To bed at 2am after a long day. Up at 6:30am. Load up coolers, load up car. Pick up partner in crime (so to speak). Arrive at the Salem Public Market slightly before 8am. Set up the display by 8:30am, which turned into a very nice rainbow fo colors. Chatted with other vendors and learned a lot. Sampled about three pints worth of Sauerchi between 9am and 1pm. Said hi to dozens of people. Helped make several sales for the Salem Food Co-op. Bartered with other vendors. Drank too much coffee. Returned wired. Put everything away. Todo list followup. CRASH.
The most memorable quotes from the day…a very engratiating and humbling reception!
(after first bite) Wow…oh my God!
You should be here every week. You’ll be here next week, right?
[Do you want a receipt?] No, I want a spoon!
I didn’t think I liked pickles for 49 years!
With Saueressen, you can eat the rainbow for all the health benefits it entails. No food coloring added — it’s all from the ingredients themselves! As flavorful as they are colorful, too!

“I don’t like kraut…but I like this!”
“I’m typically not a squash person, but this is pretty good”
“I don’t like eggplant. This can’t be eggplant.”
We bought one of everything that he has out right now and it’s amazing. One of my favorites is the Thanksgiving Cranberry Kraut. For anyone who enjoys gourmet sauerkraut, this one is awesome.
We are the lucky friends that got to preview the KaleChi. For anyone who likes Kale and is adventurous, this one is a winner. It has a tangy flavor that bounces off your taste buds. Per Abe, “I think it’s his best one yet.” Well, I rather enjoy them all so not willing to pick “one” winner. They are all winners.
Saueressen offers a variety of delicious, complex flavored fermented foods. A few of my favorites to date are the Thanksgiving Kraut (crunchy, tangy with a hint of sweetness from the cranberries), and the CBC Chi (mild flavor with a hint of ginger – yummy!).
