Featured Exhibitor: Croix Valley Foods


Croix Valley Foods is your one-stop-shop for amazing flavors, fun recipes, and all natural products. Damon and Lu Holter are a competitive cooking duo whose recipes have won them countless awards and features. Their dry rubs, sauces, and marinades are the perfect gifts for the avid grill master and foodie in your life! 



Who are you and what do you do?

We are husband and wife team, Damon and Lu Holter. We are Croix Valley Foods, producers of the Croix Valley line of sauces, dry rubs, Bloody Mary seasonings, and marinades. We are also a competition cooking team that travels all over the country and have been featured on Food Network, Outside Television, and lots of local Twin Cities stations!

What do your customers love most about your product(s)?

Our customers love our unique flavors, fun recipes, and that all of our products are all natural and gluten free. Customers also enjoy our videos, Facebook posts (including lots of Facebook live videos), and our website full of fun recipes, tips, and tricks.


What do you love most about craft show vending?

We love vending at craft shows because it gives us the opportunity to share our products and passion for cooking with people in a fun, high energy way! It’s fun to talk to people about the uses of the products as they are trying them. We’ve gotten our most loyal customers from craft shows.

Is this a full-time business for you?

Yes! This is a full time business for both myself and my husband. We are passionate about our products and love what we do! We have our own production facility in River Falls, WI and handcraft all of our products in small batches insuring the quality and consistency.

What has been your favorite moment since creating your business?

We love traveling and competing in food sport, steak competitions, and BBQ competitions (using our products) across the country. My favorite moment was having both my husband and I place in the top ten at the World Food Championships in 2014 and again in 2017. We also travel annually to the American Royal World Series of Barbecue in Kansas City and have done very well there, with our best being a 1st place call in sausage!
