Lil’ America is a food court pod with a mission:

To bring fresh cultural flavor to Inner SE Portland. Located at SE 10th & Stark, this bright new project will feature diverse small businesses, indoor/outdoor seating, and event space.

Win Win spearheads this project with their core values of inclusivity, diversity, equity, empathy, and community, emphasizing amplifying BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ voices.

Lil’ America will be a vibrant and eclectic collection of cultures and communities that the Central Eastside has been missing. It offers a new and unique space for vendors to share their stories in a fun, welcoming fashion. Seeking to bring in four to eight varieties of food carts. You can expect bright flavors, diverse influences, exciting offerings, and above all, a strong community. Currently, applications to join are open on Win Win’s website. The space will feature murals created by Nina Chanel Abney, plus outdoor event staging.

Lil’ America is an elevated food cart experience with running water, full restroom facilities, handwashing stations, and vendors’ dry and cold storage options. It will open in the early fall of 2022 in the Buckman neighborhood on SE 10th & Stark.

Lil’ America patrons can enjoy year-round indoor seating via the much-anticipated Fracture Brewing taproom adjacent to the food cart pod.
