Get ready to take an olfactory world tour. As you walk through the door, you are engulfed in the aroma of an exotic spice market, the enticing smells of far away lands, and gourmet foods. Have you visited World Spice at Pike’s Market? It is actually on Western Ave., behind the market, and a bit of a secret, but definitely a great stop when you are in the neighborhood.
They offer pretty much every spice of which I have ever dreamed, and a few of which I have never even heard. They prepare their own recipes of spice blends, or yours on request. All are fresh, pungent, and delicious. When it’s time to restock the spice jars, make it a point to visit World Spice Merchants. I want to go back, just for the aromatherapy!
