The Spice Merchant
1300 E. Douglas Avenue, Wichita
A pinch of this, and a pinch of that. Whatever spices home chefs need, Wichita’s premier spice store, The Spice Merchant, carries it. Owner Bob Boewe opened the store after exploring ethnic groceries in St. Louis. Since 1980, it has provided cooks with traditional and exotic spices sold in bulk. Years later, the store expanded to a historic building providing room for nearly 200 herbs and aromatic spices, whole bean coffee and gourmet condiments.
On the hunt for cabinet classics like granulated onion or smoked paprika? Spice bags are sold in sizes up to 4 oz. Hard-to-find exotic spices, such as Vietnamese cinnamon, are always in stock. If shoppers have questions about what seasoning to use in a recipe, a helpful staff member is ready to listen and give advice. Prefer seasoning blends to prepare bread dipping oil or spreads for crackers? Ask about custom seasoning packets.

The couple sells jarred spices and more than a dozen dry soup selections at the western Kansas store. The shop’s owners and their families are happy to assist customers in finding all-purpose spices or blends like their Chili Verde and Italian Spaghetti Sauce that elevate classic recipes.
