See this storefront covered in bars? Follow me inside and feast your eyes on Spiceman’s FM 1410, a wonderland of exotic produce, herbs, micro-greens, fungi, and yes, spices.
Proprietor Tom Spicer sells to all the hippest Dallas restaurants, and he’ll sell directly to you and me too.
Spiceman’s FM 1410 is located in East Dallas, next door to Urbano Cafe and behind Jimmy’s Food Store. His market is urban, his food seductive.
Depending upon what’s growing out back, his offerings may include Dragon tongue beans, Indian desert celery, fresh green coriander berries, fiddle heads, wild miners lettuce, black garlic and more.
And the ‘shrooms? A dime bag will change your dinner.
No matter what you buy, the Spiceman (as he’s known around town) will send you off with a few of his own favorite recipes. If you have time to spare (and you will), he’ll sit and gab. He’s a storyteller too.
One more thing—I highly suggest you LIKE his Facebook page. His posts are downright literary.
Stop in this weekend. His market is an East Dallas treasure.
