Where do you buy your spices?

I get about 99% of my spices through Penzeys.com now. I was introduced to them by a fellow cooking/grilling friend. Everything tastes SO much fresher than grocery store spices.

I go through Penzys too. Since I have discovered them I have not looked back. Their spices are the best I have tasted around here. They also have very good prices as well.

We have a Penzey's store not too far from here. I stock up whenever I get out that way. They have great spices and they are reasonable - although I still spend a bundle when I go there.

I've never been there...would love to check it out.
We usually pick up the big jars of Tone's seasonings at Sam's, and I also grow a lot of my own.
When I was in the greenhouse business (22 years) I used to get a lot from Frontier Herbs. Now they have a retail site. You have to buy them in large quantities, but you can always split with a friend, or fill small jars and include them in the Christmas baskets you give to your friends.
They are very fresh and flavorful, and they have a large variety.
