In this episode we have a story from Manuel Foucher, manager of the Portland Mercado (7238 SE Foster Road, Portland.) He recollects his early memories of growing up in and working at his father’s beach restaurant in Cozumel, Mexico and how his experiences led to a career in the food industry. He also talks about the grand opening of the Portland Mercado this coming Saturday, April 11th. The story and interview were recorded at KBOO Community Radio in Portland, OR.
Coming on April 20, don’t miss our story and conversation with Liz Carlisle, author of Lentil Underground.
“At the Portland Mercado, our mission is to be that bridge between cultures, and… even within Latin America we have a lot of subcultures. We want to show Portlanders and the country that there is a huge diversity – in food, in music, in arts… and help entrepreneurs from our community.”
