Portland has a larger-than-life food scene, and now, a new food cart pod is getting a made-in-McMinnville sculpture that finally recognizes our culinary culture’s massive ambitions. A giant, 37-foot-tall stainless steel fork—the world’s largest, pending Guinness certification—is coming to the little city of Fairview in Eastern Multnomah County, where it’ll welcome visitors to its new food cart pod, the Fairview Food Plaza.
The fork will be installed from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Feb 15, so head over quickly if you’d like to be one of the first to catch a glimpse of those shiny tines. Or wait until April when the 16-cart pod is scheduled to open, including an outdoor plaza, a children’s play area, outdoor covered seating, and an indoor dining area with space for food vendors.
The plaza is also scheduled to host farmers markets beginning in June.
