Variety is the spice of life, they say, but in the world of spices, the saying is probably more along the lines of "spices bring variety to life."
A new shop in Marquette, the Spice Merchants of Marquette
, would love to add some of that variety -- via spices -- to your meals.
"Expanding your knowledge in cooking with unusual spices, herbs and flavors," the company's Facebook says. "Exploring new and creative ways to spice up your life."
Located at 106 West Washington St. in downtown Marquette, the company offers up a slew of different options for you to add to your cuisine -- and it's not just limited to individual spices, herbs and the like. They have a nice variety of blended options, too, like a coffee barbeque rub, a nice raspberry chipotle blend and various rubs and mixtures for all tastes (try the devil's dust -- it sounds spicy and wonderful). Individual spices range from typical Indian curry to more difficult-to-find-locally spices like garam masala or seven seas blends. And the list goes on and on.
Additionally, the Spice Merchants of Marquette offer up other items for sale, like pots, grinders, cook books and mortar and pestle.
