Buying Spices

Has anyone found a really good place to buy spices on line. One that has good prices and a large inventory?

Penzy's is a good one,I have ordered from them. The Spice House is also good but I think a little more expensive. If you are looking to buy bulk quantity look at woodlandfoods.com.

Thank's for the info, I've used Penzy's they have a lot of spices, also I'm fortunite, there's a store about 15 minutes from my house [smilie=a_bravo.gif] lucky me!
I was just wondering maybe you found a better place since I've never really looked around.
Besides it doesn't hurt to ask. [smilie=a_whyme.gif]

I use Penderys for all my spices - I also use them as a co-packer. Besides being great folks, they have a huge warehouse of spices...just about anything a person could ask for...for bulk orders call - the online catalog prices are retail.

I just bought a 5# container of Head Country for a large benifit cook for our fire department. I cant make it for the price you pay for bulk rubs.

I buy a lot of Penzeys mail order as well as from other places. BUT, a penzey store will make you screaming nuts. The way they have stuff laid out is insane. If you are browsing, fine.....but go in with a shopping list and hang on to your sanity.....I went in the one in Phila, never again.

There is also a store in Des Moines.
