Vendor Since: 2018

About Us:

Halcyon (Hal-See-Yon) Salsa started in Kevin Mackey’s kitchen in 2009 as an experiment to try and cook with non-processed foods that still satisfied a salt tooth. Over years, the recipes were perfected and batches were made for friends and family.

It was a major hit. “KMack’s Salsa” was a thing, so now Halcyon Salsa is commercially manufacturing it and sharing it with you! For now, our sole market is Cincinnati, but we will expand into other salsa loving cities like Denver and Portland soon.

Products We Sell:
A variety of fresh salsas made within 48 hours of the market

Our Practices:
Halcyon salsa is committed to fresh, natural productions practices.  During peak season, we source food locally through the Ohio Valley Food Connection.  Off peak produce comes from Pies Produce in Reading.

Mt. Kofinas Olive Oil

Cincinnati, OH 45242
Email: evie@kofinasoliveoil.com

Vendor Since: 2010

About Us:
Our family has been growing and harvesting olives for generations. Evie ManoMountains grew up in the village of Stavies. She eventually met her future husband, John Semertzides, while they were both attending college in Thessaloniki. After they were married, they moved to the United States and now reside in Cincinnati, Ohio. They had 3 sons, Nick, Manos, and Alex.

Evie, like every Greek mom, knows how to cook very well. She always wanted to use quality olive oil in her recipes, but she couldn’t find anything close to the family’s olive oil. Every time we would visit the family back in Greece, we would all carry large tins of oil through Customs while coming back to Cincinnati. As fun as this was, it still meant that we could only enjoy the taste of the village for a short time.

Through the years, Evie’s friends and family in America requested she bring back bottles for them. Owing to our strong ties to the Cretan way of life and the desire to share quality products with others, we began importing olive oil in larger quantities. Our family takes pride in bringing you our olive oil directly from our very own olive groves in our village, Stavies.

Products We Sell:
Olive oil from the family’s land in Greece, finished and sold from their shop in Montgomery. Also, infused and flavored olive oils, balsamic vinegar, olive salad, and spices.

Our Practices:
For the production of our olive oil, we do not spray the trees and we do not use pesticides.  We fertilize them every other year with fertilizers approved by the European Union.  For our infused olive oil we use dry spices so that there is no risk of bacterial creation.  When possible, organic spices are used.
