Altha’s Louisiana Cajun Seasoning & Spices finds a new home

Reginald Robinson’s ragin’ Cajun business has found a new home at the corner of East Meeker Street and Railroad Avenue North.

Robinson, who grew up on the taste of Southern food, opened Altha’s Louisiana Cajun Seasoning & Spices in Kent on 84th Avenue South last September. Business was good, he said, but the longtime Kent businessman wanted to find a bigger, more convenient location to accommodate his growing inventory.

The store can now be found at 201 E. Meeker St., and continues to bear the name of Robinson’s mother, a talented cook who raised 14 kids in New Orleans.

Robinson’s new store opens June 17.

Altha’s offers more than 1,000 different products, from salts, seasonings, powders, gumbo, bisque and jambalaya mixes, shrimp and crab boil, jalapeno mayonnaise and relishes, Cajun mustard, rubs, roux, hot sauces, gravy and seafood etouffé mixes and other bases. It carries pees, butter beans and other vegetables, as well as fish, chicken and meats.

All told, the specialty store carries more than 125 different seasonings, Robinson said.

Altha’s sells products made in and from New Orleans and other Southern state vendors.

“There’s nothing bulk. I want to get the real taste and the real flavor (of New Orleans-style food),” Robinson said.

Store hours are 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
