Jenny’s Delectables – a gourmet line of potato products – was founded by Jennifer in May 2016, starting out in local farmers markets. As the business continues to build, Jennifer's personal values guide their growth; with local ingredients, product innovation and sustainabilty at the forefront. Development has even begun on self-sustained, solar-powered hydroponic grow sites, which will make Jenny’s Delectables 100% local in all lines of products.

Mary Burch from Red House Salsa

Mary Burch from Red House Salsa

Mary Burch's salsa journey all began with family. They made salsa together – chopping garlic and peppers, stirring pots, and creating homemade gifts to share. Through friendly encouragement, as "you never grow inside your comfort zone", Mary was inspired to turn this hobby into a business that balances the demands of a busy family with her entrepreneurial passion.

Natalia Lazic from Seven Spice

Natalia Lazic grew up eating spicy food, thanks to her family’s Yugoslavian roots. With a passion for home cooking, she was frustrated that she could not find a quality, Asian-style chili oil. One day, she and her mother Anna, started mixing ingredients in the kitchen, and before you could say the words ‘chili oil’ Seven Spice Chili Oil was created. The number 7 inspires the name, Seven Spice as it was originally made with seven ingredients. Seven Spice chili oil is available in hot, mild and extra hot.
