Even though blueberries will be the treat of the day, plenty of other food offerings can be found at Saturday’s Alabama Blueberry Festival hosted by the Greater Brewton Area Chamber of Commerce.
Festival organizers are making sure everyone’s appetite is satisfied with the offerings available this year.
The main attraction will be the traditional blueberry crunch, blueberry cobbler and blueberry ice cream prepared especially for the festival.
Those items will be available at the Chamber of Commerce space and will be available while supplies last.
Other locally produced foods will be available include slow-cooked pulled pork sandwiches from Pig Daddy’s BBQ. You can grab a bag of chips to go with the sandwich and don’t forget a bowl of the unmatchable Blueberry Bread Pudding.
Other festival treats will be provided by E&I Enterprises with U-squeeze lemonade, dipped frozen cheesecake-on-a-stick or frozen banana-on-a-stick, tamales, red beans and rice with sausage.
A Taste of Summer will be serving up fresh roasted corn for the event.
Wrighteous Eats will offer typical festival fare including cheeseburgers with fries, steak or chick philly sandwiches, buffalo chicken hoagies, nachos, loaded fries, fried tacos and funnel cake fries.
Jordan Valle Restaurant will be cooking up some fresh foods with a twist. Their offerings will include a Gyro pita, buffalo chicken pita, chicken shawerma pita, chidken tender pita, hamburger pita and chicken tender baskets. Vendors will have drinks available as well,
