Where do you get your herbs/spices?

Like the title says, where do you guys buy your herbs/spices in Vancouver?

I'm looking for thyme and bay leaves.

No, seriously.
A thyme plant is about $4.00, the equivalent of like 1.5x of those plastic packs.

My bay plant was a bit more at around $20?

They last through the winter and grow faster than I can use them.
Small investment and you've got those herbs, fresh, for life.

for spices, either fruiticana (indian store with a billion spices), or famous foods (spices, dried herbs).
fresh stuff, any grocery store or produce market such as langley farm market or kins.

Thanked for making me lol

But like unit said.. indian places will have almost every spice imaginable.
I found that Safeway and Famous Foods have relatively big markups. Superstore is still decent.

And when you're shopping for spices at Superstore, walk over to the Indian isle.
Bigger bags for cheaper.
