I’m still in the states and one area where there is a big discrepancy in product prices is in spices and herbs. In KSA one can purchase a huge amount for very little money. I’m shocked at the prices for these things in the US. I don’t know what most of the items in this photo actually are, but there are sunflower seeds, cloves, fresh ginger, and I believe the black round things on the upper left are dried lemons. Spice shops abound and most supermarkets offer bulk spices like this too. The vegetable markets have an amazing offering of fresh herbs, like dill, cilantro, and parsley, which are sold in large bunches for literally just pennies.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
