This busy place is run by monks that make all of the various jams/jellies, bakery items, candy, etc...There's every kind of jam/jelly that you can imagine so the selection can be a bit overwhelming. The prices are a little on the high side, so I'm hoping that the jelly selections I made are worth it. I also got some molasses... More

The Jampot is a must-see in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This monastery serves as the home of a large group of orthodox monks who live on what could be the most beautiful piece of property on the shores of Lake Superior. Inside the Jampot, you will find some tremendous baked goods, jams, and jellies and will want to come... More

The wide variety, high quality and creativity was inspiring to see. Amazong to think they produced it all on that small, remote building. We picked up a half dozen jams/jellies, some cookies and confections. All we have tried so far have been wonderful.

A little hidden treasure. Great jams, breads and treats to eat!! I always buy some to take home to WI. Recommend to anyone passing thru the area. Check their hours before you go, believe the are closed Sundays. Enjoy!

Imagine walking into this tiny storefront and finding a hidden treasure! The monks create the most amazing cakes, jams, jellies and other special treats. My husband and I bought the small Abbey Cake soaked in bourbon and fought over the last crumbs. I came home and ordered the cake sampler - should be here tomorrow!

A small roadside bakery run by a sect of monks. They are so very friendly. The bakery is famous for it jams and fruitcakes. But I loved their cookies. Several kinds. Prices a bit high, but this goes towards their support. Large parking lot. I believe they could add a few tables outside to enjoy your treats. Hint: do not... More

This is a bakery and jam store operated by Monks from the Monastery. It was rumored that they use rum and other spirits in the delicious bake goods and the rumor is true. One item for sale is a fruitcake, unlike your typical Christmas fruit cakes. Also unlike other fruit cakes, the price is $50. I did not buy one... More

We stopped by the falls right next to this, then went in to see what the Jampot was about. We left with several small jars of variously flavored jams and jellies. These jars full of good taste are made by the monks at the monastary across the street in order to support themselves. Jampot is well known in the area,... More
