Jam Making for Kids
The Market and the Fraser Valley Strawberry Growers Association are offering a jam making session for our younger customers.
Everyone under 16 is invited to join us to make strawberry freezer jam and take home a jar of your own.
The sessions will be at the market sometime in June (date to be determined by when the berries are ripe) and will be free.
Families should indicate interest to us at the Market info booth or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Space is limited to 20 young people, so we suggest you get on the list now.
