Fine Foods on Long Lane sells packets of saffron. You need to ask for it, though. It's 4.95, which seems a bit steep if you can buy it for 2.15 around the corner at Fine Life.

Veggie Perrins sells saffron in Canterbury market Fridays at 3.99 for 5g. Our tesco sells Spanish Saffron on and of for 2.99 for 10g. I think the Schwartz is I think 1g.

I buy Chervil in large bunches in Calais Thursday market, but don't go specially as they don't always do it. You can sometimes get growing pots in French supermarkets. You could always det some seeds and a pot and grow some on your window cill.

In case it might still be relevant, I've recently bought fresh chervil at Greensmiths on Lower Marsh

My daughter bought a little plastic box of saffron in Tesco. About the size of a matchbox and it cost her, she thinks, about 3-50. But that was a couple of years ago. They may still stock it.

Brindisa do a high quality saffron - this is in the borough market shop.
Around a fiver for a small amount though.

Further to my earlier post, I saw some 'Finest Spanish' dried saffron on sale in our big Tesco yesterday.
3-99 for 2 grams.
