Best Florida Locally Sourced Freshly Made Jams and Jellies are hands down made by Meli Gusto. Melissa the founder and owner of Meli Gusto came to Florida from a small suburb of Paris, France.
She began working in a farmers market at the young age of 15 while also attending school for tourism. After school, her passion for travel and food brought her around the world where she discovered the eclectic flavor profiles that influence her unique jams.
During her travels to Asia, she learned how different types of food affect your body and health and how to eat with a purpose.
For this reason, Melissa’s creations are all natural, preservatives free, gluten free and she offers many vegan options.
When Melissa arrived in the US and began making her own jams and spreads for her friends, they couldn’t get enough!
She knew that she wanted to share her passion with a wider audience.
Because Melissa’s recipes are influenced by her travels, the flavors are wildly different than the standard jams you will find in your local grocery store. They are named for the cities that inspired them. They range from a sweet, tropical pineapple coconut to a spicy pear habanero to a savory jalapeños bell pepper.
All ingredients are locally sourced and freshly made. Flavors change with the season and availability so you can always expect something new. With the success of her jams, Melissa decided to branch out into others spreads and authentic Mexican salsa.
Her energy balls will give you an all natural boost without any added sugar. They are a smart and delicious snack for an active life style.
Every Sunday Meli Gusto has a booth at the Siesta Key Farmers Market located on the beautiful barrier island of Siesta Key, Florida. The market hours are 9am to 1pm at 5104 Ocean Blvd in the Village of Siesta Key, Florida.
The Best Homemade Salsa For Sale In Florida hands down is Chillihead Salsa. Period!
Soup to salsa! The story behind the sweet red crack . . .
Chilihead started in 1997. Tyson Wolters, after many libations, was snowed in a farm house in Eastern Washington. After many hours of boredom and inevitable hunger, he found a whole box of tomatoes, and decided to attempt to make tomato soup.
He found it needed pepper. He ended up using jalapeños because he couldn’t find any. The next morning his dad tried and said to him, “I don’t know what you were doing in here last night, but this is the best salsa I’ve ever eaten.”
The best part is that it was an accident, in our opinion.
Skip ahead to 1999, Tyson and his Wife moved to Key West and he was the night kitchen manager of the Hogs Breath Saloon. The Tyson burger is still on the menu. This is where the salsa began to develop a little more. The access to new spices from the Caribbean really made it begin to take form.
In 2006, in Sarasota, he was researching tomato soup recipes trying to figure out how the two correlated. He was introduced to prominent tomato growers in the central/SW Florida area. He realized they weren’t utilizing the waste from the tomatoes and proposed the idea of using it for making his Salsa for his tomato soup recipe.
Because of the influence of the diverse cultures of being in the tropics, he started developing the Salsa further, instead of the soup. He had access to large amounts of the produce he needed and was able to refine the product, and pick up larger accounts in town, such as O’LEARYS.
In 2013, Tyson and Julia met when their bands played together for a benefit in town, that his company was donating for. In 2016, Chilihead had become too busy for one man to handle, and after a few meetings (and a few beers) they decided to take the leap to the next step.
When your belly rumbles and all you can think of is savory, sweet red tomatoes and spicy, crisp peppers swirling about in your mouth, than welcome to the dangers of becoming a Chilihead Salsa Addict…
Salsa lovers beware…your taste buds are in for a surprise when they try our sweet red crack!
PSA: We lost our conscience in the making of this product and accept zero responsibility for any addictive behaviors that users may come across. Until further examined by FDA, we highly recommend devouring this product in high doses until belly ache is achieved!
Why try to compete with the masses? We don’t make the same boring metallic tasting salsa produced at the same factory as your cheesy poof chips…
Our salsa is made batch by batch that our passion – my art is creating a delicious and surprising menu that will overwhelm your every sense.
Want to share the love of Salsa at events, private parties and more. Drop us a line or give us a call.

Art is infinite and there are no limitations to the imagination, so you will have no problem finding what you are looking for.
