Artist Series Jams: In an effort toward lasting and meaningful engagement in the community, the East Van Jam Artist Series celebrates the varied communities that make East Vancouver so dynamic. A collaboration with local artists, each recipe is a nod to the artists’ cultural heritage while maintaining our low-sugar and BC-sourced fruit mandates. A portion of proceeds go toward a charity of the artist’s choice.

East Van Jam was founded in 2013 by Natalie Ferrari-Morton who lives in East Vancouver with her husband and two boys. She has spent her adult life living in Vancouver’s east side honing and perfecting her jam-making skills and recipes, culminating in high quality, big hustle and flavourful jams. After three years hosting low-sugar canning workshops under the moniker “Homesteading Mamas” with pal Anna Hunter, Natalie was hearing a clear message from her clients: why isn’t a great tasting, low sugar jam alternative available on the market? With experience making, using and feeding her own kids a more healthful alternative, she knew it was time to take the jam scene by storm and East Van Jam was born!
