Our Story

We are a small, independently owned and operated family business in the beautifully historic Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, just 20 minutes from Center City. After becoming first-time parents to our son in February 2016, we began to search for local places that did not require a trip into the center of the city, just to obtain spices, herbs and organic ingredients to use, for cooking his food , since it has been homemade, from the age of 6 months.. After a few “investigative” trips to several local grocery stores, and spending close to three hours reading the back of the plastic, and some glass spice containers the ingredients lists seemed more like scientific terms to say the least.

At that point we went searching for a local store that took the guess work out of cooking with quality ingredients. To our surprise we didn’t find anything that really encompassed what we were hoping to find in our community. So, after lots of careful consideration, combined with the need for a knowledgeable small batch gourmet spice shop in our area, with took a leap of faith and founded The Spice Rack.
