Greater Portland is home to trend-setting restaurants, prolific produce, artisan food producers and a boundary-breaking beverage industry filled with world-class wineries, breweries, and distilleries. We love good food and drinks here and it’s no wonder why - there’s so much to choose from!
The Greater Portland region is known for food carts dotting the urban landscape, bringing an eclectic mix of flavors and cuisines from around the world. Many local chefs and noted food entrepreneurs have found their start in a food cart. From intricate salads featuring the finest fruit and veg from local farmers, to rich and tender barbecue brisket and tacos galore, there are over 500 food carts in the city of Portland alone, and even more in neighboring cities such as Beaverton and Vancouver.
Head outside of the city and you’ll understand why our food is so incredible. Greater Portland is home to farmland, grazing pastures, vineyards and fields of hops and wheat. It’s a bountiful place to fish, hunt and forage, and chefs, winemakers, beer brewers, butchers, bakers and home cooks find inspiration from our region’s bountiful array of ingredients. Diners here have a well-seasoned palate and are excited to try new flavors, making them an ideal test market for food innovation.
