City Market Downtown vendor profile: The Jam Lady

jam ladyWhat kind of products do you sell?

We sell jams, jellies, marmalades, hot pepper jellies, mustards, horseradish relishes, chutneys, pickled veggies in season.

How did you get your start?

We started in 1991 in Calgary. We always were farmers market shoppers and interest evolved into a lifestyle change and we started our agri-business. We are starting our 24th season in
Alberta and are selling to the third generation of cusomters!

What is it about your products that make you different that other vendors?

One customer was asked by another customer at our booth one Saturday, “how would you describe one particular mustard?” The answer was, “life changing … and, by the way, since that is the last jar of that mustard, it’s also ‘sold”!

Why do you sell your product at the City Market Downtown?

We have always enjoyed the feel of the city market and its customers, and it best aligns with our core values and schedule.

If you wanted customers to know one thing about your product, what would it be?

We reach out to many different individual preferences. Not everyone eats jam, so we feature a variety of products that our family also enjoys eating as well. Some are heritage recipes and others are new and innovative. We listen and we care about we do, so try some, you’ll be a believer!
