Spices in bulk [moved from Tristate board]

hey i'm new here. i'm an art student in bmore and i've been working with foodstuffs. i'm looking for a place that has the largest variety of spices. i'd prefer a place that sells in bulk or that will allow me to buy by the pound rather than the tiny jars.

does anyone know of a place in the area?

    1. the best resource I can think of is Penzeys Spices. They have a stall at the Grand Central Terminal Market in NYC, but they are primarily a mail order company. They are the best I have seen for bulk spices.

      1. Penzy spices... they are a catalog company with a few outfits... don't know if they have one in Baltimore? but can order and their spices are great!

        1. There is a Penzey's in Rockville and one opening soon in Falls Church. Ethnic grocers would be a good bet for buying in bulk.

          1. Another good mail order source is The Spice House (, based in Chicago and Milwaukee.
