February Jam Club Flavors

Now that we’re in the heart of marmalade season, our Jam Club members are receiving some yummy citrus flavors!

February’s delicious Jam Club flavors were:

We also have new marmalades to bring to the farmers’ market for our Bay Area customers. On drizzly days like we’ve been having, there’s nothing like a bit of marmalade with your morning tea to help you perk right up!

All Markets (Grand Lake 2/19 and Temescal 2/20):

Hope everyone stays warm and dry this weekend!

Market Flavors – January 15 & 16

Happy Friday! January is going well for BCF: we’re very much looking forward to replenishing our marmalade supply over the next few months. We’ve been scheming about citrus all week long!

Now, for this weekend’s farmers’ market flavors.

All Markets (Grand Lake 1/15 & Temescal 1/16):

Can’t wait to see you at the market this weekend!

Market Flavors: 12/11 + 12/12

We can hardly believe how quickly December is going — Hanukkah’s already behind us, and there are only two weekends until Christmas. Of course, we’re particularly excited about our holiday party this Tuesday (12/14) as well!

Don’t forget, this weekend is extra special because we’ll be at the Noe Valley Farmers’ Market on Saturday, as well as the Kensington Farmers’ Market on Sunday! We’ll have lots of extra jam with us for your holiday entertaining and gifting needs.

All Markets (Noe Valley + Grand Lake 12/11, Temescal + Kensington 12/12):

Mmm, we have a little bit of everything for the markets this week! Just as we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving time, we thought we’d bring out some of our summertime favorites — like Golden Sweet Apricot Jam.

Noe Valley Farmers’ Market!

Hi San Francisco! Guess what? We’ll be in your neck of the woods during the holiday season!

We will be returning to the Noe Valley Farmers’ Market for three days during the holiday season: Saturday November 20th, Saturday December 11th, and Saturday December 18th! This market is one of our absolute favorites, and we hope you will come by to say hello and let us help you with some holiday gift-giving ideas.

Thanks to the Noe Valley Farmers’ Market for helping us arrange these special visits. We can’t wait!

Market Flavors – 11/6 & 11/7

We are so excited that it’s November, and I bet you can guess why: Thanksgiving! The Blue Chair Fruit kitchens have been producing some great seasonal flavors that we think you’ll love.

This weekend’s flavors are some of our reliable favorites — sadly, this is the last week of Red Raspberry-Strawberry Jam! We’re thinking Black Mission Fig Jam will be particularly good as a Thanksgiving accompaniment. Yum!

Market Flavors for Grand Lake (11/6) and Temescal (11/7): Red Raspberry-Strawberry Jam, Silver Three-Fruit Marmalade, Mariposa Plum Jam, Seville Orange Marmalade with Coffee and Cardamom, Gingered Tomato-Nectarine Jam, Lemon-Pink Grapefruit Marmalade, Black Mission Fig Jam

See you there!

Halloween Weekend – Autumnal Flavors!

Our flavors this weekend are going to be particularly exciting — some of our favorites from earlier in the year, plus a few of our favorite autumn flavors! These darker, richer flavors like damson plum and fig pair beautifully with warm autumn flavors.

Market Flavors for Grand Lake (10/30) and Temescal (10/31): Red Raspberry-Strawberry Jam, English Three-Fruit Marmalade, Damson Plum Jam, Lemon Marmalade with Pear, Blackberry-Blueberry Jam, Seville Orange Marmalade with Muscovado & Rum, Adriatic Fig Jam & Candied Ginger Jam

YUM. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re still putting last-minute touches on our costumes! Can’t wait to share these yummy October flavors with you.

Market Flavors: Oct 16 & 17

How did it get to be October already? And not just October, but MID-October? We’re still cooking up some delicious jams with our favorite summer fruits– mostly damson plums and tomatoes right now — but we know the seasons will inevitably turn to autumn very soon.

Are you sad to see summer go, too? You can savor its bright flavors year-round with the delicious flavors we’re bringing to the farmers’ markets this weekend. We think peach or raspberry jam is the perfect way to reminisce about summer on a brisk autumn morning.

Market Flavors (Grand Lake 10/16, Temescal 10/17): Red Raspberry-Strawberry Jam, Orange Pucker Citron Marmalade, Black Mission Fig Jam, Lemon-Pink Grapefruit Marmalade, Early Summer Peach Jam, Seville Orange Marmalade with Coffee and Cardamom

See you this weekend! Don’t forget, if your heart will break without a certain flavor on this list, you can always ask us to bring it the following week!

Market Flavors – October 9 and 10

What a week! From Rachel’s Martha Stewart appearance to being featured in The New York Times Magazine, there’s been a lot of excitement for Blue Chair Fruit!
