Claremont Spice & Dry Goods
12 Tremont St. Claremont, New Hampshire USA

Our shop, located just off of the square in the heart of historic downtown Claremont, is a feast for the senses. Come in, and the aroma of fresh spices assails you. Browse the spice wall, open any of the sample jars provided, and think of how that spice would work in a new dish. The palette of colors the spices provide lets you know that they are fresh. Then be surprised by the price!

We specialize in providing fresh spices and herbs at an affordable price.
We source gourmet quality spices, pack them in house, and provide smaller quantities of fresh spices for the home cook, as well as larger quantities for local food purveyors. We create unique spice blends and mixes both for retail and to order. We only buy enough to keep up with the seasonal demand, and any extras are donated to the Claremont Soup Kitchen, ensuring that our customers only receive the freshest spices.

Rather than buying a big jar and finding it in the cupboard 3 years later, when it has lost all of its aromatic qualities, come here and buy what you need. We package spices in as small as 1/4 oz packages and as big as 4 oz (bigger quantities available upon request, please contact the store to inquire about availability). You can stock up on the pantry essentials, or experiment with unusual spices and blends for new recipes.

Looking for that obscure spice? We probably have it. With over 200 kinds and grinds of spices, sea salts, and blends, we have the largest selection in the area. If you don’t find it let us know, and we’ll try to find it for you.

We also carry local gourmet products, such as the full line of smoked products from North Country Smokehouse, as well as maple syrup, raw honey and 100% grass-fed beef, all made in Claremont. We have fresh roasted coffee from New Hampshire Roasters (Dover, NH), loose leaf tea from A&E Roastery (Amherst, NH), jams and marmalades from Sidehill Farm (Brattleboro, VT), teriyaki sauces  from Vermont Hills Teriyaki (Shrewsbury, VT), and much more.  Fresh, and artisan made, these products are a treat!
