RICHMOND, Va - Science shows that eating pickled and fermented foods can have health benefits. You can preserve  the season's fresh vegetables when you ferment them and you'll find everything from vegetables to fruit at the "1st Annual Pickled and Fermented Festival."

Ashley Ray and Larkin Garbee from the Artisan Pickle Club filled us in on the event taking place on Saturday, May 14 at 1 p.m. at Center of The Universe Brewing Company in Ashland.

"We're still looking for pickled or fermented vendors (pickles, kimchi, sauerkraut, sourdough bread, etc) and entries for our pickle competition," Ray said.
