pickled veggies from JB_MCT

Come to the Market today and stock up on the freshest produce around! Try to set aside some time this week to spend canning, pickling, and preserving. You’ll be grateful for it this winter and it’s a good excuse to invite some good friends over to help (and reap some of the benefits)! 

Remember, starting this week, we open an hour later, so enjoy that extra hour of sleep!
