Saturday Market June 23 – Fermentation for a Healthy Gut Biome

Fermentation has been a growing food trend for the last several years. To keep our gut biome happy, it’s important to send it new friends on a regular basis.
Yoghurt is probably the most commonly consumed fermented food; but there are so many other options out there!
Fermented vegetables are a healthy, storable way to get the wonderful nutrients from our gardens. Kefir and Kombucha are some fermented beverages that have gained a lot of popularity, and can be flavoured however you’d like.

We’ll be talking about countertop fermentation during this Show & Tell, what to watch out for, how to get started, and what tools you’ll need (hint: not much!). We have a couple of tricks for easy care of your new little buddies, and we’ll have samples of a few fermented recipes I started at home.


This event is part of a full lineup of Workshops and Show & Tell events throughout the Market Season. Get connected on your favourite social media network, or sign up for our email community to stay in the loop for the workshops you’re looking forward to. We’ll be posting the videos and key takeaways after each event, so if you miss the chance to be here in person, you can still gain the knowledge!

Bring (or submit) your questions, bring your tools, and we’ll give you our recommendations! The live feed will be on Facebook through the event and our business page, and we’ll update this post afterwards with the video feed.
