2018 Fiery Foods Show Bound!

To say it’s been awhile since we last posted here would be a gross under-selling of the situation. But no matter that right now, we have a big announcement to make…..we are making our triumphant (hopefully) return to the Fiery Foods Show in Albuquerque March 2-4, 2018!

We are very excited to return after three years of absence while Jen and I were in Africa. We left on quite the high note as we carried away the Grand Prize of the 2015 show for our Belligerent Batch. We will be submitting our salsas for judging again this time around and will be hoping for the best.

We can’t wait to do the show, see all our friends again, and hopefully take away some more hardware!

The Belligerent Batch Has Arrived!

Christmas has come early for salsa lovers across the nation because you can now order our new habanero salsa, The Belligerent Batch, online!


Our release party at the Farm Shop of Los Poblanos was this weekend and everyone had a great time! The response to the new salsa was excellent and everyone agreed it definitely had the extra kick people have been asking for. While the Farm Shop remains the only store you can purchase the new salsa from in Albuquerque, you can order as much as you like HERE from our online store.

We are very excited for everyone to try it, and if you are one of our Kickstarter backers, we have gathered all the surveys and will be putting the finishing touches on all of your reward boxes during the first week of January (we expect to ship it all out mid January).

Also, keep your eyes peeled for updates about in-store tastings during the next month or two. In the meantime, enjoy your holidays and all fun family times they involve!

Much love from the salsa crew,

Mike, Jen and Ben

More Big News!


Another year another win for Black Market Salsa! For the 2015 Scovie Awards we submitted our new, about to be available habanero salsa, The Belligerent Batch and we won THE GRAND PRIZE! Our salsa scored the highest out the field of hundreds of products submitted for this year’s awards (mustards, salsas, chocolates, beef jerky, alcohol…..). Need less to say, we are quite honored and we are excited to attend the Fiery Foods Show in Albuquerque March 6-8 for the second year in a row.
