Niblack Foods, which has been in Rochester since 1932 acquired the spice portion of its business by buying 'Tadco' in the late 1980s. It caters to the commercial baking and foodservice market, but their Henrietta warehouse/store is open to the public as well. No fees or minimum purchases are required.

They are located in the Genesee Valley Regional Market along with Lori's Natural Foods. In 2020, they moved from Building 6 to an updated building behind Palmer's Meat & Seafood Market.

Clay takes you over to Jefferson (near Home Depot) but there's a turn-off into the market. Tadco is awesome for spices, cake decorating stuff, nuts, honey, hot sauces, etc. Bet you can't walk out with at least one thing you didn't realize you could not live without. —DottieHoffmann

You can get effectively any spice you want at this store and most of them come in a smaller packet so that you don't have to spend too much on something you will use rarely. Their BBQ/hot sauces seem expensive ( there are a few here that you can get for cheaper at Wegmans ) but the variety is unparalleled. Come prepared to spend money on spices you never knew about but now need to buy immediately. This store is really a one of a kind gem in Rochester. —OneLove

2012-06-18 14:06:35   Went in at lunch time looking for a 6 lbs bag of ground Cayenne. They didn't have any bagged and they had no packers working yet the staff-on-hand went out their way to get one packed for me. Supper great customer service - much appreciated! —RochesterBass

2012-12-07 15:00:27   I dont know what is actually cheaper online, but here's a list of things that arent:

* candy making wafers - Merkens and Vanleer. Havent found them in store anywhere else, and amazon's more expensive, even with Prime.
* 1lb candy boxes - .44 cents each. Just try buying candy boxes anywhere else. If you beat that price (and it's even cheaper at 1doz) you'll have to tell me.
* almond flour - convenient, and the price is the same online.
* cake flour
* cake boards

other awesome things:

* sprinkles by color! Need just one color of nonpareil? Niblack's gotchu.
* powder food coloring
* edible glitter
* every weird flavor extract your heart can dream up
* cake boxes (Innovative Restauraunt Supply also has these, in more options, but these usually suit me fine)
* couverture (chocolate for candy making)
* gelatin sheets (the british love these vs powdered gelatin)

if you're looking at the grains/spices/sauces, yeah there might be cheaper things elsewhere but i dont know what i would do without niblack when it comes to baking!
