Vendors at Harbourfront Centre for Hot and Spicy Food Festival

Toronto is heating up this summer and so is Harbourfront Centre! Between August 19-21 find the Deep South up north as our Hot and Spicy Food Festival returns for another year. Dance to the hot sounds and savour the spicy cuisine from the mighty Lower Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico, with exciting musical performances and mouth-watering barbecue – Southern Style.

Visit the Lakeview Market where you’ll find a special Red Hot Market section, with vendors specializing in sauces, spreads, dressings and condiments made to get your taste buds running. Burner Pepper Sauce will be on site showcasing its signature Hot Pepper Sauces that come in a variety of different flavours.

Montreal native, Sinai Gourmet will join us so you can get your hands on their amazing sauces. Their sauces range from mild poblano to hotter than hot ghost. Try their Ghost Original and see if you can handle the heat.

Ti Kay La Foods, has your Caribbean needs covered. With a ray of pepper sauces, BBQ sauces, spice rubs and jerk marinades, they’re a one-stop shop for Caribbean cooking.

If you love condiments, The Joy of Harvest is for you. It’s a family owned small business that makes homemade condiments and jams, with a wildberry marmalade perfect for your morning toast.

If cooking isn’t your thing, head over to the World Café where White Gold Sweets will be serving your favourite Indian sweets and snacks and Jerk Vibes will have jerk chicken and rice ready for you to indulge. We’ll also have food trucks on site, like Rebozos with their authentic Mexican cuisine.

The Lakeview Market is full of different types of vendors this weekend. V-Polish will be here selling nail polishes that come in a diverse choice of colours.

Miluz Art and their colourful pieces of jewellery will be on display with eco-friendly and handmade pieces made from South American materials. They’re a true one of a kind piece.
