Our fourth annual Fermentation Festival will be held on Sunday, August 28th from 10am-4pm at the Boston Public Market! Like previous Fermentation Fests, this year will be a *free* tour de fermentation composed of dozens of speakers, demos, small fermenting businesses & authors. See some of the main festival pieces above. 


One centerpiece of the fest will be our free communal crowd-sourced #KrautMob (sponsored by Boston Organics!) here everyone will be invited to make sauerkraut together under the guidance of local fermentation experts. 

Check out media from previous year to learn about the fest and RSVP on facebook here.
