Get schooled at the market! Curious about how these amazing market vendors make the artisan foods and products they bring to markets? We’re rolling out a new series at the Wednesday farmers’ market at Mueller where community members will learn from the pros in 30-minute mini workshop sessions. Attendees will have the chance to participate in a free raffle to take home a product from the instructor of the week. Workshops run from 6:30-7pm on Wednesdays along the lake. Join in the fun and education this week!
This week we’ll hear from Kate of Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking!
Workshop title: Small-batch peach jam
Description: Learn the basics of micro-batch jamming, no canning needed! Learn to balance sweetness and flavor in the crafting of simple, small batch of jams and preserves.
