Canning Jars in Center City/Mt Airy

I am putting up my figs and tomatoes this week, and had forgotten I had donated a box of 1 qt jars to a neighborhood kid's school project last spring. Now I am short and cannot seem to find jars in the city. ACME and SuperFresh used to stock them (they were overpriced, but they were there), but I stopped at both last night and none carried them.

Does anyone know where I can pick up canning and/or jelly jars in Philly?

  1. I'm not sure, but have you checked Kilian's Hardware in Chestnut Hill? They have everything I've ever gone in there to look for, and many things I never knew I needed until I saw them. :-)

      I love Killian's too, and am sure they have them - but they close so early! And my tomatoes are not going to make it to the weekend!

      1. Nearish to Mt Airy: Stanley's Hardware on Ridge Avenue in Roxborough.

        1. I know Rittenhouse Hardware on 20th Street in Center City has canning jars, usually.

          1. weavers way co-op also carries them, 2nd floor
