Meet the Vendor: Our Favorite Foods
Who are you and what do you do?
Our Favorite Foods just happens to be Pickles! We make our Pickles once a year in Portland, OR using local produce and fresh spices.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
March and April are our planning months — this is when we meet with our farmers and local retailers to plan our production for the year. Most of our production is done in July and August.
How did you get started in your business?
I learned to pickle from my Mom, using my Grandma Rose’s Pickle Recipe. We made them every year and gave them as holiday gifts. A dear friend of mine brought me a brochure for a class – “Getting Your Recipe to Market”, telling me I had to take this class. I had so much fun in the class!!!
Who’s your biggest fan?
My husband Duke (the name-sake for our Hot Pickles!)
What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
The best compliment anyone can give me is to tell me that our pickles taste like their Mom’s or Grandma’s!!!
