The Story:

Need some pizza? How about some farm fresh veggies? Cornucopia Joe’s has both.

Located at one of Portland’s premier food cart pods, Cornucopia Joe’s offers up fresh hand made pizza along with having a small market selling fresh local vegetables from his farm. Referred to as farmer Joe, he is truly a presence at the pod when he is there. Many a time, Joe has magnanimously rushed over to shake my hand and welcome me to the lot and even bring me one of his fresh smoothies when we’ve been there shooting an episode of one food show or another. Such a kind and generous individual.

At Cornucopia Joe’s, they have fresh hand made pizzas along with calzones, smoothies and juices. I could eat pizza daily of someone made it fresh for me; I’m that kinda of eater. The pizza at Joe’s isn’t perfectly round which tells me some love went into it. Add on a great sauce, fresh tomatoes, some Mozzarella and basil and you have the Margarita – a favorite in summer and a gem if found year around. We devoured it and put it on our list of go to pizza carts for the future.

Cornucopia Joe’s has made Good Food Here its home and I’m happy they continue to succeed. Come spring, keep an eye out for the fresh veggie and fruit stand. Drop on by, grab a pie and let them know Food Carts Portland sent ya.

  1. As a produce market, I like this guy. It’s super convenient to have someone selling a decent selection of fresh veggies in the neighborhood. As a pizza chef, he’s just not very good. The cardboard-like crust and thin sauce are reminiscent of my mom’s poor attempts to make homemade pizza back in the 80s, when decent ingredients were tougher to come by. The price is right, though – $7 for a large pizza that will feed two or three fairly hungry people. Just remember, you get what you pay for.

  2. Definitely agree with the last comment. The owner is very nice and dedicated. However, when I think bad pizza in a town of so many choices, this cart comes to mind.

  3. The best Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich in Portland … sumptious!!!

  4. I have eaten twice at Joes and each time have been completely satisfied. The Philly sandwich has lots of very tasty meat and great bread. Later, a small pizza that would easily feed two people. A combo of sausage, tomatoes, oinions, peppers and black olives with a very good sauce and a crust that was not too thin or too thick. A piece literally melted in your mouth! This guy aims to please…nice!!

    Best $7 ever spent had me, my father, and my mother completely fed on an ENORMOUS vegan calzone: daiya, mozarella, broccoli, sorta sausage, and zucchini. Simply can’t beat it.

  6. I had a mango juice and a pizza. It was absolutely superb! When my dad ordered the veggie wrap he agreed. It’s a very good place and a must go-to for anyone in Portland!

  7. I have to agree on the crust. The folks are seriously nice, and I give them props for everything (they sold chanterelles last fall!). I went in to try a pizza, and she dolled it up a bit for free since it was my first time. But, the pizza was simply average, I hate to say. Crust was on the thick side, slightly doughy. I will try them again and ask for it more well done. I want some char on the crust, especially including the bottom.
