A New In-Person (Yet Contactless) Way to Shop Fresh Spices in Louisville KY

Since moving our business (and ourselves) to Louisville in 2018, we’ve been blown away by locals’ support of our business. So many Louisvillians now shop online with us and get their spices delivered to their door or they pick them up at our secure lockers outside our Mellwood Art Center factory. We, along with our fair-trade farmers, are beyond grateful for the support!

Many locals have asked if we’re going to open up a retail storefront. Unfortunately, our factory has to be closed to the public for health and safety reasons and we don’t have plans for a retail store, but we’ve created a fun way to still be able to shop in person thanks to our new spice vending machine.

It’s literally the first of its kind, and we hope you love it. Come by and check it out! With a swipe of a credit card, you can pick up fresh spices virtually any day or time. Here’s all the details:

Location: 1860 Mellwood Avenue, right outside of Suite #268, just inside the doors up the ramp and to the left of the rear loading dock (see google directions here)

 

Hours: Open to the public everyday, 8am-10pm EST,

 

Payment Methods: It only accepts credit cards

 

How it Works: Enter your credit card, wait for it to accept it (it’ll tell you), then pull out your credit card and make your selection. Right now you can only purchase one item per credit card transaction, so if you want more than one spice, you have to enter your credit card again. We know that’s a bit of a pain, so we’re working on solutions to make multiple purchases easier in the future.
