Update from the Tucker Farmers' Market

I went to the Tucker Farmers' Market for the first time this year and, to make a long story short, went crazy. This is a small market but with a high proportion of vendors who sell very high quality food. I thought I would tell you about two of those vendors.

This gentleman---a condiment hybridizing engineer, no less---introduced me to Sinclair's Sauce. I can assure you that the sauce is very tasty despite that "G" on the label---must be a printing error or something. It isn't your standard Western-style ketchupy sauce. Instead, it mixes some East Coast flavors along with its tomatoes. It has a vinegary tang and I detected a bit of mustard, too. I think this will go superbly with pork, which I hope to try soon. Luckily, my bottle doesn't have that unsightly typo on it.

This very nice lady is the creator if Island Spiced Bakes and Bites. She offers take-home portions of her cakes. I took home a piece of the rum cake, which I greatly enjoyed. It was rich, sweet, and moist but in very good balance, with nothing overpowering. She was very modest---I had to twist her arm to let me take this photo---and very talented.
