Our N Mississippi Ave. shop is in the heart of Portland's historic Mississippi District, surrounded by many of the city's finest restaurants and cafes, independently owned shops, cutting edge music venues, and more.
Our first store, N. Mississippi Ave. opened in the spring of 2006 out of shared love of food and travel. We picked the shop's location on Mississippi Avenue in North Portland for its unmistakable air of community mindedness and for the irreproachable collection of rag-tag businesses that had sprouted there: a bakery, a coffee roaster, a few bars and restaurants, a carpenter, a lumber yard, and the world's leading lightbulb store. The shop's name was chosen because we wanted to create a place that felt like coming home, where personal connections and sensual pleasures welcome you. Spend time amidst beautiful fresh cut flowers, taste strange and enticing foods, and explore the astonishing depth of the elemental ingredients.
