The city of Beaverton is getting a pretty big food cart next month, and it’s from the offspring of the family that brought us Beaverton Foods’ horseradishes and mustards.

Dean Biggi, the grandson of pioneering horseradish farmer, Rose Biggi, is opening BG’s Food Cartel, a 31-cart food pod on 4250 SW Rose Biggi—the street named after his very own grandmother—on Friday, February 2.

According to restaurant consultant and Biggi family friend, Gregory Schillinger, the new pod will be home to a 4,500-square-foot heated and covered beer, wine, and cider bar, and will be ringed with carts from Ablya Grill, Belly Bar, and Thai Bloom, to name only a few.

As of now, 27 of the 31 cart lots have been spoken for, but there are a few still remaining.

When it opens later this week, the pod will operate from 11 am till 10 pm, Monday through Thursday, 11 am till 11 pm on Friday and Saturdays, and 11 am till 8 pm on Sundays. Some of the carts, Schillinger explained, will open at 7 am in time for breakfast and coffee. And he says the hours are likely to last longer once summer rolls around.
