No matter where you live, there’s no denying the trend towards locally sourced food. But when we think local, we usually think produce. There is of course, a growing trend of local business owners crafting anything from beer to soda to sauces, right here in our backyard. Mary Marino, Jo Anne Elsbury and Marlow Italiano are three ladies who shared a vision of changing the way people eat, one sauce at a time, and they’re based here in Stoney Creek.
