Need to buy dried, will Greek oregano on the Peninsula (if possible)

JENNYBEEAY Dec 28, 2011 03:24 PM

Does anyone out there know of a good Greek market where I could buy dried wild Greek oregano? I've tried Draeger's and Penzey's Spices in Menlo Park and Sigona's already. Haven't tried Whole Foods yet. Any other suggestions?

Thanks for the help!

      Contact Krinos Foods for a local supplier.
      Don't know how wild it is

        There is a greek imports store on Mission St. in San Francisco around 20th St. (Sorry that I can't be more specific). If you are in the City it might be worth checking out.

            Produce market, 22nd and Irving, San Francisco, always has packets of wild Greek oregano.
            sometimes with the dry spices and sometimes at the register.

              It's a great resource for spices, and have reasonable prices.
