Owner description: A walking tour of Portland's world class food cart scene led by Brett Burmeister, Managing Editor of FoodCartsPortland. The tour begins at one of the city's largest lots and goes from there. You'll learn the history of the carts, owner's unique stories, why it works in Portland and be able to try some of the tasty vittles they serve at 4 different vendors. More food than you expect. A fun time to explore Portland's street food scene.

Our tour with Brett was so great! He's a wealth of knowledge on the Portland food truck scene. He's also very interesting and engaging about Portland in general. He tailored our tour to our specific needs. We discovered foods and carts we wouldn't have tried on our own. I highly recommend this tour!

Brett was an excellent guide. He gave us lots of information into the food carts as well as into Portland politics, history, laws, etc. You get a understanding about how the city allowed the food cart industry to thrive in Portland. Great information about the people running the food carts as well as the efforts to cut down on garbage by using the GO Box. It was an excellent tour. Just the right amount of food to cover lunch.

As soon as I discovered that this tour was by the man considered to be Portland’s Food Cart Ambassador (as demonstrated by his presence at the recent World Street Food Congress in Singapore), I booked the tour for my wife and myself. It was brilliant. He not only showed us food carts in two neighborhoods, he was a font of knowledge about the history of food carts in Portland as well as the individual carts and chefs. We visited carts at the pod located at SW 9th Avenue and SW Alder as well as those in another nearby neighbourhood whose location I forget! We had a wide variety of food and a chance to talk to a number of the chefs.

We also discovered the GO Box, a durable reusable plastic container that is meant help prevent the nearly 60,000 containers used every month by food cart customers from going into landfill.

If you are interested in food carts, this is the tour you want.
