Hot Sauce Store Review: The Instant Caterer
The Instant Caterer has been around for ages at the South end of the St. Lawrence Market. I used to frequent it regularly to see what collectibles they were selling at regular prices unknowingly. After I had joined the HSB I had visited them to do an initial store review and also would assist customers with hot sauce selections but was promptly thrown out of the store by the lady that holds the regular shift during the day.
At that time the sauces were limited and were brutally over priced. I used to call the place the Instant Rip Off (aside from the few collectibles I was able to get). Then I finally met the owner Stephen. I introduced myself and told him about his products (and how over priced they were) and told him about products he should consider carrying. Lo and behold a few weeks later I visit and the shelves have been expanded, restocked with new items and prices adjusted fairly. This is no longer The Instant Rip Off but quite possibly one of the best hot shops now in the city. Not only do they carry hundreds of brands of hot sauces, BBQ sauces, marinades and rubs. They live true to the name of the Instant Caterer. Freezers are stocked with everything imaginable to get a party started off right. From big shin digs to quaint little gatherings.
Next time you can make it down to the Market drop by The Instant Caterer and say hi to Stephen and let him know you read about his store from the HSB.
