Dorothy Lane Market goes whole-hog for this weekend’s Bacon Fest

Dorothy Lane Market says its “joy for bacon runs so deep” that it will once again host its annual Baconfest this weekend, featuring free samples of several different specialty products and dishes that will all have one smoky, salty, eminently crave-able ingredient in common.

There will be a bacon brew to wash down the salted pork.

Baconfeset 2018 is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 27-28, and at all three Dorothy Lane Market stores: in Oakwood, Washington Twp. and Springboro.

Each store will have multiple “sampling stations” for products such as DLM Maple Bacon Gelato, Terrapin Ridge Farms Hot Pepper Berry Bacon Jam, Stonewall Kitchen Boozy Bacon Barbecue Sauce, and Kettle Brand Maple Bacon Potato Chips — as well as straight bacon.

Baconfest was launched five years ago “because we were having a terrible winter that year and everyone, including ourselves, were suffering from cabin fever,” Jack Gridley, DLM’s vice president of meat and seafood, told this news outlet last year. “It seemed like an event that would appeal to the sensory part of the brain and stimulate everyone to come out and gather over the great aromas of bacon.”
