Bluewater Kitchen Catering & Events has a reputation for high-quality, farm fresh cuisine that has provided a catered menu for events from weddings to VIP tents to fashion shows. Now their delectable fare is available to everyone within driving distance of their new Upperville storefront, The Market at Bluewater.
“Almost every client we have catered for has fallen in love with our food,” owner and Chief Operating Officer Christina Kozich said. “The Market offers us the opportunity to share our menu on a daily basis – you don’t have to stop by fast food on the way home anymore. You can just stop in a grab a home-cooked dinner for the family.”
The Market offers entrees and sides that are made fresh daily. The focus is on high quality, farm-to-table options.
“People are looking for healthy, fresh options for their families, and they love the ability to pick it up and stick it straight in the oven for an easy, delicious meal.”
“We believe in supporting local farmers and knowing where your food is coming from,” Kozich said. And it’s not just for dinner! With all of the local activities you can enjoy in the area from polo and equestrian events to winery tours and sporting events, you can stop by and pick up a prepared basket on your way – no muss, no fuss! You can order a tailgate in a box (charged per person). You can also request wine, craft beers and bubbly with your order.
The Market has a hot order menu from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm daily. They also have a deli case where you can purchase by the pound. If you are picking up dinner for an event, they will even heat it up for you.
The kitchen at the Upperville location is the heart of the business serving both The Market and the catering sides. And while weddings are the bulk of the catering business, they have had the opportunity to showcase their offerings at Loudoun County’s 40 under 40 event at Stone Tower Winery, the fashion show for the Windy Hill Foundation and for the VIP tent for the Piper Cup at Banbury Cross Polo Club.
Kozich believes the key to their success is their willingness to be a part of the community and to meet the needs of locals and visitors alike.
