Savory Pic medium

For over five years, The Savory Spice Shop has been a fixture on E. Broad St., opened in 2010 by sisters Jackie Mittelhammer and Becky Solheim. Customers came to enjoy not only the freshly ground herbs and spices and the hand-blended seasonings, but the friendly service and culinary advice provided by the sisters and their staff.
