This summer you will be able to find my at the Withrow Market every 2nd Saturday starting on May 19th, which I realized earlier this week is next weekend. Gulp...so much still to be done. Thankfully I spent the better part of the day in the Commercial kitchen today making more Pineapple Jam and Apple Earl Grey Jelly so I know that I will have enough for opening day. Alongside those two favourites, there will be Onion and Garlic Jam, Angry Pickled Garlic, Spicy Pickled Carrots, Orange Onion Jam with Sage and Thyme, Jalapeno Jelly, Ginger Jelly, Meyer Lemon Marmalade, Raspberry Jam...the list is long and I hope people love it.
Earlier this week I went to the Market meeting and met some of the fabulous people who bring this market to life for the people in the community. They volunteer doing things like making sure traffic doesn't get congested, that people know where to set up their stalls, that there is entertainment for kids, they take photos and this year there is talk of videos, they put up signs, circulate flyers, etc. If you live in the area you should really consider volunteering. Without the market, where would you get access to fabulous farmer's bringing you their fruits and vegetables as well as get great jams and jellies such as mine :).
I am really excited to be a part of it and hope you make it out one weekend this summer.
