In 1980, Barbara Zink founded The Herb Shop in picturesque Lititz, Pennsylvania. Almost 15 years later, Barb's husband, Jim, opened a stand at The Central Market in historic downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Barb retired in 2008 and closed the shop in Lititz, but the market stand remains. In 2014, Barb & Jim's granddaughter, Corrie Breen, decided to carry on their legacy. In 2022, long time employee and "Spice Girl" Angela Gundrum purchased the Herb Shop.
