It’s almost time for the monthly farmer’s market featuring the lots of homegrown and homemade goodies by local farmers, artisans, and more. It will be held from 9am-3pm at the Devine Community Center this Saturday, July 2.
Like many local farmers and artisans, the Scantlin family loves being part of the monthly market, selling their homemade jellies and jams
“I love the variety of items that we have at this market. Jams, jellies, canned goods, baked goods, fresh veggies, handmade jewelry, soaps, handmade decor and craft items, plants, lavender products, handmade wooden cutting boards, fresh processed meats, honey, herbal teas, and more,” Mrs. Laurie Scantlin said.
Laurie and her husband Scott Scantlin make 45 awesome flavors of homemade jams and jellies as well as candied jalapenos, pickled onions, jalapeno syrup and prickly pear syrup.
“We offer 5 lavender jams/jellies made with fresh culinary lavender from Doe-Re-Mi Lavender Farm in Moore, TX,” Scott and Laurie Scantlin said. “The Mango-Jalapeno is a customer favorite. Our newest flavor is Tropical Sunrise and we completely sold out of it at the last market.”
They offer 8 different pepper jellies, and several specialty jams/jellies such as carrot cake, chocolate-covered cherry, apple pie, cinnamon candy kiss, as well as plenty of regular fruit jams and jellies.
Is your mouth watering yet?
“We’re always coming up with new flavors,” Mrs. Scantlin said. “We’ve been making homemade jams and jellies for family and friends for many years, and once the Texas Cottage Food laws made things easier for home producers; we started our small business in late 2019. The two of us work together to make all our products from scratch in our home kitchen,” the Scantlins said. “We always offer FREE SAMPLES of our products at the markets, so our customers can try before they buy to make sure they are getting something they’ll enjoy.”
Local candlemaker, Sarah Banks, will be there with her homemade candles and wax melts as well. Making her own scents, “Country Boots and Strawberry Leather are definitely customer favorites,” she said.
