The Red River Market, downtown Fargo’s newest farmers market, is thrilled to welcome Fermentation on Wheels is a grassroots organization that provides free food education and inspires people through workshops, literature, & visual arts projects that raise awareness about food sustainability alongside teaching fermentation.
Fermentation on Wheels’ founder, Tara Whitsitt, converted a 1986 International Harvester school bus into a fermentation lab and workshop space and departed from Eugene, Oregon in 2013. Whitsitt’s travels will bring her to Fargo on Saturday, August 8th, where she will provide tours of the bus and teach live sauerkraut demos.
Fermentation on Wheels is a grassroots organization that provides free food education and inspires people through workshops, literature, & visual arts projects that raise awareness about food sustainability alongside teaching fermentation. The community organizes potlucks and teaches fermentation in a school bus that has been converted into a creative kitchen and workshop space. These events also serve as a way to bridge communities and restore a genuine fascination and interest in local, traditionally-preserved foods.
Fermentation on Wheels gives people the tools to consume foods more thoughtfully and also provides communities with resources on how to get involved in the food movement. By traveling the country, visiting farmers and connecting them with consumers, we hope to make a powerful statement and emphasize the importance of strong, sustainable food practices and values.
The Red River Market is open every Saturday through October (or as the food producing season permits) from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on 2nd Ave. N. and Broadway.
