Well dang, this is best curated shop in all of Portland! SO many great seaweed and other amazing locally made products. I was visiting before the holidays and able to scoop up some wonderful gifts. I will be back for sure.

The store is a lovely blend of practical and fun: varieties of seaweed, food with seaweed like salsas, books on seaweed from stories to cookbooks, jewelry, and beauty products for men and women.  

Yelp review

A cool, well-appointed shop within walking distance of the Old Port / Ocean Gateway / ferry terminal. I will definitely recommend this spot to friends visiting “from away.”

Beautiful little cozy shop with a friendly proprietor and scads of healthy stuff made from seaweed. Nice skin care products too.

Interesting variety of macroalgae-based products, from lotions and soaps to food additives and teas, plus a great selection of souvenirs such as shirts, hats, and glassware. Really interesting spot and a great place to pick up unique items.
