Hi, I am looking for bulk marjoram in the peninsula. Any ideas? I was thinking elephant pharm or whole foods in palo alto, but I am not sure. I went to the WF in Mountain View, but I did not see bulk spcies.

  1. Give Milk Pail a call to see if they carry it.

    1. Piazza's on Middlefield & Charleston in Palo Alto has bulk spices -- including marjoram. Whole Foods stores all used to have bulk spices, but I've noticed that most of their newer stores don't carry them; I've been to their Palo Alto store but I don't recall if they have them. If you're further north, I'm pretty sure the Whole Foods in San Mateo has bulk spices, and I'm guessing the Piazza's in San Mateo does too.

      There's also a health food store in Palo Alto on California St. (Sunshine? Sunfood? Somehound will know) that has bulk spices, but don't buy anything else there unless you have a trust fund.

      1. Lhasa Karnak in Berkeley will gladly ship it to you.
