Pickled Vegetables


Martha began pickling leftover produce from her garden one year when an early frost loomed, and her family scrambled to pick everything before night fell and the freeze came. “We just didn’t want it to go to waste!” said Martha, chuckling at the memory. Her mother and grandmother, who taught her pickling in Alabama, were great inspirations to her. It is their recipe that is the basis of Martha’s Joy pickles today. Not only is her recipe important, but the quality of the ingredients used is crucial for delicious pickles. The “LIVE LAUGH LOVE” philosophy radiates the joy of the late Martha Jackson and her husband David, who continues the business today.

Martha’s Joy products includes: Pickle Asparagus, Pickle beans, Pickle Beets, Pickle Brussels Sprouts, Pickle Carrots, Pickle Cauliflower’s, Pickle Cucumber, Pickle Garlic, Pickle Mixed Vegetables, Pickle Okra, Pickle Peppers, Pickle shallots, and Pickle Watermelon Rinds.

We pride ourselves in using produce that is Minnesota Grown and purchased from Minnesota Farmer’s Market Vendors.
