A uniquely tasteful event will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, November 5th at the Madison County Cooperative Extension Center, 258 Carolina Lane. This family friendly event is free to attend, with proceeds benefiting the Beacon of Hope food pantry.

Local fermenters will be presenting their products. A few will be hosting demonstrations and sharing skills in preparing beneficial food like kraut, kimchi, kefir, kombucha, apple cider vinegar, chocolates, and pet food.

Vendors will share their products, information, and resources on the benefits of locally-grown fermented foods.

Madison County Brewing will ferment a special beer that will be sampled at the event and will be available for purchase at their downtown brewery.

Local musicians will perform Appalachian Jazz and Blues ballads; guest artists Alina Quu and Erica Joy Olsen will perform. A culture-swap, children’s crafts, and more will be on site.
