Cooling Down in Hot Weather

Scoop Handmade Ice Cream

Scoop Handmade Ice Cream

The first really hot weekend of summer is here. Forecasters are predictiong 80’s-90’s for Portland and beyond. Some people will stay inside, others will hit the rivers. I’ll be visiting food carts as I do. In the heat though, one will want something cool – maybe ice cream or shaved ice or a nice cold adult beverage. Here are some suggestions for cool treats at the food carts:

  • Scoop Handmade Ice Cream – North Station @ N Greeley and Killingsworth, Ala Carts @ SE 50th and Division, Central East Side Pod @ SE MLK and Washington
  • Fifty Licks Ice Cream – Good Food Here @ SE 43rd and Belmont
  • Mix ‘N’ Match Creamery fresh made ice cream made with liquid nitrogen – SW 3rd and Ankeny
  • Sideshow has soft serve ice cream at SW 9th and Washington
  • Moberi can make you a cool smoothie on a bike @ Rose City Food Park at NE 52nd and Sandy
  • Local Girls Hawaiian Shaved Ice @ Cartlandia at SE 82nd and Harney
  • Captured By Porches has beer for the adults in the crowd at Kruger Farms on N Lombard or at NE 23rd and Alberta

I’m excited to try some of the above. What’s your favorite cool treat from a cart?


  1. Ride my bike out to Cartlandia and have a brew in their family friendly outdoor beer and wine garden

  2. Mix ‘N’ Match Creamery is on SW 3rd, not SE.

  3. Also there is Herb’s shaved ice on 43rd & Belmont

  4. Herb has been open for a couple of weeks
