12 Great Food Trucks That Will Cater Your Portland Wedding

View as Map

You can do the whole sit-down dinner thing, but if you want to give your wedding (or other big to-do) a truly Portland vibe, you might want to forgo the china and crystal and call up your favorite food truck.

They're not fancy, but they're usually far cheaper than full-service catering. And you if you have a large party, you can bring on a squadron and essentially have your own cart pod at your service.

Since the truck is part of the charm, we rounded up 12 favorites that will bring their meals on wheels to your party site.
