Join Our Team

Oaktown Spice Shop opened in December 2011 in the Lake Merritt neighborhood of Oakland. Every day since then, we have been dedicated to selling only the freshest and highest quality spices. We help people with everyday cooking and baking needs while also catering to some of the Bay Area's top chefs and bartenders.

Whether you're cooking at work or making cocktails for a dinner party at your home, we aim to enhance your experience through our expertise and service.

We opened our second retail shop location in Albany in November 2017, and we plan to open a third shop in the Castro Valley Marketplace in early 2020.

It's important to us to be good employers and provide good jobs. We offer medical and dental benefits as well as paid time off to our full-time employees. We have a matching retirement savings plan available to all our permanent hires. 

We are currently hiring Lead Spice Associates for our soon-to-open Castro Valley shop.

Retail Shops Closed // Online Orders Only

We are closed to the public until further notice due to COVID-19 related safety precautions.

But we are fulfilling orders online for front door pickup and shipping! Simply select one of these options at checkout. 

Please note, we are operating with a small crew and in an effort to get orders out in a timely manner, we are unable to take phone orders or same-day orders at this time.

PICKUP ORDERS take about two days to fulfill.

SHIPPING ORDERS take about 5-7 days to ship out after they are received. 

Thank you for supporting small business! We appreciate you. Reach out to us via email at info@oaktownspiceshop.com with any questions you may have. 

Take care and stay safe.
