Maker Monday: Jars By Jodi

Forget Sunday Funday, it’s Maker Monday! On Monday’s we feature a different maker & brand in a dedicated blog post & on our social media. We carry so many incredible brands in the store and want to make sure the world knows about them! This week we’d like to introduce you to Jars By Jodi!

Looking for a teacher gift? That hard to buy for friend? The cookie lover in your life? Jars by Jodi is your gal! These cookies are to die for! Just add your wet ingredients and bake, seriously so easy! They come in two sizes & a huge variety of flavours like double chocolate chip, smartie, cowboy & the ever so popular Mini Egg…yes I said MINI EGG!


“Jars by Jodi started when my husband and I were young, newly married, and broke. We wanted to give quality Christmas gifts to our extended family but didn’t have the money to do anything extravagant. I googled “quality gifts on a budget” and mason jar mixes popped up. Our family loved the mason jar cookie mixes I made and began requesting to buy some to gift to others. The next year I decided to try selling them at a market and realized that I needed a business name to do that. As a result Jars by Jodi was launched! Several years later, it’s grown beyond what I ever expected.”

Fun Fact: “…the name Jars by Jodi was chosen because I’m both an extremely literal and fairly uncreative person. Growing up I had a pink stuffed bear called “Pink Bear,” a yellow blanket called “Yellow Blankey,” and a cat named “Cuddles” (because he liked to cuddle, obviously).”

A couple words about what it means to be a part of The Local Space community

“I was so excited when Megan said there was room for Jars by Jodi at The Local Space. I felt like I was accepted into an elite club of makers LOL! I dropped the first order off at their old location, just days before they moved the shop to Fraser Highway. I love everything that The Local Space does to support local artists and create awareness for so many of my favourite brands. It’s truly an honour to have my cookie jars sold at The Local Space.”

Besides running Jars by Jodi, Jodi is a wife to Nic & a mom to two boys. And we didn’t even know this but Jodi is also the owner of a wedding planning business, guess you learn something new everyday! Needless to say, Jodi’s life is never dull or quiet!
