Business Overview

Our Story

Oaktown Spice Shop is a joyful stop on the errand routine. Customers can step into a beautiful, nostalgic and aromatic world, smell their way through glass jars of spices, have a conversation about their next meal with the staff, and find inspiration for their cooking.

The conversation may be about how to liven up the weekly baked chicken tradition. Other times, it’s about finding the elusive ingredients for a particular dish or cuisine, or learning how an unfamiliar spice can be used. Our shops are located in Oakland, California’s Grand Lake neighborhood and on Solano Avenue in Albany, California.

We focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice that we can find, which entails working with hundreds of different importers. We grind spices ourselves, in our shop, every week or two. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.

Our spice blends are signature recipes, hand-mixed in the shop using our freshly ground spices. Some, like our Santa Fe Chili Powder, are our versions of well-known favorites, while others, such as the Grand Lake Shake or Umami Sea Salt, are our own inventions, born of curiosity and adventures in the kitchen.

Why Work With Us?

It's important to us to be good employers and provide good jobs. We offer medical and dental benefits as well as paid time off to our full-time employees. We have a matching retirement savings plan available to all our permanent hires.
