Since 2014, the Austin Fermentation Festival has brought together anyone and everyone who loves cheese, beer, charcuterie, kombucha, kimchi, chocolate and every other fermented food.
The event, a production of the Texas Farmers Market at Lakeline and Mueller, returns on Sunday, Oct. 21, and this year, the festival has a new venue: the Central Library and Seaholm EcoDistrict lawn, 710 W. Cesar Chavez St.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. n Sunday, you'll find more than a dozen workshops on fermented food and beverages from Texas Cider Keeper, Hector Gonzalez, Kate Payne and Srsly Chocolate's Bob Williamson, as well as samples from local chefs and vendors. They'll have live music and a silent auction, too.

The event is free to attend, but there is a $10 suggested donation to attend the workshops in the library and on the lawn. Proceeds benefit the Texas Farmers’ Market Farmer Emergency Fund, which offers financial assistance to TFM farmers and ranchers in times of environmental, personal or other crisis.
