Hi, there are a number of specialist spice and herb shops in Puerto, as well as the market, and most supermarkets. You will find that the price varies, depending on quality.

There are also a number of spice stalls in the large market in Santa Cruz.

Hi Susie, when I was in Puerto in November, this street was undergoing major work, and many of the shops were closed, however when open there is a great choice, we buy mixed pepper corns here.

Not sure when you are in Puerto, but I would expect the street to be fully open again next month.

Hi Ricky ..

Yes we noticed that parts of the street had works in November ...Do you know what it was all about ? We didn't visit the herb shop this time as we had still got a good stock from our last visit ..

Saffron any where is never"very cheap" if you are being offered "cheap" saffron treat it the same way as you would if you were offered "cheap gold"

Hi Sylla .

We were told by Anne ( the wife of Gregg the owner of The Bee Hive ) that they were making Calla Hoya more pedestrian friendly . They were then going to flatten out all the steps from SanTelmo to the Pommadore restaurant , along the front .
