Greek and Turkish spices

I would like to buy some mastic and mahlep while I'm in Melbourne. Are there any Greek or Turkish food markets not too far out of the CBD? I'll be based in Lonsdale Street.

Suggest you try Sydney Rd Brunswick or Coburg. Try this link for a place in Brunswick http://www.basfoods.com.au/ 419 Victoria St Brunswick, easily reached by public transport.

Gurdygirl is right - Sydney Rd is the best for Turkish food stores. Get the Number 19 tram along Elizabth St. to Sydney Rd.

Many thanks to both of you - that sounds perfect and Basfoods looks exactly the kind of place I'm hoping to find.
