This Week, July 25 at the Osoyoos Market

We have had a busy 2 weeks and it was NOT at the Farm Market.

We had to go to Calgary to clean our Condo and put it up for sale. (want to buy a condo, click here) With the economy in Canada and Alberta, the way it is right now. There will be no work in online training for a while. What prompted this was my receiving word from the Boundary Community Futures, they would help me start a new consulting business for local small food businesses. I am excited to be working on a business plan, and I will pass along more information as I proceed down this path.


Beary Good Stuff will still be selling at Farm Markets. And speaking of Farm Markets, we will be at the Osoyoos Market tomorrow! We have made some of our customer’s favorites – Strawberry Coconut and Vanilla Jam, as well as some new favorites, Cherry Rhubarb Jam and some of the old standbys, like Blueberry Garlic Jelly.

We have made a new batch of our Salsa Spice Blend – you can add this to fresh diced tomatoes for a fresh salsa, and we will have some of our “To Die For Cherry Muffins” available.

We look forward to seeing you at the market!


About badkowalik

Prepared by hand and cooked in small batches – our preserves are cooked slowly. There is an average of 1.5 pounds of fruit in every 8 oz jar. Not only can you taste the difference – you can see the difference. Beautiful natural color and unmatched textures – that can only be achieved by the patience and experience of the Confiseur (the maker). There is alchemy to what we do. Like fine wines, each season has it’s own specific style. We create preserves with exceptional taste. Capturing these flavors is the craft of our business. Beary Good Stuff is a collection of seasonal, sustainable, artisinally made preserves. The collection is made (in limited quantities) from local fruits using traditional cooking methods. We use the freshest ingredients we can get. The small batch production insures a taste and texture that is unmatched in the commercial market today. The collection includes preserved fruits & vegetables – marmalades, jams, fruit butters & salsas, pickles and gift collections that reflect the bounty of the season and spirit of feasting. Although not necessary yet, we have received a letter from the BC Heath Authority. We submitted a package detailing how and where we made our products, what each recipe contains and how we prepare it. This letter is displayed in our tent at the Farm Market. We have our BC MarketSafe and FoodSafe certifications.

  1. You have the coolest flavors, I never see any like that around here. Good luck with the business plan, I am sure anything you do will be a success.

  2. Have a great day at the Market… I’m a fan of strawberry vanilla jam… it’s like having a piece of summer when it is could and rainy outside :O)

  3. Sorry to hear about the lack of work in online training, but it sounds as though it is opening a great opportunity for you, Barb. That strawberry coconut and vanilla jam sounds yummy! 🙂
