Hey fellow Chowhounds.
I'm an avid fan of Penzey's Spices, a mailorder shop out of Wisconsin. I've had the good fortune to actually visit one of the shops, and it's an amazing place if you are a cook or simply appreciate fresh spices. They have a great selection that runs the gamut - arrowroot to cumin, garam masala to sausage spices.
So far the only way to get Penzey's out here is via mail order. However they are running a simple contest to determine where their next store will open - basically whichever city sends the most postcards to the founder gets it. Details are in the link below.
If you are a fan check it out - Penzey's would be a great addition to the Boston culinary scene.
