Welcome to the Red River Market blog! Here, we'll highlight the vendors, events, local food, and community that make our market happen. This weekend, we're pumped to have Fermentation on Wheels visiting the market!
If you would've told me to be excited about something called Fermentation on Wheels a couple months ago, I would've given you a (very) blank expression. What on earth?! Fermentation by definition is "the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms, typically involving effervescence and the giving off of heat." Sounds appetizing, right? But of course that process is responsible for amazing things like beer, wine, and kombucha! And more importantly (or rather, as importantly) it doesn't stop there. That's why Fermentation on Wheels is so great. They teach workshops to people across the country about creating fermented, pro-biotic foods like sauerkraut, vinegars, and more! So bring that cabbage to the market this weekend (or pick some up from on of our many produce vendors) because Fermentation on Wheels will be in Fargo this Saturday from 10am to 2pm on Broadway and 2nd Ave N!
See you there!
And to give you a teaser of what is possible through fermentation, here's a recipe they've shared on how to make your own Grapefruit Sage Vinegar! (So good.)
