Where to buy saffron in Madrid

Nox | Jun 6, 200811:32 AM

Hi, all,

I'm going to be in Madrid for the first time later this month. Although I've already planned out my gastronomic agenda, I need some help when it comes to procuring gifts for back home. I'd like to to buy some saffron, probably a lot of it, since I have heard it is still less expensive to buy it there than in North America.

My question is where can I go to do this? I'm assuming a supermercado like in El Corte Ingles would carry this, but are there better places to go? Also, if any Madrilenos are reading this, how much would I expect to pay for varying grades of the spice right now?

Thank you very much!
