Come visit the Decorah Farmers Market on Saturday, October 22 from 8am to 11AM for a special new event: PressFest. This event was inspired by the arrival of the new Driftless Mobile Juicing Unit and is a celebration of the press, and all things apple!
The unit is a self-contained travel trailer full of the equipment needed to allow any orchard in Northeast Iowa to make and sell pasteurized or unpasteurized juice from a variety of fruits. The pasteurized juice will be safe for drinking and the unpasteurized will be available for crafting hard ciders.
PressFest will also include kids activities, mobile juicing unit ‘show and tell’, apple demonstrations by Seed Savers Exchange, an “Apple Advice” booth, live music, tastings by Convergence CiderWorks, demonstrations by Seed Savers Exchange, Savannah Institute, and more.
Regular market vendors will be there with fresh fruit including apples and other apple-themed fares and gifts.
