The 2015 event will host 35+ vendors of non-alcoholic, artisan fermented foods and Founded beverages. Try traditional fermented foods like kimchi and dill pickles, along with unexpected ferments like cultured condiments and salsas. 

The list of classes for this years event includes making cultured salad dressings, nukazuke pickles and miso. There is something for everyone from beginners to fermentation masters. Join Todd from Happy Girl Kitchen to learn to make incredibly delicious and traditionally soured dill pickles or Alex Lewin, author of Real Food Fermentation to learn how to make a richly colored, earth tonic known as beet kvass.
