Chefmon is passionate about cooking food, especially the slow method that allows palette-pleasing flavors to develop naturally, Palmer has created Jamaican style marinades, seasonings and sauces.

There is nothing bland about the condiments he markets under the Jamaican Chefmon moniker. Using a secret blend of hot peppers, spices, herbs and vegetables, he makes fresh batches of fiery sauces and marinades every week. The results are spicy condiments free of chemical preservatives.

“My motto is ‘only the best is good enough,


Five years ago his partner, Patricia convinced him to start bottling all the fiery goodness. His first attempts included a jerk marinade, Jamaican dry rub, a fusion form of jerk chicken spring rolls and a strawberry vinaigrette salad dressing thus Jamaican Chefmon was born.

Now in his fourth year at the market, Palmer has expanded to high-in-demand hot sauces, Jamaican beef patties, jerk chicken patties and a traditio am - nal Caribbean rum cake.
