These upcoming events are all free, informal, and open to the public.

Saturday, October 4, 10:00-1:00
16th Annual Jam Contest and Public Tasting

    Our Annual Jam Contest is a perennial favorite here at the store. It's kind of like a county fair, except that everyone stopping by gets to taste any of over fifty local, homemade jams, jellies, and preserves on toasted Zingerman's bread. When you've had your fill, vote for your favorites! The top three winners receive gift cards to the store. The contest is free to enter, as well - submit your best jams and jellies by Friday, October 3. Not to be missed!

Saturday, October 11, 10:00-1:00
6th Annual Pickle Contest and Public Tasting

    We didn't think it was possible, but the picklers take the competition even more seriously than the jammers! You'll taste everything from grandma's bread-and-butter pickles to pickled asparagus, and maybe even some spicy Indian chutneys. Entries are due by Friday, October 10. Your votes determine which three picklers will receive gift cards to the store, as well as bragging rights for the next year.
