Made from seed to sauce in Lowell

A Lowell based community sauce

In partnership with the Rist Institute for Sustainability & Energy at UMass Lowell and Mill City Grows.

The Mill City Red is made with peppers started from seed at the UMass Lowell greenhouse and grown atop the O'Leary Library rooftop garden.

About the sauce

This Mill City Red was made from a seed to sauce partnership with UMass Lowell’s Rist Institute for Sustainability & Energy, and Mill City Grows. The peppers were grown atop the O’Leary Library rooftop and harvested by UML students and the Craic Crew.

This classic style, medium heat, hot sauce is hyper-local and has the added zing of fermentation. Our name ‘Craic’ (pronounced krak) is an Irish word for good fun and laughs – a guiding principle that unites sustainability partnerships between the university and community in Lowell.

Where to find Craic Sauce

Craic Sauce is available to students at Fox and South Campus Dining Commons.

Craic Sauce is also available at a number of local Lowell businesses and restaurants like Gormley's Cafe, Navigation Brewery, the newly opened Merrimack Collective and beloved restaurants such as The Old Court, Cobblestones, El Potro, Warp & Weft and Dragonfly Cafe.
