The annual Portland-based food festival. Bon Appétit Presents Feast Portland has announced the third annual “Feast Fab Collab” series with New Seasons Market. Though Feast is not known for much craft beer industry love, the event does team with a big brewery the last few years for a special beer, and this year it’s 10 Barrel Brewing with Feast Mode Lager. Feast Portland’s retail partner New Seasons Market will be the exclusive retailer for the three collaborations, with the collaborative products hitting shelves throughout the summer leading up to Feast this September 13-16.

- Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches with Maya Lovelace and Ruby Jewel – Launching Wednesday, August 22
o Maya’s Southern Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwich: Featuring cornmeal from Bob’s Red Mill and strawberries from Oregon Fruit Products, these chewy cornmeal cookie and strawberry buttermilk ice cream sandwich represents the best of the Appalachian pantry – the preserved corn that serves as the backbone of every meal, the buttermilk giving richness and tang, and strawberry jam pulling us right back into the warm and sunny days of late spring.
o Grandma Mae’s Sweet Molasses Ice Cream Sandwich: These ice cream sandwiches are inspired by the molasses and apple butter sandwich cookies found in Chef Maya’s grandma’s secret cookie stash – the cookies were soft and chewy, and her apple butter seeped into them to create a surprisingly luxurious texture and a combination of farmhouse flavors she only ever tasted in her Grandma’s home.
o Price: $2.99
- Olympia Provisions Chef Sausage Series with Salumist Elias Cairo – Launching Monday, September 3rd
o Ava Gene’s Owner-Chef Joshua McFadden was motivated by his love of Roman-inspired food when creating this specialty Italian sausage stuffed with kale and provolone cheese, poached to perfection. Grill and pair with fresh pasta, olive oil and some garden cherry tomatoes to elevate your pasta game.
o Chef Abe Conlon of Chicago’s Fat Rice collaborated on this Goan-style pork sausage heavily spiced with turmeric, garlic, chilies, cinnamon and other spices, then smoked. Try this sausage in a new twist on paella, served with fresh shrimp and mussels.
o Price: $8.99
“We’re so excited to host the Feast Fab Collab series for the third year in a row,” said Mark Law, chief operating officer at New Seasons Market. “From premium lager and savory sausages to handmade ice cream sandwiched between chewy cookies, the items celebrate the delicious food from our local partners and chefs, and help extend the festival to the communities we love and serve.”
