Spices and Herbs in Calgary?

Dr. J | Sep 5, 2006 01:32 AM

Local Calgarians, please, I am looking for a place in Calgary that sells bulk spices and herbs.

I have been to Superstore, Safeway and Co-op and was not very impressed (I always wonder how long they have been sitting in those bins at Superstore and Safeway and Co-op has NO bulk herbs/spices). Sometimes you only need a little of something, you know?

I'm looking for spice rack essentials (ie peppercorns, cumin seeds) however, like to have exotic options to try. I used to be in Winnipeg which had Scoop and Weigh which sold essentially every spice and herb on earth (or so it seemed)and had quick turnover so you knew your spices were fairly fresh. Save on Foods in Edmonton has recently expanded their bulk spices however, obviously not available here in Calgary. We're in the downtown; closer is better but would be willing to travel.

Thoughts/suggestions?

Thank you.
