"Mississippians— Prepare for farmers market-fresh Mexican food

One of Portland's best known Mexican food options, Verde Cocina started in Portland's farmers markets, and the relationship has never dwindled. Owners and husband and wife Noé and Anna Garnica still serve its gluten-free chilaquiles and gringas con molé bolstered by produce and meats from local farms—not to mention their own hand-made corn tortillas. Now, Verde Cocina tells Eater it's opening its fourth brick and mortar at 3746 N Mississippi Ave, in the former home of now-shuttered North Light.

'We've been looking for a place on the east side for a long time—since right after we opened our first location five years ago,' Anna tells Eater. The Garnicas aren't ready to release an opening date but do report the fourth Verde Cocina should open mid June."
