You’ll need to find commercial kitchen space if you’re a secondary producer (jams, breads, salsa – stuff that you didn’t grow yourself). And what the market really wants right now are: 1) Gluten-free bakery, 2) Full dairy, and 3) Fish.

Manos de Maiz, Washington, DC
Inspired by the tradition of growing maize, the oldest grain in the world. Corn was first domesticated in Mesoamerica and it has always been, the basis of Mexican cuisine. Joahna Hernandez, a keen advocate of tradition and Mexican culture, founded Manos de Maiz to bring the real flavors of corn to DC. As a Mexican national who grew up eating fresh tortillas there is nothing that makes her feel closer to her roots, than the taste of fresh ground corn.
Manos de Maiz celebrates the work of local farmers who harvest the original races of corn not only as a way of living but as a complete way to understand the world and surroundings. It’s the corn what makes Manos de Maiz a unique culinary experience and we want you to be part of it. At Manos de Maiz we honor tradition and we put in on your plate.
Number 1 Sons: Arlington, VA
Number 1 Sons is a brother-sister team making barrel fermented foods. Simple and delicious food has been a constant in our life: our mom never made a birthday cake from a box and family dinners included plenty of vegetables and a fresh salad. Number 1 Mom taught us that good food shouldn’t be complicated – it can be made with simple, quality ingredients using traditional processes.
Number 1 Sons makes fermented foods that draw from all over the world — pickles, kimchi, kraut and more! These foods harken to the traditional Chinese fermented foods and the vegetable-heavy dinners that Number 1 Mom makes for her family.
We combine Number 1 Mom’s philosophy with our love for all things fermented like kimchis, krauts and pickles. When in season, our vegetables are grown by farmers in the surrounding states. Naturally delicious microbes from fermentation, like the good bacteria lactic acid, preserve our foods and give them a delicious, sour and tangy taste. Some of our foods harken to a New York Jewish deli, others to a Korean root cellar. Our barrels change with seasonal and culinary inspiration. Bottled kombucha too.
