Girl Meets Dirt Jam Shop Handpicked, Kitchen & Tasting Room (on the outskirts of Eastsound on Orcas Island)

We love visitors at our jam shop & kitchen, "Handpicked", just outside the heart of Eastsound on Orcas Island. We're generally open M-F 9-5pm, kitchen humming along, copper pots a-stirring, hands a-chopping, and shelves stocked with everything we make (right here in this wee kitchen). We also have a smattering of delicious samples to taste (that and the glorious smell is complimentary). Come see us! 

If you're not on the island, getting your sweet fix is simple in our Online Shop, but if you live nearby one of our fabulous specialty food retailers, stop on by and pick their brains about their favorite pairings, and drop a wedge of cheese in along with your Orcas Pear w/Bay.  And a baguette - heck, some wine and chocolate too while you're at it.   We're all for a well-rounded meal.   

You can also find us at the following Markets (seasonally):

Orcas Island Farmers Market

San Juan Island Farmers Market

Interested in wholesale? We'd love to stock your shelves. Please email us at info@girlmeetsdirt.com and let us know a little bit about you.
