I need Arabic spices in Orange!


I know where the asian and mexican markets are, but I need ras al hanout STAT so I need an arabic market somewhere in the OC, preferably somewhat near Costa Mesa :-) Can you help me find a good place for Arabic spices and other goodies? Thank you so much!

  1. In case you can't find anything closer there are three South of Irvine:

    Jordan Market (in Hon Center, Alicia Parkway, just West of the 5) Easiest to get to for you.

    Mission Ranch Market (Los Alisos, between Jeronimo and Trabuco) 23166 Los Alisos Blvd)

    Crown Valley Market (Center Dr., off Marguerite Pkwy, South of Crown Valley; across from Home Depot

    1. Give the Cost Plus World Market store across from South Coast Plaza a call - they may have it.

      1. In addition to the three Midlife cited, there are two in Irvine, Wholesome Choice at Culver/Michelson, and Super Irvine on Culver at the 5.
