My interest in spices and herbs dates back some 30 years ago when I started my first store. I was only selling the basics back then but my collection kept on growing after I discovered one spice after the other. Cooking has always been my passion, so this became an adventure for me. Using the right spice makes any dish flavorful and brings in much compliment to any cook.

El Mercado Latino is our brick and mortar store located in Pike Place Market. We have been in the same spot for two decades now. After having multiple inquiries and requests to carry our products online, we created this website.

For all aficionados of Latin foods and Latin cooking, we hope to serve you soon!
