Jam Food Shop

Nestled in the back of the Sharon Farm Market in bucolic Sharon, CT is a beloved, bustling little enterprise of its own, Jam Food Shop, or Jam’s. It’s where you go when you are in a jam because you didn’t make anything for dinner but you want everyone to think you did. Shhhhh!

The grab-and-go case features classic, un-fussy entrees, soups, and side dishes-- foods like Dijon Ham, Roast Beef, Butternut Ginger Soup, and Crunchy Veggie Salad, recipes that have been developed to perfection by owner/chef Lee Kennedy, and proudly prepared and served up by a friendly staff, passionate about wholesome food.

Be sure to pick up a wedge of cheese to start or finish your meal. Jam’s always features a surprising array– they have a cheese from India right now. And Sharon Farm Market offers a range of gluten-free breads and crackers to enjoy it with, guilt free.

Jam’s is a gourmet prepared foods, bakery, and deli counter all cozied up inside a full service little grocery store, which features other partners too, like a fish market and a take-out sushi bar, and don’t miss the remarkable selection of international foods in Aisle 2.

You can even pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers to make your table pretty. The helpful staff will show you where to find everything.

It’s the full package. What’s to not to love? That’s why it’s this week Favorite Thing.
