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.

Weekend Flavors & Cavallo Point Jam 101

We are very pleased to announce that we are collaborating with the Cavallo Point Cooking School to offer our Jam 101 class!

Cavallo Point is a lovely site just on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge, so it’s easily accessible for pretty much everyone in the Bay Area. This will be our full Jam 101 class — lots of hands-on experience, very focused on understanding the jam process, and Rachel’s expertise! You can sign up with us or through Cavallo Point. More information about the class, plus our weekend market flavors, after the jump!

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

Nearly as exciting and equally delicious, we have some great flavors for you this weekend! Please stop by the market stand and say hello, try everything, ask questions, bring us tokens of affection…
