If you are interested in the behind the scenes foodie world, one must visit Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store near Portland in Milwaukie, Oregon.
The building alone is simply gorgeous.
But the inside holds the real treasures. You can take a factory tour.
Shop for grains.
And there are many gluten free options. And don’t forget the bakery and restaurant. If you’re lucky, you might even catch Bob playing the piano on site.

While in Portland, I learned Dave from Dave’s Killer Bread got his start working for Bob. So, of course, his factory is right across the street.
I’m nuts about Dave’s Killer Bread (they call us breadheads) so I grabbed a special Oregon-themed loaf. It did not disappoint. (Sorry for the grainy picture.) I know. I know. But seedy puns are kinda my thing.
