Gourmet salts in Seattle?

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!

  1. 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.

      Met Market has a moderate selection, and they carry local brand of flavored sea salts as well as some french improted smancy stuff.

    2. Pasta & Co has a couple locations throughout Seattle and they carry of couple brands including Maldon

        Great, thanks for all the feedback! I'll definitely be checking Met Market and the Pasta & Co in UVillage.

      2. I've also seen some black and pink salts from hawaii at whole (paycheck) foods on Roosevelt.
