Holmes-made salsa is an extension of Holmes Produce, our family produce business established in 1924 by Ollie Holmes (grandpa) This Wichita tradition continued with his two sons Wendell and Bruce who supplied many of the local grocers with the freshest fruits and vegetables available. Bruce and his daughter (Tricia) created a summer tradition making salsa from garden fresh produce. Tricia continued this tradition by making salsa for family, friends, and co-workers. When the requests to replenish salsa kept flowing in, she realized the plan God had put in place for her, and accepted it graciously. Tricia started selling Holmes-Made Salsa downtown at the Farmers Market, on the very same corner that her grandpa Ollie use to sell produce. With the help of family and friends, the salsa business has expanded to a new location at 2252 N Coolidge, Wichita,Ks.
We continue spreading the word about our salsa through various consumer shows, festivals, and by word of mouth. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to open our online store so we can share the taste of Holmes-Made Salsa with everyone who loves it as much as we do!
Holmes-Made Salsa is still canned the old-fashioned way in our certified kitchen in Wichita. Since pepper heat is not always consistent, taste tests are performed on each batch by our team of professional chip and salsa connoisseurs (our wonderful family) to insure quality.
We look forward to filling your order and satisfying your requests for truly
The Holmes Family
