Winter is the time to appreciate all the ways we preserve food. From kombucha to kimchi, salsa to sriracha, pickles to preserves – if it’s in a jar, can or bottle you’ll find it here! This tastebud-tingling event is free and open to the public. Come to the River Garden to learn about and purchase a wide array of fermented, pickled and preserved food!
“Preserving food is a huge part of farming and farmsteading and there are so many entrepreneurs in our region making beautiful creative products from locally farmed food,” Said Orly Munzing, Founder and Executive Director of the Stroll, “Pickling and fermenting are great ways to get nutrient-rich food in the winter. Plus it’s really delicious!” she added.
“People will be able to sample and buy pickled veggies, kimchi, sauerkraut, jam, and so much more,” said Vicki Friedman, the River Garden’s coordinator, “We’ll have maple syrup, yogurt, salsa and sriracha, and even black garlic!” She added, “Some vendors will be selling equipment for home pickling and fermenting too.”
