Bonnie Sellars of Sellars Farm in Leland, has been canning her whole life. Her grandmother taught her how to make preserves and pickles as a child, and she has been doing it ever since!
Bonnie grows everything needed to produce her goodies on her land just off Hwy 82. Each week, she prepares fresh items based on what is available in her garden. She comes to the Greenville Farmers’ Market twice weekly with pickles, salsas, jams, chow-chow, jalapeño mustard, apple butter, dried herbs, certified farm fresh eggs, and any fruits and vegetables not used to make her canned items.
Bonnie’s love of preserving what she harvests has spilled into a new generation. Just as her grandmother taught her, Bonnie is teaching her granddaughter the family recipes. Bonnie’s granddaughter aspires to go to culinary school and one day have a restaurant where she can sell her MawMaw’s preserves, salsas, butters, and mustards. Stop by Bonnie’s booth Wednesdays and Saturdays, 8 am-noon at the Greenville Farmers’ Market, 734 Washington Avenue, Downtown Greenville, MS. The Greenville Farmers’ Market is a Main Street Greenville program.
