Marilyn Cleveland is the creator behind the Marilyn’s Jam Session product line. Her jams, jellies and sauces are sold at the weekly Brooklin and Searsport farmers markets. Her husband is pianist Scott
Cleveland and the business’s name is a nod to the jazz musician, who helps tend the farmers market stand.
Most of the jams and jellies have been given appropriately jazzy names, including Hot Licks Jalapeño, Jalapeño Swing, Orange Up!, Bulgarian Bebop, Blueberry Riff and Maple Cider Rag, to name a few.
