The market has so many unusual places to explore, but the intoxicating aromas we encountered made our next discovery easy to find, but even harder to leave. Lisa Freeman owns The Spice Merchants shop at Kerrytown, and she puts more spice into her life than most people do in a lifetime. I had no idea how many spices there were. From common spices like cinnamon and cumin to more exotic ones like cardamom and saffron, this place will totally spice up your life. The Spice Merchant is like a three dimensional spice rack with all the flavors of the world at your fingertips. Lisa took a personal passion and turned it into a thriving Michigan business. She really is the original spice girl. Your nose will tell you where her shop is when you walk by it, and your taste buds will thank you later.
