Introducing Karen + Bill Parker of Charliegran Preserves
Debuting at the Regina Farmers' Market in 2021, Karen and Bill are excited to join the community providing their traditional homestyled preserves! From jams and jellies to pickles, you are bound to go home with some tasty Saskatchewan goods! Karen first began learning how to pickle and prepare preserves from the expertise of her grand-parents and parents, and in 2003 Bill and Karen formalized their business into Charliegran Preserves and Treats. Somehow fifty+ years of experience slipped by and that same experience and expertise are poured into the making of Charliegran pickled goods you can find at their store today!
Wondering about the name Charliegran? When making the business name the inspiration came from their grandson who named his two favourite people, Charlie and Gran! They put the two names together and Charliegran Preserves was born!
