PORTLAND - This weekend there's a rare opportunity to find some of the best food carts in the city -- all in one place.

Willamette Week’s Eat Mobile takes place at OMSI’s north parking lot Saturday evening. The event features dozens of Portland’s favorite food carts, along with local music and other vendors.

“(The Carty Award) is an honor for them and a lot of the past recipients have moved on to multiple food carts, they’re very successful, it’s just something they can wear with pride,” Willamette Week’s Carrie Henderson said.

General admission is $20 and includes samples from each cart. A small number of pre-tasting tickets at $50 will also be available.

“Theres so many different people from different parts of the country that come here and bring their food from that area, so it’s really cool to see all the different kinds of food that you can get here … to be a part of that is really awesome,” Alex Pekar of Bunk Sandwiches said.
