3 ripe peaches, chopped
1 T lemon juice
2 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 tiny onion (preferably red), minced
2 or 3 jalapeno peppers, minced
1 T cilantro, coarsely chopped

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate at least five minutes before testing. You may want to add more jalapeƱo or vinegar, or if too acidic, add a dash of honey. Serve with tortilla chips or over pork.

Del Carmen has been a vendor for Fair Shares for 3+ years now.  We have developed a quality relationship based on trust. Our communications have been seamless. In addition, Fair Shares and its members have been great marketers for our products.  As a (very) small business, we are unable to advertise or market our products, so we have to rely on word of mouth.  Many of our customers are, were, or know Fair Shares members who have recommended our products.

Del Carmen has also benefitted from valuable ideas for use of existing products and suggestions in product development from the Fair Shares community.  I go to them for feedback, knowing I will get good, reliable and useful information.

We thank you, Fair Shares, for your support and commitment to del Carmen. We wish you much continued success.  After all, your success also helps the success of del Carmen and other local vendors and farmers.
