To refrain from the exhausted term “foodie”, I am a health food enthusiast who cooks and experiments in the kitchen as often as possible. With that said, I am excited to spotlight Party Cart, a local food cart that produces salivating gems like calamari chickpea tomato concasse with herbs. With 95% of their ingredients being locally sourced, they have earned outright street-cred and have set to open a brick and mortar in downtown Eugene.
I cannot wait to dive into what goes behind each masterpiece and share the ups and downs of moving from cart to storefront. I’m conducting preliminary research on the process of business expansion, looking towards Cornbread Café, a local restaurant that was previously a food cart. I’m meeting with the co-owner of Party Cart early this week and plan to capture their culinary prowess on camera while getting a gauge for where they are at in the expansion process.
Party Downtown, the new name apt for its location, is set to open on 8th and Olive in May. Party Downtown will share the space with another local favorite, Red Wagon Creamery. Follow my story on Twitter #PartyDowntown for food photos greater than any you’ve seen on Instagram and for information on what it takes to go from meals on wheels to sit-in dining.Tweets by @hannahedoyle
