Fermented Foods Swap @ City Folk's Farm Shop

This is a FREE event hosted by City Folk's Farm Shop. We've been delving into making our own fermented food products recently, and it sounds like a great opportunity to meet and share with others who do as well. We'll probably be bringing some dairy kefir grains, and possibly some dried herbs or other goodies.

From the store website:

Bring in your cultures, home-fermented food, and home-made edibles to swap with others. Kombucha scobys, vinegar mothers, kefir grains, and sourdough starter will be popular. Bring along samples of the finished product or excess sauerkraut, sourdough bread, or kimchi to swap too. If you are not fermenting yet, bring home-made or home-dried foods like canned goods or dried herbs.

Janine Degitz Harris will be onsite to swap some of her favorite cultures and share her fermenting expertise. She has studied with Sandor Katz and will be available for discussion and questions concerning fermenting and its health benefits. Meet her at the shop from 1-2.

In this simple, friendly event, we will gather to look at the wares and make offers to one another. Please label your foods and be ready to share contact information and recipes.

In addition, they recommend sharing what you'll be bringing (if anything) on their Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/526718310672819

Depending on who is coming (and from where) we can arrange to carpool in order to make parking/transportation easier.

    It was great meeting you all at the fermented food swap. If you are interested in ongoing food swaps, I belong to the Cbus Food Swap and we do monthly swaps, usually homemade breads, eggs from backyard chickens, homegrown produce and canned jams/pickles, etc. Details on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/cbus...­

    Had a blast and it was really nice to meet Michael, Zachary, and May. Also met some really nice folks that might get involved in the group soon.

    Hi Matt,
    I'm driving a loaner and have unauthentic kimchi ready. I'm not sure exactly how the swap is going to take place. Is it to be on a buffet table for everyone to taste everything? If so, should I put it in a container for the table food (instead of in a jar or in several small jars) and bring disposable plates, & etc.?

      I have never been to this event before, and to be honest I had no idea how it works. :-) It seems they want you to bring along labeled samples of a finished product like Kimchi? And perhaps a way to share the recipe.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
