One of Portland’s hottest food cart pods is closing, being replaced with apartment complex

Published 6 years ago -  - 6y ago

One of Portland’s largest and most popular food cart pods is being evicted so developers can build a four-story apartment complex.

In a sad turn of events, all food cart owners will be forced to vacate the Tidbit Food Farm pod.  Tidbit is one of the most loved food cart pods in Portland, home to over 20 food carts.

Unfortunately, the Tidbit Food Farm will close its doors this October, as development for the 67-unit mixed use complex will begin.  The extremely popular food cart spot has been a huge draw in the Division street area bringing in hundreds daily.

Tidbit opened in October 2014 and their lease was reported by Eater to last at least five years, however the last day of business will likely be Sunday, October 8 pod co-founder Christina Davis tells Willamette Week.

The pod located at 28th Avenue and Division Street is easily the hottest food cart  spot in Portland, but due to increase housing development demand, you won’t be able to enjoy those awesome food carts anymore.

“We’re going to begin moving people off on October 11,” Davis tells Willamette Week.

Although the specific developer is undisclosed, at this time, TVA Architects submitted an application to build the four-story, 67-unit complex on this site.

October will be the move-out date for most cart owners as development should begin shortly after city and permit approval.

It’s truly unfortunate that TidBit is closing, but the increased demand for housing in Portland will inevitably continue to push out anything that occupies ground level property in areas like this.
