Spices for Curry

Does anyone know if it's possible to get curry paste and spices from the Spanish supermarkets?

Where abouts are you? Because there is a huge spice stall at the sunday market in Mazarron Port. Also a spice man, (English), usually at one of the indoor markets at Camposol and he has a great range. There are absolutely loads of spices from both these outlets. Good luck.

Thanks, I know how to get to Mazarron port so I'll have a look this Sunday. I don't however know how to get to Camposol. What day are the indoor markets there and could you give me directions from the port?

Camposol is Junction 15 on the RM3 and head for Sector B where the shops and bars are. The indoor markets are normally the last Friday of the month held in Kenellys or Alley Palais but you might want to ring them to see if they are on, and that the spice man would be there. You should be able to get their numbers through this site.

The spice stall at the port is usually along the same row as the fruit and veg.

Please could you tell me where the Sunday market at Peurto Mazzaron is held and what sort of items are on sale, then i can pay it a visit next time in Spain. Many thanks

Stop Press - Ok Missy, don't bother going to Camposol cos I have just found out that the English spice man has just moved to Granada. Go to the market at the port but take some translations with you though form what you want. The spice stall may be big but some of the names seem different in spanish.

To Jnrchrdsn - the market is down the road from the bus station or there is another way in. Best idea is to follow the crowds. It really isn't to hard to find if you look for people and carrier bags.

Thanks for all the info rowey93, you've been very helpful indeed.

I'll try an online translation for everything I need just to be sure.
