Stroll hosts Fermented Food Fair

BRATTLEBORO — Strolling of the Heifers is hosting its first-ever Fermented Food Fair on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 18 and 19, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, at the River Garden on Main Street.

This event is free and open to the public and will feature a wide array of fermented, pickled, and preserved food for purchase. From kombucha to kimchi, salsa to sriracha, pickles to preserves - if it's in a jar, can, or bottle you'll find it here.

“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,” Orly Munzing, founder and executive director of the Stroll, said in a news release. “Pickling and fermenting are great ways to get nutrient-rich food in the winter. Plus it's really delicious!”

“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! Some vendors will be selling equipment for home pickling and fermenting too.”
