Mississippi Avenue Food Truck Pod

Providing access to quick and healthy meals, Portland’s food carts have used vacant lots and empty parking lots during the economic downturn, bringing life (and food) to the streets of Portland. But as developers begin building again, food carts all over the city are slowly being ousted.

Even though they can move, people need to know how to find them. It’s a balancing act—the transitory, freewheeling aspect of the food carts versus the nitty-gritty reality of running a business. Wherever they land, local start-up vendors provide local, fresh food to adventurous eaters without the cost of opening a full-scale restaurant.
