On Saturday, November 2, The Market Shops will host its 5th Annual Bloody Mary Festival benefiting Habitat for Humanity – Walton County. The annual event will feature unlimited tastes of the area’s most creative and innovative bloody marys and served by the finest restaurants and bars on the Emerald Coast.
A panel of select food critics and local celebrities will judge each bloody mary to select the winners for the most delicious and most creative. There will also be a highly coveted People’s Choice Award that is selected by each guest in attendance.
