WWeek's Aaron Mesh writes the authoritative account on food cart culture, exploring the business side of things that's neither NYT-fawny or anti-city-building-dept.-angry. Among the things we've learned: Business at the Good Food Here pod has dropped "700%" since the cold winter months; the owners of Potato Champion, Whiffies, and Garden State are referred to as the "Food Cart Mafia" by other owners; the food cart trend of 2011: Truly mobile food trucks.
