Number 1 Sons

Specialty/Food Artisan



Number 1 Sons is a brother and sister team making barrel fermented foods in Washington DC. Since 2012, they've combined regional ingredients with traditional preservation methods - natural fermentation and Virginia apple cider vinegar - to make timelessly tasty kimchi, pickles, kombucha + more. Their lineup of 20+ products change with the seasons - when they can no longer buy domestically grown pickling cucumbers, they source local daikon radishes for their winter pickles.

Looking to be a bit more green? Bring back their kombucha bottles rinsed - they reuse! Want a refill on your kimchi? Bring your own jar or bring one of their containers back for a refill + their BYOJ discount.

Number 1 Sons proudly serves 30+ farmers markets in DC, MD and VA + select restaurants.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Number 1 Sons will continue attending farmers markets but are no longer packing orders at the market. Instead we are selling prepacked containers of our most popular products and are also offering Market Pickup for special orders placed through our website.

Visit our website for more details on Market Pickup + Local Delivery options.
