South Waterfront boasts a wide variety of boutique luxury shops.
For home decor, artisan candles, body care or sterling silver, try Wonderful PDX, which specializes in bringing luxury gifts to loved ones. Or buy a fresh flower arrangement at the environmentally-friendly retail flower outlet LilyRoot Flowers, which specializes in floral designs for weddings, funerals, baby showers, proms, and other occasions.
Ecru is a woman-owned stationery business featuring artisan cards, postage stamps, printing and more. The stationer carries a large volume of Portland-themed gift cards, books and sweets to send to family and friends.
From June to October, there is a South Waterfront Farmers Market at Elizabeth Caruthers Park from 2 pm to 7 pm. Featuring fresh, local vegetables and handmade goods, it’s best to pick up local produce, fruits or snacks, and head to one of the many parks that make this area an urban nature oasis.
