I was so excited to attend this grand opening celebration at the new Portland Mercado. A project of Hacienda CDC and a variety of community partners, it's the first Latino public market in Portland. The market space is beautiful, inviting, and the new highlight of the area. The celebration was a joyous event featuring musicians and dancers, and I especially enjoyed having the chance to meet several of the business owners who have worked so hard to participate in the Mercado. I'm looking forward to returning often to support these local businesses.
