It’s all about the blueberry at Mixson Farmers Market’s Blueberry Bonanza. GrowFood Carolina will be bringing in blueberries by the bushel for this event, a day-long celebration with live music, fresh fare, and lots of blue-smeared faces.

Palmetto Brewery specially crafted blueberry saison will be available for purchase along with Cannonborough Beverage Company’s sparkling blueberry vanilla soda. Kelly Chu of Aya Cookhouse and Red Orchids will be scooping up some freshly made blueberry ice cream, and the Mixson Farmers Market will be up and running with a variety of fresh produce and wares for purchase.

Attendees are invited to participate in a recipe contest and swap. Recipes can be savory or sweet, and celebrity judges will be on hand to judge the winner in each category along with a best overall. The contest is limited, but everyone is welcome to swap their best blueberry recipes at the event and on Mixson Farmers Market’s Facebook page.

 The Deer Creek Sharpshooters, a local five-piece band, will be playing their eclectic mix of bluegrass, jazz, and psychedelia throughout the afternoon.
