McCormick’s one and only retail store opened today in the Light Street Pavilion at the Inner Harbor.  When I first heard of the concept I was skeptical. “How much nutmeg can they sell?” I thought.  But I was wrong.  The store is a pleasure as an attraction and a practical resource for those who love to cook.

Displays for assorted spices abound. There’s one section just for baking…

and another one just for grilling…

and still another for general cooking.

Of course, there’s a display for all things Old Bay, including T-shirts and hats…

and flip flops.

There are rubs and sauces…

and an entire wall of jellies and relishes and ethnic spices.

There is a full kitchen in the store (too many people crowded it to get a good picture), where cooks will give demonstrations.  There is an exclusive McCormick World of Flavors product line only available in the store.

Someone had the foresight to include interactive games so the kids won’t get bored while mom and dad shop.

McCormick World of Flavors is on the first floor of the Light Street Pavilion near Urban Outfitters and H&M. Fun fact: The store is just steps away from the site of the McCormick Plant and Headquarters that stood at 414 Light Street for nearly 70 years.

Store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 – 9 and Sunday 11 – 7.

  1. I live in Western PA now, and plan to visit the new McCormick World of Flavors store as soon as possible. I remember attending Junior High a few blocks west of the old McCormick factory at the harbor, and enjoying the smell of tea, vanilla, cinnamon and other spices.
    Please, McCormick, consider moving back home to the Inner Harbor. You are missed, and your old home is still waiting for you.
