SLC Fermenting Co. LLC

Our product is called Habanero Arrow, which is a small batch, artisan made, fermented hot sauce made here in Salt Lake City, Utah.  My wife Tamra and I are former chefs and avid gardeners. We have been developing this product for just over four years. Habanero Arrow is a low-pH, Utah made, shelf-stable fermented hot sauce product which can go on the grocery shelves without the need for refrigeration.  

Habanero Arrow contains fresh habanero peppers, organic garlic, white vinegar, organic carrots, organic fresh herbs, organic xanthan gum (a natural thickener/emulsifier) and salt. This product is vegan, raw, gluten free and loaded with probiotics. It has the unique benefit of being both spicy and gut healthy. 

We are operating out of the Salt Fire Brewery at 2195 S. W. Temple in their commercial kitchen. This facility has been inspected and approved for food production by the Utah Department of Agriculture. 

SLC Fermenting endeavors to roll out some other hot sauces such as whiskey barrel aged hot sauces, other pepper-based sauces, probiotic health drink shots, spicy kimchis and kraut-chis, as well as other products. We’re also teaming up with Salt Fire Brewing to create some creative beer and other cocktails.  We’re just out of the gate with our flagship Habanero Arrow hot sauce. 

We hope you like it as much as we do.

Great little farmers market. It’s not nearly as big as the downtown market, which isn’t necessarily bad, as it feels more intimate and easier to get through. There’s a decent selection of vendors and food trucks. We usually will walk around the farm afterwards, my son loves to see the animals after going through the market.

What a beautiful place! Love the Sunday Farmers market in the late Summer.You can get breakfast, or brunch and coffee. Not to mention all the amazing fresh farm produce abd other eclectic vendors. BUT there is so so much more! From the historic farm, barn and animals, with all the activities associated there, there are beautiful ground with huge trees and ponds, walking and jogging trails. There are vegetable gardens and beautiful carved wooden sculptures from trees. Playgrounds, picnic area, tons of grass, pet friendly. Just a wonderful place to spend some time!

Acres of recreation, wagon rides, historic tractors, huge play structure, animals galore, and the best Farmer’s market this side of the valley. I can’t say enough about how great this facility is. My family and I have been coming here for years. We love this historic farm. The tour of the farmhouse is definitely worth checking out.

Cornaby’s is a great company that makes quality products! I love that their products are gluten free, non-gmo and taste delicious.

Cornaby’s Jam in a Jiffy is the ONLY way I will make jam. It’s so simple and it is the best jam I’ve ever made. When I didn’t have access to Cornaby’s recently, I tried to do sure-gel. I followed the directions closely and it didn’t set right. The next day I was able to get another bag of Cornaby’s and made the best jam. It proved to me that Cornaby’s is the only brand for me.

They have excellent jams, filled with fresh fruits right off the farm that are low in sugar and high in real fruit. They even have some jams sweetened
with stevia, which I really like; and they are good people who are operating their family business too.

Cafe Diablo

Nestled below the Boulder and Thousand Lake Mountains on the doorstep of Capitol Reef National Park in Southern Utah, Cafe Diablo offers a fresh and fun dining experience that celebrates the geological majesty we find out our own backdoor. Dine outdoors on our patio or indoors surrounded by paintings inspired by our landscape and the seed catalogs of the Early 1900’s.

The human tongue has roughly 10,000 taste buds. Our aim is to excite all of them! By showcasing local flavors and top notch ingredients, we create dishes that please the palate and the eye. We believe that a fantastic meal is made up of 4 key ingredients:

  • A blending of tastes that delight and energize the palate.
  • A presentation that pleases the eye and intrigues pictures!
  • A pairing of wine, beer, or craft cocktails that complement the dish.
  • Great conversation.

A gem in an unexpected place. We discovered this place in 1999 during a national park tour. An excellent, creative menu and delicious food. If you are in the Torrey area look no further for a great dining experience.

We ate here twice, and both times the food was great. The portions are generous, (especially the crab and shrimp stack and the ribs), and the elk steak is delicious!
Service is friendly and efficient, the margaritas and desserts are delicious, and the outdoor patio is relaxed and lovely, with flower borders and views of the canyon.

We had a celebration dinner for my husband graduating from medical school at Cafe Diablo. The food was all delicious and beautifully presented! We ate outside on the patio and loved the views. It couldn’t have been a better evening!

Rino’s Italian Fresh

Rino’s Italian Fresh believes in producing good quality salsa, marinara sauce and pesto made from his own naturally grown heirloom tomatoes and produce.  Rino’s mission is to provide a product made from vine ripe tomatoes with amazing fresh flavor.

He couldn’t stand the thought of sitting at home after retirement. Rino has always lived a very active lifestyle and now has decided to pursue producing his home made sauces.

Rino is starting off with making his fresh sauces and selling them at the local farmers markets. He is selling his products seasonally for now so he can maintain the high quality sauce with his produce. Flavor means everything to Rino and he doesn’t want to compromise that with sourcing his produce elsewhere.

Reviews

I like Rino’s Italian Fresh because the varieties of produce they sell are quite different from what else you would typically find in Utah. The main products I would recommend are the grapes, figs, and basil. I haven’t found another farmer who sells products like the grapes and basil. And even cold-hardy figs are quite difficult to grow in the long winter climate.
