Old Salt Merchants

Old Salt Merchants is a woman owned & operated provisions company born in the Victorian Seaport of Port Townsend, Washington, and currently anchored in Berkeley, California, near the Ports of San Francisco and Oakland.  


Our Mission

Much like the sailors of old that sailed the seven seas and ventured into lesser-known ports of call in search of the finest sugars, teas, spices, and other riches, Old Salt Merchants has an uncanny thirst for exploration and enduring love of adventure. We are a company motivated by our passion for food, whose mission is to develop and expand our customers' palates by providing an irresistibly unique selection of gourmet salts, organic sugars, healthy teas, and (soon) the most exquisite spice combinations you have ever tasted. Our cooking salts are a perfect compliment to your poultry seasoning, pork seasoning, steak seasoning, and BBQ rubs. 


Our Suppliers

Old Salt Merchants shares much of the same DNA of sailors of the past who had to be in-tune with their environments, reading both the heavens and the seas, keenly observing the stars, and always looking out for weather patterns and landmarks to navigate the world so as to forge new partnerships and opportunities. We genuinely care about our planet and all of its inhabitants. We strive to responsibly source our products from organic and Fair Trade® suppliers whenever possible to better support our planet. While we work hard to maintain and expand upon our relationships with our current supply partners, we are also on the lookout for new suppliers to help us discover and craft unique flavors so we can sail these new treasures back home and share with all of you, our customers.


Our Promise

If you are a foodie looking to experience something new, we invite you to try our handmade, internationally curated collection of high-quality salts, sugars, teas, and spices many of which are exclusive to our store. With our bold and innovative flavors, our gourmet products will help elevate your dishes and impress your friends and family. Welcome aboard! We look forward to sailing with you as we explore the flavors of the world.
