Jammin' Good Time

Beta Verde is out and about!
We had a ‘jammin’ good time at the Krankie’s Farmers Market. We enjoyed being with so many of the producers we admire as well as getting much needed commentary on our pickles and jams. Thanks to all who stopped by, tasted and went home with BV jars!

We had the pleasure of being the ‘author attendants’ for acclaimed Jewish cookbook writer and frequent New York Times contributor, Joan Nathan ( and Aviva Goldfarb who created the Six O’Clock Scramble ( We learned some new tricks of the trade from Joan and Aviva’s presentations AND got to watch food guru Fred Thompson on the grill with some salmon and pork.

New jams are on the shelf! Walters Farm has shared their heirloom tree fruit bounty with us and we are happy to showcase Seckel Pear Jam, Mirabelle Plum Jam, Red Currant Preserves, Peach Preserves and Grilled Fig Preserves.

Purchasing may be made directly so please e-mail with your interest, although there is a good possibility of a downtown selling spot soon.
