Eastsiders: Why Cross the Bridge for Bulk Spices?

Shop locally.

I received an email from a Bellevue reader asking if she needed to drive over to Seattle to buy the bulk spices I praised in my cinnamon taste-off last week. The answer is no.

According to the spice buyers at Madison Market and PCC, they buy from the same source, an Iowa-based co-op named Frontier Natural Products. And PCC has stores in Kirkland, Redmond, and Issaquah.

But if you haven't been to World Spices, in Pike Place Market, where I purchased Saigon cinnamon, you really should make a trip for the smells alone.
