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.
