Indy Winter Farmers Market Vendor: Home Ec

Every week during the Indy Winter Farmers Market season, we’ll be profiling one of our local vendors! You can find the full list of IWFM vendors and past profiles here.

Home Ec, 3rd season at IWFM

Jessica Sowls, of Home Ec, makes small-batch, seasonal pickles and preserves from local, organic ingredients.

  • Pineapple Vanilla Bean Jam
  • Four Citrus Whiskey Marmalade
  • Cranberry Pomegranate Preserves
  • Peach Melba Preserves
  • Meyer Lemon & Lavender Marmalade

What do you love most about IWFM? The market has a good vibe–the staff, vendors, customers and space itself all create a welcoming atmosphere.

What is your most popular item? I bring different products each week, so it depends. Some best sellers include Pineapple Vanilla Bean Jam, Winter Pear Preserves, Sweet and Spicy Zucchini Picklers, and Blueberry Moscato Jam.

What is something most people don’t know about you? I also work as a librarian. Shhh.

What is your favorite local restaurant? Too many to name! Going out to eat is one thing I splurge on. I’m a big fan of Three Carrots in City Market–everything I’ve tried is delicious, and they use my jam in their PBJs.

What is your favorite thing to do in Indy in the winter? Get cozy with hot toddies and good company.
