Sonoma Spice Queen sets up shop in Petaluma

Andrew H | Jun 5, 201505:02 PM    

A great new addition to Petaluma's plethora of producers is Sonoma Spice Queen at 407 C Street. Open for just a month, this spot just south of downtown should be on everyone's short list when coming to Petaluma.

Wind McAlister takes great care to select organic whole spices to roast and blend in small batches. The results are simply marvelous. The aromas drifting around the shop may cause delirium if you're not careful.

I had a great 15 minutes talking with her about spices, but I can see spending all afternoon there. She's very friendly and an affable business owner but she takes her blends very seriously.

One other thing, the shop is without any of the silly tchotchkes and knick-knacks often found in specialty shops. Its all about the spice. She does also carry a small selection of ultra fine teas made by another producer.
