Try –and Buy– Local Honey This Saturday

Grab the last of the sweet golden summer this Saturday from Capitol Hill Beekeeper Del Voss and his fellow minder-of-beeswax Jan Day of Second Story Honey. Del and Jan will hold their Fall Honey Sale Saturday, Sept 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 11th and C Streets NE near 7-River Mart (250 11 St. NE).

Try –and perhaps, buy– honey from different DC neighborhoods including Lincoln Park, Stanton Park and Congressional Cemetary. Each honey has a distinctive flavor representative of the flowers and trees in that neighborhood on which the local bees dined. This delicious honey was harvested only weeks ago!

Day also makes beautiful beeswax candles you can pick up to light up the precious remaining summer nights.

If you would like to learn about Beekeeping and the importance of pollinators on Capitol Hill, or just say Hi, stop by and visit Del Saturday! You can also call or text him at 202-677-0959 to get your jar!🍯 Honey costs:
