Learning today that the owners and operators of the Green Castle Food Cart Pod on NE 20th and Everett have notified the carts that the lot will be closing at the end of the month. It is our understanding that the lot couldn’t work out specific issues with the city to allow food vending on the lot even though it was a parking lot and the carts are mobile vehicles. Sad news for the carts and for all of the customers who have come to support them throughout the year.
I have learned that the Gaufre Gourmet will be moving downtown to SW 9th and Alder this coming weekend. Viking Soul Food and a brand new cart – SushiPDX – are moving to Good Food Here on SE 43rd and Belmont.
Not sure about the other carts on the lot – Gluten Free Chef, Hot Boxx, Diamond Thai, Bailey’s Gourmet Hot Dogs, Burger Guild and others. With such short notice, it may be a challenge to find a new location with winter on the way. If you’re a fan of these carts, go support them in this coming week and let them know how much you love what they serve.
