As some of Portland’s favorite restaurants have shifted to takeout and delivery, many have also pivoted to stocking up your pantries. Whether you’re looking for staples, or hoping to pop a few restaurant-made meal kits in the freezer for those nights when you just can’t cook, they have you covered.
Here’s a collection of some of the top restaurants selling groceries in the Portland area.
