Portland Timbers Food Cart Alliance

The Portland Timbers are excited to annouce the new Portland Timbers Food Cart Alliance (PTFCA), a free, cross-promotional program designed to highlight the Rose City’s vibrant food cart culture. Through the PTFCA, select Portland-area food carts will have the opportunity to serve their food items on Timbers match days at JELD-WEN Field.

Starting in August, the Timbers will feature a different PTFCA food cart at each home match at JELD-WEN Field through the remainder of the 2012 regular season. The food carts selected to serve at Timbers games will be determined by an online fan poll, with the top vote-getters having the chance to serve their signature items as the featured food cart on match day.
