New Producer: Elaine & Fernando Salgado: Some Like It Hot: tamales and salsa
Fernando is from Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico. He came to the United States 27 years ago. He has worked in the restaurant business for 25 years. Elaine is from Indianapolis but lived in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico for 2 years. Elaine moved back to Indianapolis and within a couple of years met Fernando.
They married a year after meeting. They live on the border of Fishers and Noblesville. Fernando and Elaine love to have friends and family over for dinner. Everyone who tried Fernando’s cooking would tell him that he needs to open a restaurant. After years of hearing this from friends and family they decided to be a vendor at the Fishers Farmers Market. The summer of 2016 was their first year at the farmers market and there tent became busy very quickly. They sell about 500 tamales and 1,500 ounces of salsa in a four-hour period every Saturday at the Summer Fisher’s Farmer market.
Their salsa is available in traditional salsa (red) and salsa verde (green). Both salsas are offered in mild, American hot, Mexican hot, or diablo.
Their tamales options are chicken tamales in red sauce, chicken tamales in green sauce, vegetarian tamales (black beans, corn, cilantro, tomatoes, onions, and white cheddar cheese. Masa is made with coconut oil, vegetable broth and corn flour.), and vegan tamales (same as vegetarian but without the cheese). Their tamales and salsa are gluten free.
