Boston hosts 2nd annual pickle fair
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Pickle Fair is back and it’s kind of a big dill.
The second annual event is scheduled for Saturday at the Innovation and Design Building in the city’s Seaport District.
The fair is a family-oriented celebration of all things fermented — pickles, kimchi, sauerkraut and other vegetables.
It’s an opportunity to sample pickle products from more than a dozen local and national vendors. The more adventurous can try pickle-flavored items including ice cream, cotton candy and beer.
The event also features country fair-style games, live music, food trucks and a beer garden.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Farm Aid, the Cambridge-based nonprofit that since 1985 has been supporting family farms.
The event runs from 11 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
