You know that Anarchy in a Jar is not going to be any sort of fuddy-duddy company with a name like that.

Working out of her Brooklyn apartment, Laena McCarthy creates jams that she sells locally to shops and markets, as well as delivering jars by bicycle (named Bluebell) to private homes in Brooklyn and lower Manhattan on weekends.

We like the idea that the person stirring the jam pot is also the person who delivers the product to your doorstep – what an eco-friendly and personable business!

We’re also reliably told that the jam is packed with flavour – almost all the seasonal fruit is sourced locally and the jams all have a particular ‘vintage’ because they’re made from fruit grown in a particular year and under those unique environmental conditions.
