10 Latinx-Owned Food Businesses To Support This Holiday Season And Beyond

Upgrade your winter with some of the best flavors from Latin America and the Caribbean.

The holidays look a little different because of the pandemic this year, but there’s no reason to forgo traditional flavors or family recipes — especially if you’re used to home-cooked food highlighting the best of Latin America and the Caribbean. 🌶

Whether you’re starting to plan out recipes for your own socially distanced holiday celebration or you want to support inclusive brands by scooping up delicious gifts for friends, here are ten Latinx-owned small businesses offering homemade sauces, seasonings, desserts, and more.


Pisqueya, a brand of handcrafted hot sauces made with island ingredients from the Dominican Republic.


The Freakin Rican, a New York restaurant that ships its fan-favorite seasonings and pasteles across the country.

This restaurant in Astoria, Queens has become somewhat of a local institution — thanks to its Puerto Rican dishes like slow-roasted pernil, mofongo, and chicken chicharron. But for anyone who wants to try these specialities in their own kitchen, executive chef Derick Lopez has got you covered with an online shop that sells homemade sofrito, sazon, and adobo seasonings. And if you need dessert options ahead of the holidays, Lopez also serves up tasty pasteles by the dozen.

Shop seasonings from The Freakin Rican starting at $5.99, or order a dozen pasteles for $50.


A Dozen Cousins, a plant protein-powered and ready-to-eat line of beans that draws its inspiration from Creole, Caribbean, and Latin American recipes.


Todo Verde, a plant-based catering and food company that also offers online cooking classes, curated ingredient bundles, and a beautifully vibrant cookbook.

Todo Verde has always had a startlingly simple proposal: Remind people of the organic and plant-based roots of Latinx culinary traditions. Chef and cookbook author Jocelyn Ramirez has made access to healthy food her mission — and her brand offers delicious vegan alternatives for lovers of Mexican and South American cuisine. Find everything in its online store.

Get a Todo Verde holiday bundle — which includes ingredients to make jackfruit al pastor tacos, a signed ‘La Vida Verde’ cookbook, and a denim tote — for $85. You can also find the cookbook on Amazon for $17.07.


The Cielito Store, a coffee shop that sells one-of-a-kind roasts using Salvadoran, Nicaraguan, and Guatemalan beans.


Flor De Maria, a New York shop that blends high-quality Latin American chocolates and CBD oils for laidback sweets that are also beautifully packaged.


Calabash Tea And Tonic, a Washington, D.C.-based wellness brand that specializes in teas, tonics, spices, and CBD products.

Sunyatta Amen, a fifth-generation herbalist and naturopathic physician, draws from her Jamaican, Cuban, and Native American roots when she’s putting together the teas and tonics at her shops in D.C.’s Shaw and Brookland neighborhoods, and at Calabash’s online store.

Get a Calabash Tea and Tonic gift box that includes CBD tinture, hand soap, and lip scrub, lavender latte blend, hemp hearts, and roasted hemp seeds for $44.95.


AliciasDelicias, a San Diego-based bakery that makes hand-painted sugar cookies that are almost too beautiful to eat.


El Machete, a Los Angeles-bred brand of ultra-hot salsas, moles, tortillas, and other Mexican staples.


Loisa Comida Real, an NYC-based food company making organic seasonings without any filler.

Loisa Comida Real was started by a group of friends (who span Dominican, Peruvian, French, and American backgrounds) tired of Latinx flavors ruined by artificial ingredients and additives. So they decided to strike out and make their own versions of their favorite seasonings, spices, and rices — all of which you can find in their online shop.

Get a Loisa Comida Real gift set that includes a 4-pack of organic sazón and adobo seasonings, plus two eco-friendly dishcloths for $45.97.
