As Todd Price of the Times-Picayune observes, "A poboy loaf and a pint of beer are like two twins that took different paths through life. On Sunday, October 25th, SoFAB and Hollygrove Market and Farm team up to explore fermentation their first joint cooking event, FARMentation. The entire day will be devoted to showcasing new and interesting ideas for using the fall produce that will be showing up in the Hollygrove produce boxes.

Aaron Hyde from Brewstock will be there with his home-brewing equipment, making satsuma beer, Jim Bremmer will have an herb-crafting and kombucha demonstration, and Mary Dixie, the Pastry Chef at Emeril's, will make yeasted breads. Tastings are included!

Hollygrove Market is a non-profit enterprise that seeks to put local and fresh organic produce into the hands of the Hollygrove and New Orleans communities. What can be grown onsite in the growing farmland is sold in the market, but other suppliers are also found through backyard growers, community gardens, urban micro-farms in New Orleans, and rural farms throughout southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Every Saturday they hold a CSA-style market and boxes of produce are sold to the public. This event will help support the market as well as the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in their efforts to promote food knowledge and enjoyment.
