The French Quarter is always happy to accept applications for food carts should a space become available.  Please be sure to read through all the following information, emails asking questions that are answered below will make us cry :(    THANK YOU!


WHAT TYPE OF FOOD CART ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? We are willing consider any and all cuisine except anything that directly competes with our current food carts.

WHAT IS THE RENT? Rent currently starts at $750 per month with possible increases if additional storage is needed.

WHAT DOES THE RENT INCLUDE? Rent includes garbage and fresh water (tenants are responsible for disposal of grey water) .  Rent also includes large indoor and outdoor seating areas plus 3 restrooms accessible to all customers.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE A FOOD CART?  Choosing a food cart is not based on a first come first served basis, we make the decision solely on what we feel would be a good fit for the French Quarter and Multnomah Village.

DO I HAVE TO PROVIDE SAMPLES OF MY FOOD BEFORE I AM CHOSEN? Sometimes, particularly if a business is new, and if we are not able to get an idea from places like yelp, we will request some samples to make sure we feel the product is a good fit for the French Quarter.

SHOULD I STILL SEND AN EMAIL EVEN IF THERE ARE NOT CURRENT AVAILABLE SPACES? Yes, we keep a list of interested food carts and should a space open up we refer back to that list.

HOW DO I APPLY TO HAVE A MY FOOD CART AT THE FRENCH QUARTER? Please email the following information to  If we feel your cart might be a good fit, then someone will be in touch.
