I need to buy these seeds for a salad recipe I want to make for Christmas, but I am not sure if grocery stores sell them. I just need a couple tablespoons of the seeds. I sure would appreciate any suggestions as to where to buy them!!

Does your local grocery store have a bakery? Stop by, explain your problem... that you only need a couple of tablespoons of each, and see if they'll either sell or give them to you - I promise any bakery will have both!

Otherwise, yes - they sell them with the spices, but they aren't cheap!

Good luck!

Does your grocery store have a bulk food section? If you cant find them let me know, Wegmans and its compo both sell them in the package nuts section. I can send you some :lol The bakery is another good suggestion.

If you just need a little look in the spice section.
Do you have an Eastern, Mediterranean or Indian store in your area? Trader Joe's maybe. Health food store.

Did you find them? What are you making?

Every market in our area always has them readily available.

Thank you all so much for the great suggestions..except for DonB! Hehehe!
I am going shopping tomorrow so I definitely will look in the spice section of our grocery store maybe even our bakery section! I am making a spinach salad that sounds so delicious that I found on allrecipes.com. It was rated in the top ten best of all their recipes! It calls for a homemade dressing that has sesame seeds and poppy seeds. For Christmas I am making homemade lasagna and I buy all my ingredients for it in an Italian store in Little Italy, Baltimore City. Along with their homemade garlic bread and the salad I should be set! Dessert is homemade canolis!! Anybody nearby that would like to come visit is welcome!! Dinner is served at 4 PM.
