Best Online Spice Store

I want to buy bulk spices online and make my own containers of dried herbs and spices. Anyone have a good source?

      penzey's is my favorite along with bulkfoods on line

    2. WWW.PENDERYS.COM It is a small company and the products are really rfresh. I buy at the Penzy's store when I am near one for convenience sake but Penzy's is where I get my best dried herbs, speces and chilis.

        penzey's for me as well. very happy with the quality, service and price. been using them for years, not one single complaint. and happily, they have opened a store in philadelphia, which should be a hit!

        i don't know of any other spot to get spices online, but would be curious to hear if anyone has used anyone else and what their comments are.

          Sorry, I meant to say Penderry's is where I get my best etc.

            Agreed on Pendery's. And they're very hard to beat when it comes to powdered chiles.

          2. SFHERB.COM has probably the lowest prices for herbs, spices, and bulk teas. I did comparison pricing when I managed an herb and tea store and they had the best prices.

            1. Does this apply for salt as well?? We've been using a sea salt from Utah and are almost out. Would like to buy more but can't find it easily in the GWN

                If the salt that you are using is RealSalt from Redmond Trading Company in Heber City, Utah, then you can buy it online at

              2. I like Penzey's a lot, but I also use Zingerman's for some unusual items like fennel pollen, grains of paradise, and urfa and marash peppers from Turkey. I have also had good results with The Spice House.
