Both PortlandFood.org and Food Carts Portland report that Northeast's Green Castle cart pod, home to eight carts, is calling it quits at the end of the month after six months in business. According to FCP, "the lot couldn’t work out specific issues with the city to allow food vending on the lot even though it was a parking lot and the carts are mobile vehicles."
Cue the carts on the move. Yesterday, the popular Viking Soul Food tweeted that it will move to SE Belmont's Good Food Here pod in early November, joining former Green Castle cart Cackalacks, which decamped for the popular Belmont pod earlier this month. FCP reports that Gaufre Gourmet will move downtown, to the 9th and Alder pod, while Burger Guild promises to announce its new home — in a pod — this Wednesday.
