United Supermarkets, Market Street & Amigos launch second annual Bacon Fest, a month of everything bacon

LUBBOCK, Texas – United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos locations across Texas launch their second annual Bacon Fest — a month where bacon takes its rightful place in the spotlight.

Bacon Fest will run until May 24 and, throughout that time, each location will be providing a huge selection of bacon-related products. Of course, guests can always look for their typical package of bacon — traditional or gourmet. However, there will be special bacon creations across the store from the bakery to the meat market.

Some of the featured bacon items making an appearance during Bacon Fest will be bacon mac and cheese, bacon cookies, chocolate-covered bacon and more.

“We are so excited to launch our second annual Bacon Fest,” said Scott Nettles, director of meat and seafood for the United Family. “From bacon cookies to bacon-wrapped items to put on the grill, Bacon Fest is going to give us an opportunity to remind everyone of the great ways they can use bacon as well as some ways they may not have thought of before. Some say you can’t buy happiness, but we have created some incredible new bacon items and we hope that will get you pretty close!”

*This could provide for a fun lifestyle story or segment. We can help facilitate that throughout the month.*
