Our Story

The Allspicery is the brainchild of Heather Wong, who in 2015 was inspired by her deep and lifelong love of flavor to pursue a career in spices.  Starting from the time she was a little girl baking sweet treats with her Easy Bake Oven, Heather has always had a passion for cooking and discovering new ingredients and culinary techniques.  Later in life she developed a serious passion for travel, which now serves as her biggest culinary inspiration.

After growing frustrated with the scarcity of ethnic spices in the Sacramento area, Heather finally decided to open the kind of shop that she had always dreamed of - one that would allow her to learn and continue her exploration of exotic cuisines.  On a whim, she submitted her idea into the Downtown Sacramento Foundation's third annual Calling All Dreamers competition, and the rest, as they say, is history!

As the Allspicery team eagerly prepares for its grand opening, we look forward to serving the Sacramento foodie community! From allspice to za'atar, we have it all.  Come in and be inspired.
