While local farmers wait patiently for their rhubarb and asparagus stalks to breach the spring soil, townie urbaites look for their favorite food carts and beer gardens to reopen. While Bill’s Beer Garden braved the still-frosty climes to open last month, Mark’s Carts enters its 5th spring this month with a very similar lineup to last season. The seven returning vendors include Old Carolina Barbecue, Great Grilled Sandwiches, Xdelica (Chinese potstickers), Simply Spanish, El Manantial (Mexican), Revive and Replenish (sandwiches and salads), and Hut-k Chaats (Indian). San Street (Asian steamed buns and rice bowls) has graduated Mark’s Cart U and partnered with Zingerman’s for a brick-and-mortar—location TBD.

Mark’s Carts opens April 3. 211 W. Washington St
