Jeni's Strawberry Jam

  • North Market 59 Spruce Street Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

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 strawberry 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 chicken (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 ice cream and serving Jeni’s own strawberry shortcake. Beer and wine shop The Barrel and Bottle will be pouring a special selection of rosé and local brews from Seventh Son Brewing and Land-Grant Brewing Company. Strawberry farmer Mike Hirsch from Hirsch Fruit Farm 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.

Admission is free.
