Strawberry Jam

Join us Sunday, June 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. outside on the North Market front porch for Strawberry Jam—a picnic-style party in celebration of Ohio 🍓 season.

We’ve asked some of our favorite people in and around Columbus to help celebrate strawberry season with Jeni’s favorite summer picnic food and live music from Doc Robinson and Maza Blaska.

There’ll be cold fried 🍗 (in warm and cold spice levels) from Hot Chicken Takeover and salads and biscuits from Little Eater. We’ll be scooping our Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk 🍦 and serving Jeni’s own strawberry shortcake. Beer and wine shop Barrel & Bottle will be pouring a special selection of rosé and local 🍺 from Seventh Son and Land-Grant Brewing. Strawberry farmer Mike Hirsch will be there with pints of his gem-like berries available for sale (the same berries we use in our ice cream). Doc Robinson will play some live backyard BBQ breakup music 🎸🎷🎺, with Maza Blaska opening. There’ll be activities to keep any youngsters busy. And Jeni, Joe DeLoss, Cara Mangini, and Mike Hirsch will all be there, too.

Great food, hot tunes, plenty of booze, and LOTS of strawberries. Good times!
