Spices and Herbs


This Yemenese shopkeeper set up a special temporary booth in a large popular mall recently for the Eid celebration marking the Hajj, the religious pilgrimage that millions of Muslims make every to Makkah. This area of the mall was filled with all kinds of temporary booths selling their wares for the holiday. Bulk spices, seeds, nuts and herbs are sold at very affordable prices here in Saudi Arabia. I thought his display was quite attractive.

    Beautiful photo. Those spices look very appealing. I am thinking of the generic “mall aroma” around here–the weird blend of McDonald’s, ice cream cones, pizza, and perfume–and how those spices must have offered a delightfully different olfactory experience!

  3. Sweet or spicy! Quite an assortment! Great photo!

    Someone who loves to cook (or make herbal beauty products) can go crazy here!
    Wishing you a peaceful and love-filled new year.
