Bad Bitches winds down first season with market, dinner

Bittermilk is among the vendors participating in the Artisan Market.

Prior to taking its show on the road, a new Charleston group dedicated to supporting and promoting female members of the Southeast food-and-beverage industry is holding two last local events, including an artisan market this Sunday.

Bad Bitches has raised $41,000 for culinary scholarships over the course of its decade-themed dinner series, which began in April. Its final dinner, featuring guest chefs Virginia Willis and Kristen Kish, is scheduled for Sept. 20.

“We are now in the 2000s, and it is the time of women artisans and chefs,” says co-founder Randi Weinstein. “A huge celebration!”

The five-course dinner is already sold out, but tickets remain to Artisans Market and Food Truck Brunch at Callie’s Biscuit House, 1895 F St. Two dozen vendors are scheduled to appear at the 11 a.m.-3 p.m. event, including Bulls Bay Saltworks, Cirsea Ice Cream, Jam Beverage Company and Bittermilk. Outta My Huevos is one of four purveyors selling brunch items.

Admission is by donation; the Bad Bitches suggest $10. According to Weinstein, the organization will soon unveil its scholarship application, and will host an event this December celebrating recipients. In the meantime, Bad Bitches is collaborating with the Pink Boot Society on an Oct. 26 dinner in Nashville.
