Spice Up Your Life

Spices, nuts, seeds, and beans are often sold in bulk or in separate shops or dedicated areas of larger stores.  An employee will package up your order.  These grocery items are much cheaper here in Saudi Arabia than in the states.

In the US, I've seen nuts sold where you can have the amount you want weighed and bagged, but never spices.

Hi Jerry - The shops and souks that sell spices are really fantastic here - the colors, the scents... Some shops have huge bags or boxes of the bulk spices. I love seeing it.
