There's another player Portland's increasingly crowded field of purpose-built food cart parking lots. First there was Mississippi Marketplace
, then Refuel Station North
, then Dreamer's Marketplace
and now Crystal Food Garden, a new venture on North Lombard Street in St. Johns.
Where's that? Right between the Crystal Temple
and Big Kahuna's BBQ
. Crystal Food Garden began recruiting in April and, according to its website, has already landed four carts: Sisters ("European wraps, soups and salads"), a hotdog cart called Coney Carnage, sourdough pizza cart Pizza Contadino and Anya's Thai.
Will Portland ever reach food cart saturation? Evidently not.
