[PDX] Source for Brazilian groceries, farinha, etc?

sambamaster Jun 4, 2008 12:49 PM

I'm a newbie here in Portland [sue me, I'm not from California, at least!!!! :-) ] and am looking for a source for Brazilian chow items like farinha de mandioca, sucos, pimenta, etc. Any pointers, especially on the Eastside? Probably hidden inside another genre of Latino market, or even an alert Asian market.

Thanks for any clues.

    there used to be a little brazilian grocery store/travel agency around 52nd (?) and university ave in the u-district. there is also a place off I-405 between kirkland and redmond. i left seattle over a year ago, so it might not be there anymore...

        Not yet. Someone at Brazil Grill (?) told me of a Latino grocery somewhere east about 180th or further, never went. Found farinha de mandioca at an Ethiopian store on Glisan (around NE 30th) called Dashen, they also have Malaysian dende (red palm oil, at least). But no maracuja, caju, malagueta, etc....

          Try the market World Foods

          They have the usual stuff, like Yoki products.
