About this event

The St. John’s Farmers’ Market presents the opportunity for a hands-on workshop experience making mixed fruit jam and quick canning it in sealed bottles!

This is a FREE event. Registration is required and spaces are very limited.

For this, each participant will need to bring one (1) pound of clean, washed fruit. It can be any kind of fruit or berries at all. Whatever you like best.

We will provide jars, tools, sugar and pectin for the jam, to be made from all the fruit. Each person will go home with their very own homemade jar of jam.

No previous experience needed.

Registration through Eventbrite here.

*WORKSHOPS ARE FULL*

In recent years he has been supplying local chefs and producers of beer and spirits with natural ingredients for unique new products. As a vendor at the St. John’s Farmer’s Market, he is well known for his wild gathered mushrooms, berries and wild greens. His foraging walks and local food workshops are very popular.
