Lenox and Lenni Malcolm are the duo behind the family owned and operated Hummingbird Café, one of our newest food vendors at the Saturday morning market.
This fun couple have both been cooking their entire life. Lenox’s family is from Jamaica and Lennis is from Louisiana and every single one of their recipes at the Hummingbird Café pulls on old family recipes and cooking techniques grounded in two of the most flavorful locations on the planet!
The couple actually connected over food when they first met. Over the years they would enjoy cooking for friends and family, and after much prompting from loved ones they finally decided to go into business in January of 2015. The Hummingbird Café was officially born! (Name inspired over the hummingbird being the national bird of Jamaica.)
The Malcolm’s enjoy creating flavorful jerk chicken that is smoked and grilled to perfection using various hand mixed and family recipe inspired spices – and they keep their unique cuisine on the spicier side! While the couple started out at our markets with some classic Jamaican staples, they are slowly adding to their ever expanding menu, with new items like curry chicken with rice, and fried plantains.
This cheerful couple and their delicious cuisine are quickly becoming a favorite of farmers market regulars, selling out of their signature chicken almost every weekend, so stop by to say hi and come early to grab your plate of Jamaican jerk chicken!
The Malcolm’s love meeting new people and are having fun discovering who their regulars are.. give their food a try, and you just might be one of them!
