between 6th/7th Aves.
Long-time Village instituion that sells herbs, spices and essential oils with knowledgeable staff and a deep and wide selection. A bit still in the Sixties, the shop is an experience to visit just for its sense of hippie throw-back (you wouldn't be surprised to hear Laura Nyro playing in the background) and the lazy cats languishing on the counters. But don't let that put you off: their selection of spices, herbs, nuts and sweets is very good.
