Northeast Alberta Street has become one of Portland's most funky and creative neighborhoods. Shops of handcrafted items and artsy boutiques mix with older stores and import goods like Green Bean Books the perfect children's bookstore, Digs Inside and Out a meet home the decor shop, and Trade Up music store. Food choices range from trendy pubs and hip cafes to traditional taquerias and food carts. Though there are only a few dedicated galleries, the area is perfused with art, much of it being of the outsider variety. Most of the shops and restaurants adorn their walls with rotating shows of local artists. Alberta Street celebrates on Last Thursday, with an art walk that is also a raucous street fair.
