Former Ford showroom hosts Mercado Guadalajara

Mercado Guadalajara

Mercado Guadalajara

If you’re driving around, cast an eye west of Rosauer’s at the building that used to be the showroom for the former Ford and Chrysler dealerships. It’s now home to the Mercado Guadalajara Carniceria & Panaderia.

Say wha’? OK, all you Spanglish speakers and wannabe fluent types, it’s a Mexican market. Fresh butcher case with all sorts of popular Mexican meat cuts. And a bakery, kicking out Mexican pastries. Get there early, because by mid-afternoon, the goodies are gone.

The shelves are stocked with all sorts of product that will appeal to Hood’s large Latino population, and those of us who love Mexican cooking, and like the growing availability of ingredients at Rosauer’s, Safeway, and more to the point, the nearby Juanita’s Marketa.

I’m hoping the Mercado becomes a place where you (we) can buy fresh goat. This omnivore says, Bring it on. (Otherwise, you have to drive to Fubon in Portland to getcher goat. Get … your … goat — get it? Oh, never mind.)
