We hope you’ve been enjoying this year’s fermentation festival, learning a lot about the joys of fermentation and how it plays a part in our complex diets! One of the many ways to enjoy fermentation is to use it as a method of preserving the seasonal harvest so that it can be stored safely for months. It is a great option for bumper crops — many of our farmers do just that and sell their delicious pickled and fermented products at the market! Why not use this weekend to dive a little deeper into the goods on our farmers’ tables and enjoy pickles, kimchi, kraut, and more? Read below to learn about some of our farmer favorites!
