Fun With Fermentation Festival

On Saturday, January 15, Willamette Valley Sustainable Foods Alliance hosts the second annual Fun With Fermentation Festival.

Last January, WVSFA hosted the first Fun with Fermentation Festival at the WOW Hall. The event drew over 400 people, who enjoyed sampling locally produced fermented foods and learning about fermentation processes from food producers and workshop presenters. We collected two barrels of food donations and raised over $2000 for FOOD for Lane County.

We plan to do it again this January the 15th from noon to 5:00 pm. We will be welcoming back presenters Christina Sasser and Jason Carriere, who will share about the history and benefits of fermentation, vegetable ferments and alcohol ferments. We are very excited to also have Andhi Reyna presenting on goat cheese and goat yogurt this year.

In the back lot, Devour and Viva Vegetarian Grill will be serving up hot meals with fermented ingredients, yum!

We will have a raffle again this year, so remember to bring your dollars to enter to win great prizes donated by local businesses while supporting a good cause.

If you are a local food business that makes or uses fermented ingredients, please contact for information about tabling at our event.

SHOWTIME: Noon – 5:00 PM, PRICE: $10-20 or $5 with 2 cans of food; 12 and under free.
