Thanks to Heidi and Jessica, our lovely tour guides, for providing facts and fun about the food cart world of Portland on the two food cart tours I went on, and for all the owners who took the time to step out of their cart to talk about their cartpreneurship challenges and victories. I think my stomach might need a rest from another day of multi-hour sampling, but I would recommend any of their food tours to any visitors of Portland or those who live in Portland and want to explore lots of little bites and learn about food culture- be it the food cart culture like these tours, or neighborhoods. Forktown Tours covers the Alphabet District (Northwest 23rd area I think, which is more trendy) and North Portland (Alberta/Miss neighbohoodish which is more artsy) areas on walking tours on Thurs and Sat. Heidi and Jessica were very gracious, knowledgeable, and thoughtful- making sure everyone gets a sample, that we were hydrated and always gathered around to hear the food owner, making sure we had napkins and forks and wet naps and carrying Tums just in case. It is obvious they love food, love Portland, love spreading that love as if you were their own friend visiting them from out of town. Check them out!
