Tunisian Spices

Tunisian Spices Tunis Tunisia

While roaming the Medina in Tunis a couple of weeks ago I spotted many of these shops selling all sorts of spices just like this stacked up on the street. While I’ve not a clue what most of the bags contained, I have to admit I wish this was how I bought my spices instead of out of expensive little jars at the supermarket.

    Chris, this shot is brilliant. You can almost smell the spices just by looking at it 🙂

      Thanks Candice. There were so many shops like this all around the medina with various smells, some good and some not so good.

    I see those spice markets in every emerging country I go to and am always overwhelmed. While I rarely cook while traveling, there are so many to choose from that I have no idea what to buy!

    That looks like a typical African market, its the way all grains and items of that nature are displayed and sold.

    When I lived in Peru I loved buying spices like this. Well, everything was more or less sold like that in Cusco at the open markets. What a delight to buy food/spices at places like these. Lovely photo 🙂

    Beautiful photo. I love wandering through spice markets -the colors and the smells just makes me want to cook! I think my favorite ones were in Fes Morocco.
