PORTLAND, OR – With some of Portland’s most beloved downtown food cart pods on the chopping block, the world of Portland food carts has been in a state of flux. Now two pods boasting some of the city’s most popular food carts will close by September 1: The Gantry Food Carts at Zidell Yards and the Cubby Hole, located on NE Alberta and 15th.

This pod at NE Alberta and 15th is home to four food carts, including one of the hottest food carts in the city, Desi PDX, and the Oregonian’s best new food cart of 2017, Gumba. But it appears the new property owners have other plans: According to multiple sources, the carts were given seven weeks notice that they must vacate the property by September 1.
