In anticipation of the opening of the 2017 Collingwood Farmer’s Market I would like to pass on my excitement about a new guest vendor; Inspired Brews. Fermented foods like sourdough bread, sauerkraut, pickles, Korean kimchi and kombucha are the lasted craze for good gut health. In my past life I have made my own sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles and a sourdough starter for bread, however this beverage eluded me. Kombucha is a fermented beverage I had heard a great deal about especially from Al Roker on the Today Show. He frequently touted the immense benefits of this fermented beverage as he sipped from a “to go cup!” I was lucky enough to join David Hodges for a visit to local brick and mortar fermentary in Philadelphia called Inspired Brews. Run by a small group of amazing women this company brews small batch kombucha using local fresh ingredients. I was delighted to sample Philly Strawberries and Cream and Philly Rose Pomegranate. I was hooked after the very first sip! Luckily my local Whole Foods in Cherry Hill carries Inspired Brews on tap, so I am able to enjoy this heathy drink as well as try different brews. If you are a fan of the market as I am give Inspired brews a try!
