Thank you for finding us, as we two-step our way into our new space, along the following timeline:

Labor Day, Monday, Sept 5 – last day both shops will be open at E280.

Tuesday, Sept 6 – vomFASS Oils, Vinegars & Spices will open in a temporary location on Level 2, North (N284), near Nordstrom’s. Our liqueurs, wines and spirits shop will be closed during this time.

My team and I have had a fabulous time introducing local foodies and Twin Cities visitors to the vomFASS concept and products in our two-and-a-half years here at Mall of America. It’s going to be even more fun to have the space to expand the education and fun we have teaching people how to use oils, vinegars and spices to create easy, delicious and healthy meals at home. And who doesn’t enjoy tasting and learning about appreciating fine spirits? I look forward to welcoming you to our new location, where we will continue to be your culinary tour guide as you “try before you buy” the world’s finest products sourced directly from family growers, artisan producers and craft distillers.
