I don't know about orris root but I like http://www.culinarydistrict.com/ for things like fennel pollen and porcini mushroom powder. This is the on-line identity of Surfas down in LA (Culver City actually)---combination "gourmet" and restaurant supply.

I also found World Spice to be very good. And their customer service was very helpful when I needed it.

I think the Arora Creations line is pretty amazing for their organic Indian spices. www.aroracreations.com

I'm pretty sure they do bulk too.

myspicesage.com With a minimum order, there's always a bonus something-or-other - I usually wait until the bonus is vanilla beans!

Kalustyan's. I buy a lot of my spices from their NYC store, but they also have them online http://kalustyans.com/default.asp. Just checked and they have orris root.

Wow, I'm so glad to know about this. Their spice selection is not extensive, but I like that they sell broken Saigon tea, and you're right -- overall, their prices for teas and spices seem quite reasonable. Thanks for posting the link! ;o)

Penzey's is a great resource for spices though a bit more mainstream. A few things to keep in mind when ordering anything online - sourcing practices, quality and food safety standards. Penzey's in national, known and recognized. Their product quality is excellent and their food safety standard is very high (3rd party audit, etc.). You don't think about food safety when you sprinkle cinnamon on your french toast, but you should. I have recommended Penzey's to industry friends and colleagues when their needs are large and small.

Orris Root?! What is that? I'm always looking for unique spices to try. I have been looking for a bulk source for black garlic and I stumbled on the SpiceJungle https://www.spicejungle.com - I think they're new. I'm not sure if this thread is still alive or not, but has anyone shopped there before?

As I remember, orris root acts as a preservative. Used it in a recipe for making pomanders (clove studded oranges).

Hi Myla! You asked this question quite some time ago. But, since I am familiar with the site you are wondering about I thought I would add an answer anyway. I recently placed an order at spicejungle.com for some dried chilis and mushrooms. The products arrived pretty quickly and were absolutely lovely. I also placed an order at their sister site beanilla.com and was equally impressed. I hope this helps!

I've been using Ebay lately. Not only can I find the more offbeat ones, I can also find my usual suspects in different "cuts" (sorry couldn't think of better terminology). For example, I was able to buy green cardamom seeds, not the whole pod, just the seeds. And soft cinnamon bark from Ceylon, not hard sticks but softer bark which I can crush with my bare hands. My stand-by is Penzey's but they often don't have the more exotic stuff.
