3. Coco Jack @ C19: Bringing us great new way to open & scoop coconuts this summer, this fun vendor recently graced television on Shark Tank (Who’s a Shark Tank fan here?) and landed a deal with Mark Cuban. Coco Jack opens fresh coconuts safely in seconds – no matter your size or strength. There is also a scoop to get nearly all the meat out in one scoop. Check them out and enjoy a fresh coconut as well!

4. Bacon Jerky (Banzai Jerky @ C24): Who doesn’t like bacon?! This long time vendor has been giving us sweet, sweet instant bacon since the beginning. Seriously, have some bacon. We’ve been stockpiling their yummy bacon jerkies for awhile now, so grab some before they run out.

6. Fusion poutine fries (The Poutine Stand @ D13): What is poutine fries? It’s french fries + cheese curds + gravy, a Canadian classic that just hit our market. The Poutine Stand is a new food venture that’s putting a twist on the Canadian fast food classic. In addition to the classic elements of French fries, cheese curds, and gravy, The Poutine Stand takes inspiration from numerous Asian cuisines to create something completely new. One of their most popular dishes is the Little Saigon Poutine, which takes the Canadian classic and tops it with savory Vietnamese Shaken Beef, pickled onions, and a refreshing lime vinaigrette.

Inspired by luxury candy, their single-use hand & body scrubs provide the perfect amount of exfoliation whether at home or on-the-go. We were dragged over by other people raving about their hand scrub+moisturizer (Scrub 2 Go). We tried it and it made our hands so soft and silky that instantly rivaled a baby’s bottom. It’s wonderful. Try it!
