I would like to to sell my homemade salsa and my homemade pastry sauce, but don't know where to start or where to go.

Start with your health department. Also, our state university has a program that provides food science training (see link below). I believe some people have an established manufacturer make the product according to one's recipes.
You will probably have to rent time in a commercial kitchen approved by the local board of health.
I suggest fleamarkets. Put ad in news paper. You may call your health department to get more info, good luck.
Well if it was me the first thing I would try is a little Ma/Pa shop grocery or gas station.
Then I would try a Mexican restaurant for the salsa, see if they would buy it off you for their customers and offer jars at the check out for people to purchase. Is that other a pastry sauce or PASTA sauce?
