Wall Therapy is a program that brings mural art to the public for enjoyment and inspiration. This year The South Wedge in the south part of Rochester and the El Camino Trail in the north part of Rochester will be the recipients of amazing mural wall art on several buildings. The project was initiated in 2011. Last year 16 wall murals were painted by local and internationally known street artists. This year 30 additional buildings will be boasting the work of these talented individuals.
Our exciting news is that our building, Stuart's Spices, is one of the recipients! Our north wall will be painted by Cern, an internationally known street artist, who resides in New York City. The whole South Wedge is getting involved. There will be a "kick-off" party beginning July 20. We will have chalk boards and chalk available at all the participating buildings so you can stop by to create your own artwork. We can all have fun with our imagination and become inspired by art.
This gives you another reason to stop by and see us at our new location at 754 Clinton Ave South, right near Gregory St. We have over 200 spices, seasonings and rubs at our Shop, more than 10 restaurants in a 4 block area and the opportunity to sit and watch an incredible artist at work. Yes - we will have chairs available!

We have definitely outgrown our space on Lyell Ave. We have been looking for a larger space for over 9 months, and finally found what we hope will be the perfect spot. It is 754 South Clinton Ave, in the South Wedge/Swillberg area. We know it is not in Gates, but we are hoping that all of our very loyal west-side customers will drive the extra 7 (ok, maybe 8) minutes to our new Shop. We are hoping to move just before Memorial Day weekend. (Click here for more info)
We will still be at the Rochester Public Market every Saturday. Everything else, besides our location, will stay the same - same great spices, same ginding and blending, and same great friendly and knowledgeable customer service.

Have you seen our Recipe Cards? Alright, not exactly recipes, but cards for our different seasoning blends, filled with "Tips and Ideas" on different ways to use that particular blend. They've been a huge hit! When you buy one of our seasonings, ask us if there is a Tip Card to go with it. Right now we have Tips & Ideas for Corn on the Cob (remember this one is great on chicken, roasted veggies & so much more!), Greek Herbs, Island Spice, Lemon & Herbs, Salad Seasoning, Apple Pie Spice, Pumpkin Pie Spice & Burger Blast. We selected these blends because they are so versatile and can be used in so many different dishes. We just want to make sure you get the most out of them!
This Saturday (July 28) we have 2 new seasonings to share with you all.
Bloody Mary Mix
- We've come up with a Bloody Mary Mix made of all dry ingredients - the dill, celery seed, Worcestershire, horseradish and everything else is in the dry mix. Just add vodka and tomato juice! (It's vegan - if you're wondering why, check out the page or ask us!)
- Looking for the best steak rub? Look no further! Large granules of spices for bold flavor bursts along with more finely ground spices for a consistent full flavor in every bite. We know Road Kill is #1 - but this one may just become your second #1 !
