Meet Our Local Vendors

All_Local_Vendors_sm.jpg

Sigona's Farmers Market is proud to work with only the very best local vendors. We personally investigate, taste and compare every single product before ever placing it on our shelves. This "Pespi challenge" mentality ensures that our customers always have access to the finest items around.

We also spend a ton of time chatting and visiting with our vendors. This is how we make sure we're always on top of the latest and greatest items out there so that we're one of the first to carry their delectable goodies.

Company: California Naturals

Owner(s) Name: Peter Walsh & Melanie Carroll

Products: Kahe Sparkling Nectars 

Peter and Melanie had grown tired with the sameness of beverages on grocery store shelves and thought it was time to shake up the world of beverages with something flavorful, refreshing and unique that people can feel good about drinking. With this in mind, Peter, who grew up in Atherton, Calif., and Melanie experimented with flavors and juices in their small cottage kitchen in Atherton. They settled on the three flavors of Kahe we carry today – Bing Cherry, Passion Fruit and Kiwifruit – using no artificial ingredients or sugar, just unique sweeteners Stevia and Xylitol. What’s more is Kahe has a low glycemic index and a low calorie count!

About: Heba Badran learned from her mother how to make traditional baklava the dessert at age 10. Coming from three generations of pastry connoisseurs, all of whom specialized in French pastries, she quickly learned how to make other pastries too, such as orange tea cakes.

After a few years of working in corporate America, Heba decided to follow her first and true passion to the kitchen where she began making baklava and other from-scratch treats and dips to sell at the farmers market and other local specialty shops. Look for her hummus next time you come by to shop!
