We are so very lucky that we get to host New West Craft at River Market every 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month with amazing local artisans. This Christmas we are in for a special treat. We have an exciting Christmas Night Market coming up on December 3rd from 6pm-9:30. Over the next few weeks we are going to feature some of the amazing vendors you will be able to shop from.
Vendor: Luv The Grub
Dates: November 19 and December 3 New West Craft & Christmas Night Market.
We recommend: Chai Apple Jam – With cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamon…this jam adds warmth to your morning toast, oatmeal and yogurt.
At Luv The Grub we make change taste delicious. Ethics run deep into the core of what we do from the ingredients we use to the way we make our products. Each jam, jelly and chutney is made with fruit and vegetable seconds and provides employment to newly landed immigrants and refugees with barriers to employment. What’s a second you say? Well it’s perfectly delicious fruits and vegetables that didn’t quite make it to the produce aisle of our local grocery store because they were either bent, bruised, misshapen or simply because there was too much of it. We rescue these beauties and give them and people a second chance by turning them into glorious chutneys, jams and jellies all the while delivering on an employment training program for people who need it the most.
So with each dollop, spread, dip, lick and bite of our products; you’re doing more than just eating and supporting local, you’re also spreading love to the people and planet around us….so go ahead – love the way change tastes.
