Next up is Buckman's Ota Tofu, situated at 812 S.E. Stark St. With five stars out of 25 reviews on Yelp, the gourmet food spot has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for a cheap option.

Yelper Kristi P. noted, "This long-standing tofu-making operation has a small storefront from which you can buy direct. If you're a tofu fan and you're in the area, it definitely worth stopping by and stocking up."

And Isabella G. wrote, "Amazing tofu made fresh daily, they even offer a discount for bringing your own container. They also have fried tofu and soymilk."

3. Poplandia Gourmet Popcorn

Northwest's Poplandia Gourmet Popcorn, located at 740 N.W. 23rd Ave., is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the artisan popcorn spot four stars out of 55 reviews.

Yelper April C. wrote, "Very small little store tucked within NW 23rd and paired with Saint Cupcake. You can try any of the flavors and there is a whole wall of bags ($4) to take home. These are super fresh and the flavor selection is pretty crazy."

Stop by for a lineup of sweet and savor flavors such as cinnamon apple churro, jalapeno pepper jack, Mayan hot chocolate and hickory smoked gouda.

4. King Harvest
