No. 2: Portland, OR

3 of 22

Portland ranks No. 1 in the AFC for being environmentally
aware
: locals like their food and drink wholesome and with a local vibe.
(It’s No. 1 for farmers’
markets
too.) Indie coffee shops may tell you exactly where the beans came
from—and one coffeehouse co-op even lets you pay whatever you deem fair. But
there may be one Portland beverage that AFC voters like even more than the
java: microbrews, which rank No. 1 in the survey.
