Nine great shops in Portland, Maine
Sarah Richards quit teaching Spanish to open her store at the foot of Munjoy Hill in the East End. She grows and dries herbs and flowers at her family farm in New Sharon and around her house in Portland. From her workshop behind the counter she concocts custom herbal blends to both balance the body and target particular ailments.
