About Us / Nightshade Army Industries History: In the fall of 2010 we started selling hot sauce & salsa at the Downtown Ypsilanti Farmer's Market as a way to use up the surplus peppers, tomatoes & tomatillos we had grown in various urban gardens around Ypsilanti. When the Cottage Food Bill passed in Ypsi in July of that year, many people got excited about the cottage production of value-added farm products. However, since hot sauce & salsa are not covered by that legislation, the rest is history. Today we are a licensed, locally-owned food business that offers locally-grown, artisan products direct to you. Ypsi-Grown, Ypsi-Made! Grown at various urban farms around Ypsi, made in the kitchen of Beezy's cafe, and sold at the Downtown Ypsilanti Farmer's Market (DYFM), Depot Town Ypsilanti Farmer's Market, and now also at the Ann Arbor Wednesday Evening Market, all our Nightshade Army Industries hot sauce, salsa and garlic/chili paste are all-natural, preservative free & local from start to finish. Although not organically certified, all of our products are grown using organic practices that include extensive seed-saving of heirloom varieties, companion planting, composting and season-extension techniques, as well as the re-using and re-purposing of sustainable materials in growing, harvesting, and marketing.
