Gourmet salts in Seattle?

aftervirtue Mar 24, 2009 08:00 AM

Does anyone know where I can find quality fleur de sel (or are they quality by default?) or Maldon salts in the Seattle area? I really want to avoid ordering online due to the shipping charges. Thanks!

    I'd check out Market Spice or World Spice Market, both in the Pike Place Market. Wouldn't be surprised if places like Whole Foods or Metropolitan Market carry something of a similar nature.
