I'll admit it, I like Valentine's Day. Not for the lame teddy bears or Hallmark faux-love, not for the stress of the perfect romantic date and feeling sad if you don't have one, and not for the meaningless consumerism of it all. I love it for the kitschy charm, the homemade cards, the permission to eat chocolate any time all day, the celebration of gushy dorky love. Best of all, Valentine's Day is an excuse to give little gifts to my main squeeze and my friends, whether it be homemade cards, a piece of chocolate, or a jar of jam. To that end, I'll be selling jam this weekend at the beautiful indoor New Amsterdam Market at the South Street Seaport Museum.
I'll have a bunch of flavors for sale, including:
Strawberry Balsamic Jam | 3's Company Triple Berry Jam | Easy Like Sunday Morning Blueberry Preserves | Hot Fireman’s Pear Jam Grapefruit & Smoked Salt Marmalade | Spiced Beer Jelly | Lime & Pandan Marmalade | Blood Orange Marmalade
Join us for New Amsterdam Market's second Valentine's Gift Shop, held this year in a spectacular historic 1868 warehouse space provided by the South Street Seaport Museum.
