Have you ever wanted a tour of the carts?
Have questions about Portland’s Food Cart scene that you want answered?
Want to eat at some of Portland’s best carts at the recommendation of Food Carts Portland?
Now you can. We offer tours of the carts hosted by Brett Burmeister, owner and managing editor of Food Carts Portland. Brett has been chronicling and tracking the food carts since 2008 and has become the defacto food cart ambassador for Portland. With his knowledge of the carts, their history and their stories, a tour with Brett is both fun and informative. Current cart owners have taken the tour prior to opening as a way to introduce themselves to Portland’s scene and learn as much as they can from Food Carts Portland. Oh, and we stop at a few carts to eat some of the best treats they have to offer.
