TELL OUR CUSTOMERS WHY YOUR BRAND IS THE BEST 

"Three Rivers Salsa" is the Greatest Salsa for every Pittsburgher! I dare you to try it on your breakfast burrito! Not into eggs? Slather that flavorful goodness on your avo. There is nothing better than a jar over your crockpot chicken on rice with corn & beans- You've got dinner right there! 


We have invested 5 years working diligently to bring you "Three Rivers Salsa," a brand we can proudly stand behind and call our own. It has been featured as "Product of the Week" in several grocery stores, as well as incorporated into several foodie blogs. We can all agree that a fresh salsa made with solely vegetables and spices is the best! We have been careful to make sure there are no preservatives or vinegar in our recipe. In this way our salsa has a full-flavor experience every time, whether you add it to a favorite dish and cook it in, or it's the star of the show with some veggies or chips!

WHAT IS YOUR STORY? 

My name is Jessica and I am half Italian (with a hint of Lithuanian) & half Mexican. I grew up in PA & I absolutely love my city of Pittsburgh! From Date Nights on the town, Farmers Markets, STEELERS, PIRATES, PENGUINS, Cultural events, & shows this is the BEST city with the BEST people! I am a proud Mama of three DREAM kids! I love showing them a dream can become reality. Hard work, sacrifice, & persistence really DO pay off!  


The Salsa dream began in my heart and then onto many tables including family, close friends, then to neighbors & beyond. My husband Martin has not only been my personal cheerleader but has supported my dream in every way imaginable. No one will ever truly know our late nights of salsa production, crunching numbers, or sprinting towards deadlines better than him! Together, Martin & I dreamt this Salsa company into a plan of action. We have invested our summers to weekly Farmers Markets (Which is quite the juggle with 3 kids!), fundraisers, and local events to show our love and support for our community. We love getting involved with local collabs and supporting other small business owners. Together we really are much stronger! Our ‘leaps of faith’ have become the pillars of success we continue to embrace. 


WHAT PRODUCT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT AND WHY? 

"Three Rivers Salsa", Sweet Medium can now be purchased at the Mt. Washington love, Pittsburgh location. Our salsa is for the true Pittsburgh lover as the Black & Gold label can be easily spotted! This is a perfect gift or souvenir. Let's be honest though, just grab an extra to enjoy for yourself. You will soon discover this salsa is extremely addicting! Once you try a taste it is a difficult craving to deny. We love providing you with the best! 


IN THREE WORDS, WHY DO YOU LOVE PITTSBURGH?

 It's MY CITY!

It’s the BEST salsa you could have. I’ve used it in my meatloaf, nachos, rice, soup and other dishes. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked!!
