Mother's Marketplace
It’s right next to a lumber yard and looks like a trailer, but I swear it’s a store!

We found ourselves going through Hood River this past weekend and lucky for us it was lunchtime. Instead of stopping just anywhere I decided to search Yelp for vegan, it’s a great way to support veg-focused small business.

With that search I found Mother’s Marketplace, a small vegetarian-vegan grocery store with an even smaller deli inside.

Taking exit 64 off of Interstate 84, then turning right onto route 30, you might miss that it’s there, even if you’re using GPS.

We did!

It’s in a trailer-sized building with a busy logo (if you haven’t seen it before) adjacent to a lumber yard. We drove by, but were able to pull into the lumber yard and—probably illegally—drive through the parking lot to get to Mother’s.

The Haul:

  • R.W. Knudsen organic pineapple juice
  • Tofurky Sandwich
  • Mother’s own ranch style seasoning
  • 2 bags of Lundberg rice chips
  • Mi-Del vanilla snaps (I’m hoping they’re like vanilla wafers, so I can make this)
  • Alternative Baking Company’s peanut butter persuasion
  • The Philly wrap
  • Maskal’s brown teff
  • Townsend’s rose water kombucha
  • ginger beer

Because we’re smart and trust each other’s choices we split our sandwich and wrap so we could both try something new. I liked ‘my’ sandwich the best, but they were both good. Pickles and mustard really send a good sandwich into exceptionally good sandwich territory.

These sandwiches were located in their refrigerator along with other goodies like local Oregon sauerkrauts, kvass, and more.
