"Greensboro, NC - The Greensboro Farmers Curb Market, 501 Yanceyville St., will be hosting Gritty Blues out on the lawn, Saturday April 23, 2016 beginning at 8 am. This tasty event will honor two southern staples, grits with a side of blues!
Chef Felicia McMillan of Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen will be preparing a southern array of toppings from foods grown by local vendors that will top a piping hot bowl of Old Mill of Guilford Grits. Patrons will get to choose from tomato chutney, collard slaw, tasso ham, Neese’s Country Sausage & bacon, kale, sweet potato butter, Goat Lady Dairy cheese, and a creamed honey as toppings.
The cost of the Gritty Blues breakfast is $5 per bowl, while supplies last. This exclusive menu is specially prepared for market patrons from ingredients found within the farmers market therefore toppings will be limited in supply and available for first come, first serve.
