    Where can I buy herbs?

    I use a lot of dried herbs in cooking (basil, oregano, rosemary ...) and find the tiny jars sold in the supermarket here unsatisfactory and a little overpriced. What I am wondering is does anyone know where can I buy stuff like this by the bag?

    Just to clarify, I want to buy herbs for cooking. This is not a request for information on the other herb variety sold by the bag.

    Thanks in advance (as they say).

    Er, at the wet market? Certainly for the more common herbs. Great also has the growing version (in a pot - if you are better at it than me you can have a sustainable supply).

    Neither,

    Have you tried Gateway in Sheung Wan? They used to have big bottles of oregano, italian seasoning, and pepper. Don't remember seeing basil or rosemary. There's also a store on Wellington Street at the corner of Aberdeen Street called Hello Shop and they have big bags of Oregano for $12.

    Thanks. I will check it out. By the way, what is a wet market? Is it a gaai si?

    They don't sell western dried herbs at the wet market.
