Support a Black-owned business for Pedalpalooza’s Food by Bike day

Posted by on June 1st, 2020 at 9:47 am

Today is the first day of the pandemic-era Pedalpalooza, an experiment in “separate but together” bike fun. According to the official calendar, the theme of the day is Food by Bike.

The theme can be interpreted all types of ways: coffee outside, a picnic, grabbing take-out by bike, discovering a new food cart, dressing up like a hot dog, or whatever else you can dream up.

It also seems like a great way to play Pedalpalooza today would be to do so while also supporting Portland’s Black-owned eateries. From Deadstock Coffee in Old Town to 42nd Avenue Fish & Chips in Cully, our city has an enticing array to choose from.

Here’s an idea: If you’re itching to grill-by-bike, swing into Cason’s Fine Meats on NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and grab something to add to your BBQ (whether it’s on your bike or your porch). Cason’s sells all your favorites from Carlton Farms, Cedar River Farms, and Zenner.

For more ideas check out the directory on ILoveBlackFood.com. And make sure to share your foodie finds online by tagging #PedalpaloozaPDX and #FoodByBike.

Have fun, stay safe, and support our community!

Great idea and I’m excited to learn about a butcher in my neighborhood. FYI though- Cason’s website says they aren’t open on Mondays.

Culture on Hawthorne is one of the few restaurants on Hawthorne hesitant about trading parking for bike lanes. If you stop there, let them know you arrived by bike!

We got take-out fish ‘n chips from 42nd Ave Fish and Chips in Northeast, just south of Killingsworth. Great fried fish and hush puppies.
