Local place which delivers and carries jams and jellies
Thanks, Kristine & Windy! I think I've figured out what I'm going to do! I'll order from Pennington Farms in Oregon. That way it won't be something that they can get themselves & I won't have to wrap it myself and send it from one coast to the next! Thanks to both of you. I'm set!
Most local grocers could do this for you. So Bi-Rite Market could pull together a basket to pick up from their jam selection. They do deliver if you spend enough. So will Canyon Market, I think.
Generally jam prices in the Bay Area are high (esp June Tayor), so you might want to buy elsewhere and ship. One exception is the wonderful jams from Swanton Berry Farm, sold at farmers markets and some local grocers. They cost about half what June Taylor or Frog Hollow (another very good local purveyor) does.
I'm a big fan of Pennington Farms near Grants Pass in Oregon and know they will ship a case. More on Made in Oregon. Or check out Foodzie. La Cocina was selling through them for a while.
One other unusual local option is Kitty Myers' Kreations, sold at Thorough Bread and a few other markets. I suspect you could place a phone order as a gift and then have them go collect their jams and bread.
