Fermentation workshops and demos traveling by wagon.


Ferment Pittsburgh is a project created to influence the growth of fermentation culture in our area. We offer classes, put on the annual Pittsburgh Fermentation Festival, and sell various ferments on a small scale. Please contact us with any questions regarding fermentation and culturing, whether you need advice or are looking for some starters.

Next event,


  • Spend the afternoon with other fermenters.
  • Make your own krauts and kimchi for the winter with local, organic produce.
  • Bring your current projects to share, or get help troubleshooting.
  • All levels of experience welcomed, if never made a ferment before, we’ll be there to guide you along.
  • Bring a dish to share for an autumn potluck.
  • Workshops throughout the day, schedule coming soon.
  • FREE to attend! (Some money to make stuff though.)
