Ready for Canning Season?

We’re so fortunate in Troy to have one of the very best Farmers’ Markets around. What an opportunity to buy fresh, locally grown produce and fruit and preserve them for less bountiful months, when a dish of semi-frozen strawberries and blueberries would taste sublime (with a little whipped cream, perhaps). Whether you are a canner or freezer or both, we’ve got the supplies you will need. Stock up now! And, if we don’t have something, please ask for it. Usually we can get things pretty quickly from our warehouse.

Happy Canning! And don’t forget that you can take your counter top compost to the compost booth at the Farmer’s Market!
