Rudy's Paletas

Rudy’s was born from a desire to enjoy a refreshing summer treat without worrying about artificial flavours or colours. It arose from a craving for handcrafted, pure fruit goodness — locally sourced, dairy-free and simply delicious.

Red Cap Hot Sauce Co.

Red Cap Hot Sauce puts “flavour first, heat second.” We bring you the most authentic Trini-style pepper sauce. Peppa’ Sauce as we like to call it, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before!

We have one sauce — it’s our family recipe, the one we grew up with on the kitchen counter. After sharing it with so many friends, we’d like to share it with you!

When people try our sauce, the common reaction is that it’s very “fresh!”. We’d love for you to try a sample — whether you’re ‘new to spice’ or a die hard spice warrior, we’re sure you’ll agree that our sauce is quite flavourful.

We used to live near Locke Street, and still live nearby in Burlington. We use local ingredients whenever possible, and all our current batches are made with 100% Ontario-grown scotch bonnet and red bell peppers.

Hotti Biscotti

As a young girl, Debby dreamt of one day running her own bakery. As a single mother, Debby worked as an optician for 35 years to financially support herself and her son. In 2009, Debby finally took the risk, and began to pursue her dream.  

Initially starting with a family biscotti recipe, Debby began to find fun and delicious ways to add innovation to her biscotti. Gaining praise over her softer biscotti, new desserts began flooding out of her tiny 200 square-foot bakery and into cafés and restaurants throughout Hamilton.

Hotti Biscotti began their new chapter in April 2020 when they moved into the historic Hamilton Farmers’ Market. Now, you’ll be able to find Debby happily baking away in her bright little corner of the market!
