Normally, the arrival of warmer and sunnier days invites Portlanders to explore our food cart scene, where vegans and vegetarians can choose from vibrant veggie bowls, messy meatless barbecue sandwiches, and other animal-free snacks. However, dining at cart pods is not currently an option, due to the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing restrictions.

More meatless dining can be found on Eater’s guide of vegan and vegetarian restaurants offering delivery and takeout.Read More
