DTW: Spices?

I forgot about that place! I went there once about a year ago and it was crazy. Huge, dark, and all kinds of strange stuff. Great idea.

Dearborn...duh! Why did I not think of that? Don't they call Dearborn the area with the most Arabs outside of the Middle East? Next time I'm in that direction I'll definitely try some mid-eastern groceries out that way, thanks.

Thanks, I plan on checking out Plum and Whole Foods bulk spices to compare.

DTW: Spices?

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll definitely use Penzey's in a pinch, however, I just priced their crushed red pepper out to be twice the price per pound of Golam. I'll also definitely check out People's next time I'm at Sparrow.

DTW: Spices?

I'm a chowhound n00b and a grocery n00b, so excuse my ignorance.

I'm learning the variation on price in spices depending on where you go, and was wondering the best priced places for spices in the area.

I liked the small "you scoop" bulk spice selection at Golam Produce at Packard and Platt in A2.
I was hoping for something like that with a bigger selection elsewhere? I'd prefer something in the A2/Canton/Westland area, but I'll venture out farther if its worth it. It's just difficult to scour every ethnic grocery store for the best deal with gas at these prices.

DTW: Whole milk mozzarella?

It seems like Holiday Market would (have you SEEN their cheese selection?!) you could also try calling Cantoro Italian Market in Livonia. I understand not wanting to go to a2, I bit it yesterday and went out to Sparrow, Zizi's, and By The Pound. Took me 3.5 hours - and I live in Canton!
