You'll find Green Valley located in the Royal Randwick Shopping centre. People flock to Green Valley to get a huge variety of excellent quality spices at a much cheaper price than you'll find at grocery or health food stores. They've been operating for 30 years, so they really know their spices.
The smell will lure you in instantly and once you have entered the store, you will be tempted to buy everything. The spices look so vibrant and delicious; it's the perfect place to get inspiration for what to cook during the week.
Green Valley is actually much more than a spice shop; they also stock fresh nuts which are sold by weight, fragrant teas, beautiful Lebanese and Turkish sweets, cast iron tea pots and much more. You'll be pleasantly surprised at their huge variety of Chai blends. The Chilli Chai is a must try.
Because things are sold by weight, the savings are passed onto the customer. They also have a loyalty card which really comes in handy if you purchase large amounts of spices. The manager is very helpful and professional; he's happy to answer any questions you have about the spices and is very knowledgeable on the subject. Whilst you may be able to find spices from Asian supermarkets for slightly cheaper, the quality is usually not as good, and you may find that they contain fillers.
