Local Spicery is very like-minded for our ideals. The company has all the makings of the artisans and producers we like to support, since they are locally based and put a premium on quality and freshness.

One of our customers told me with great joy on her face that [Local Spicery] "changed my life." It was a bit mystifying to imagine that spices could, indeed, make a person so happy. Maybe you better not miss out?

Belizean jerk rub is a portrait of pitch-perfect aroma and flavors,

[Stinson Rub] is a really great blend. Not spicy but has a ton of flavor and a nice balance of herb and spice. Love it on seared flank steak and good on roasted chicken as well. Just about to try it as a base for a brisket marinade.
Their fans know they can depend on them for intriguing blends (and excellent advice on how to use them).

[Za'atar] is fantastic. It improves cooked vegetables & salads, either sprinkled on top or cooked in during sauté. Whenever something tastes a little bland now I reach for the Za'atar.
WOW, WOW, & WOW!!!.... This is the best [Chipotle Sea Salt] by FAR that I have tried & I have tried many many spiced up salts. The Chipotle heat is somewhat mild but it's there for sure,the smoky flavor of the Chipotle is great & I think the use of the pink salt is a great awesome decision.... a must have if you ask me... puts a whole new level on adding a bit of [salt] to your cucumber or watermelon! [...]a great add on to fish & chicken yumyummy
This [Grapefruit Risotto], which makes a lovely first course, is inspired...in part by ground cardamom from the Local Spicery, which attends two farmers markets in Sonoma County.

[Garden Gems] is amazing in your morning egg white omelet with spinach and feta cheese. YUMMY!!!
I usually am pretty snooty and like blending and grinding my own spices as I cook, but I have so far really enjoyed all of the LS blends I have tried.
A coworker and I were treated to your spices as a Christmas gift. Being located in Memphis, the spices are a really special treat!! My compliments for creating an outstanding product!!
Our editor's personal favorite [buffalo milk gelato], ginger, is made with freshly ground-to-order ginger sourced from Nicholas Davoren and Evelyn Wood, owners of Marin's Local Spicery.

The Morita pepper spice and Berbere were excellent on our pumpkin seeds last night. It's a great Halloween kick!
[R]ecently I tasted Local Spicery's 'Bistro Blend,' a combination of four varieties [of chiles], including jalapeño. That jalapeño adds a dimension that I love in certain dishes, as it contributes what I call a green flourish. It's particularly delicious with queso fundido,

Monday afternoon I picked up my first Spicery order -- Fine Herbes and Herbes de Provence -- and I have been using them liberally in my soups and omelets this week. I am a HAPPY man!
Local Spicery has been selling impeccable blends, salts, and whole spices at the Marin Farmers Market and online for some time; now the family team of Nick Davoren, Evelyn Wood and their daughter Rachel have a brick-and-mortar site...where customers can visit two days a week to pick up prepaid orders and experience the fragrant atmosphere.

[Dawn] is great in Straus unflavored yogurt with some seasonal berries or fruit. Also, it makes a a great spice for rice and on popcorn. Love this product.
My mom gave me a gift box at Christmas, and I have loved your blends. Excited to have some more.
Chermoula is a great flavor for just about any meat or vegetable dish. It was the perfect amount of zing for this Tilapia.
I bought your Saigon cinnamon on Saturday and mixed it this morning with a cup of greek yogurt.... YUM!!! I thought it would be "more" cinnamon, but instead it has a rich flavor all its own.
[French Vinaigrette is] easy to throw together and super tasty!!
Public service announcement: if you add a little bit of the fine ground Bistro Blend and some cinnamon to basic hot chocolate, it will absolutely blow your mind.
Thank you for your incredible spices. Wow!
Best hidden gem in Tiburon! I love that it's a family business. The daughter, or tea guru herself, gave excellent advice on how to best prepare the brew...
