While we all know of my love for all things food, and my affinity for the local Food Trucks here in Portland, you might not know that I also love me a good food cart.

 

Having lived in Freeport for three years, one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday afternoon with my daughter, was to walk around the village window shopping and finish off the day with a hot dog from a food cart and an ice cream cone!

 

According to the Portland Press Herald, The number of food carts in Portland has exploded. The city has handed out 10 food cart licenses, more than double the number awarded three years ago.

 

Some unusual food truck items you could get include, popsicles, Japanese food and even creme brulee! So whether your on the go or looking to enjoy lunch outside, check out a food cart. And then, be sure to tell me about it so I can try it too!
