Featured Local Vendor-Glover's Pepper Sauce
Thursday, October 10th
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Whole Foods Vienna, FREE

Our featured local vendor for the month of October will be here to demo Glover's Pepper Sauce! Come try this amazing sauce. From the vendor...

 

What is Glover's Pepper Sauce?

It is a finely pureed Pepper Relish. It is different than anything on the market, or anything you have ever tried. Blend it with other sauces, use it as a dipping condiment on your plate, marinade with it, grill with it, cook with it and eat it raw. This is something new, addictive and amazing. I guarantee it. My name is on every bottle, it has to be good or I don’t sell it. My goal is to bring a unique flavor to you – one bottle at a time.
