“Life and Style: Victoria Stewart Salsa 101” —

EVERY WEEK AT the Sunday Chimacum Farmers Market you can find Victoria Stewart under her festive umbrella, selling homemade salsa.

She and her husband live six months in Mexico tending their mango farm and six months on the North Olympic Peninsula tending their salsa garden and selling salsa.

Although the salsa sells out every week, the retired Seattle Mexican restaurant owner has no interest in expanding the business.

“I enjoy spending time in the garden and kitchen,” she says.

“I don’t want to do the factory thing again. We had 15 employees, and you really aren’t doing the things you love, which is experimenting in the kitchen and cooking. This is a nice level of business for us.”
