Mixson Market to celebrate Blueberry Bonanza on Saturday

Mixson Farmers Market is hauling in blueberries by the bushel this weekend for its Blueberry Bonanza, an all-day celebration of the tiny antioxidant-bearing fruit. Several local food and bev businesses will serve up their blueberry-themed fares for the occasion, including Palmetto Brewery’s blueberry saison craft beer, Red Orchids and Aya Cookhouse’s freshly made blueberry ice cream, and Cannonborough Beverage Company’s sparkling blueberry vanilla soda. The local bluegrass and Americana group, the Deer Creek Sharpshooters, will perform live throughout the day. There will be a recipe contest and swap open to attendees, with local “celebrity” judges to choose winners in savory and sweet categories. Those interested in participating must enter online at www.mixsonmarket.com.
