Made on MVY: By the Sea Salt


Spice up your summer with By the Sea Salt’s addictive seasoning blends. Since first introduced at the West Tisbury Farmers Market in 1994, By the Sea Salt has been a staple at Island markets, hailed for its perfect balance of all-natural herbs and spices. Owner Pamela Belain describes her mission; “We’re just some kooky Island chicks trying to spice up your lives.”

The zesty spices are the perfect hostess gift or Island souvenir. Hand-blended on Martha’s Vineyard in small batches, By the Sea Salt is a great addition to your cooking and equally enjoyable passed at the table. Try the original By the Sea Salt, or Jose Can You Sea? Salt; both varieties can be used to enhance the flavor of beef, poultry, pork, fish, and vegetables. Use as a meat rub, or add zest to salads and sandwiches. Pamela’s favorite recipe is to add Jose Can You Sea? Salt to two ripe avocados and a squeeze of fresh lime for the perfect guacamole.

By the Sea Salt can be purchased at Morning Glory Farm, Cronig’s, LeRoux, Net Result, Rosewater, Shiretown Meats, Edgartown Seafood, Edgartown Meat and Fish, Larsen’s, Net Result, 7a, Alley’s, and more. Visit to place an order or learn about wholesale options and wedding favors.
