sunday and so Stumptown was there with delicious iced coffee!
Rachel and Brooke enjoying the last day of Feast fun!
There were really good tunes on Sunday which added to the laid back vibe of Brunch Village
We have a gray Kitchen Aid mixer…but I would love either that hot pink mixer or the chrome one!
Tillamook was the title sponsor of Brunch Village and they had the most delicious biscuits!
Inside the tent, there were a lot more delicious eats to enjoy!
The most popular thing at Brunch Village was definitely Franklin Barbecue from Austin, TX…
People were lined up to try this world famous barbecue, but sadly, I was too busy walking around sampling other things to get in line and they ran out before I got a chance to try it 🙁
There were lots of wineries at the event doing strolling pours which added to the laid back vibe
This dish from Butcher & Bee in Charleston had grits and okra – yum!
Perennial Portland brunch favorites like Pine State Biscuits and Mother’s Bistro were there too!
This Kimchi Fried Rice from Egg Slut in LA was also a huge hit!
Kelsey and I always have to get a picture together 🙂

Whole Foods was on site printing free tote bags!
They also had an awesome Bloody Mary bar set up…
Not to sound like a broken record about not being able to drink, but I love a good Bloody Mary so I was kind of bummed I couldn’t make one – I settled for taking a picture of Rachel’s instead 🙂

Overall, Brunch Village was such a fun experience and it was the absolute perfect way to end an amazing Feast weekend! If you’re considering attending next year (which you totally should!), then I would HIGHLY recommend going to Brunch Village, you won’t regret it!
