Next Wednesday July 6th, will be our first Strawberry Festival at the Seaport Farmers Market! Sampling of different strawberry varieties will be available. Our vendors are planning strawberry treats! Chef Renee Lavalle has been enlisted by Select Nova Scotia to visit from 11:30 am until 1:30 pm and share some strawberry recipes! Renee will be sampling a strawberry milkshake made with Foxhill gelato, strawberries macerated in rosemary and strawberry shortcake! Pop by and take part in this delicious event! Mark it on your calendar

And to tide you until then, here's a quick and easy strawberry recipe courtesy of Select Nova Scotia. Make some now to have Nova Scotia strawberries available to you all year.

Strawberry Freezer Jam

2 cups crushed strawberries
4 cups sugar 1 pkg. (57 g) powdered fruit pectin 3/4 cup water
  1. Combine berries with sugar in bowl; mix well; let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine pectin and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Add to fruit mixture, stirring constantly for three minutes. Pour into sterilized jars, (LEAVE HEADSPACE for expansion) seal and let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Store in freezer.

Hope to see you at our STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL!

P.S .We are also open on July 1st, Canada Day!
Make us part of your celebration. Friday is International Day at the market.
