This place is a little pricey for a chain store, but the ingredients are ground in store so everything is very fresh. They also have different sections (pepper, salt, tea, spices). I think it’s worth stopping by if you have some time on Market Street.

WOW! Amazing the amount of variety they carry. From all different types of salts and mixed salts to an array of pre-mixed spices. The tea section is delicious as well. Worth every penny. Explore your senses!
