COVID-19 impacts smaller Markets

Many local farmers markets have closed their gates during the COVID-19 emergency. As much as we all love strolling through and shopping at the markets, the need for social distancing to reduce the risks of COVID-19 transmission is paramount.

Wendy’s Crafts Online ShopWendys Crafts Online shopping

After much wrangling and hair pulling a basic Online Shop has been added to the Wendy’s Crafts website. Wendy has started with 20 Jams, Marmalades and Relishes in the 280g jars. All your favourites are there for you to choose from, perhaps not in the jar size of your choice, but available none-the-less. A decision about the range of the online shop depends on the duration of COVID-19 restrictions, customer demand, the supply chain of fruit and some technical considerations.

Postage and Handling

There is an additional fee for postage, packaging and handling with a maximum of 6 jars per order. The postage and packaging costs are driven mainly by the glass jars. Although plastic jars would be lighter and less breakable, jam in plastic jars doesn’t work as the jars are filled with hot jam. Hot jam would interfere with the integrity of the plastic and the heated plastic would interfere with the integrity of the jam. The price of most of the jams has been reduced to help compensate for the cost of the postage.

Why shop online?

A pantry without Wendy’s Jam would be like the end of toast, scones, pikelets and cold meats as we know them!  Do you want to revert to the mass produced jam, marmalade and relish? Would you like to deliver a treat / gift to your next door neighbour or family member during these changed times? So many good reasons to purchase the homemade produce of Wendy’s Crafts.
