Puerto Penasco bulk foods store-WOW!

In Rocky Point (aka Puerto Penasco, Sonora, Mexico) there is a bulk foods store. When the store is open the roll-up doors expose rows and rows of bright blue, metal bins. The store sells natural products such as whole leaf teas and herbs. bin cinnamon sticks bin.JPG bin tea for cough bin.JPG They also sell dried beans, peas and lentils. beans and lentils bin.JPGOn top of the bins are vanilla extract and other flavorings for baking as well as sauces, honey, seasonings and cooking products. A few bins contain consommé or soup bases in bright colors. bin powdered soup bin.JPG

Some of the bins are rolled outside to be on display on the sidewalk in front of the store. These bins contain spices, teas and powdered dyes for baking. bin dyes spices and teas bin.JPGMost of the bins are inside the cool, tiled store, organized in long rows. bins in a row.JPG

The bins give off amazing smells; the colors are brilliant and the sounds of a busy street whiz by outside. This store is a treat for the senses.
