Persian saffron

Iran is a world's leader when it comes to saffron production (quantity and quality). This spice is extremely expensive in most countries. Do you know much is it in Iran? Can one buy saffron on the bazaar?

Hi

Yes you are right. Iran is a leading producer. There are major farms near Mashad , Shiraz and Yazd and perhaps other areas.

There are many different kinds but the normal one which most locals use is available in different Herb-shops and is rather cheap. It was about 7 $ for a mesghal (about 4 grams) last month.
