help needed: sumac and za'atar in Zurich

not sure if this is the right part of the forum but help please: where do I find sumac and za'atar to buy in Zurich?

The supermarket doesn't have it, the otherwise well supplied Turkish food store doesn't have it...


I live in Alt Wiedlikon, by the way.

Thanks in advance.

Re: help needed: sumac and za'atar in Zurich

You can find Zaatar and Ras al Hanout in COOP in the spice section, they have specialist spices now with the gourmet packaging. Sumac you should find in a Turkish shop, try Barkat in Wiedikon, if not there is a spice stall at the Christkindle Markt in HB, or Globus or Jelmoli it will be a little bit more expensive however.


I wish they would just stock these and All Spice as normal spices, and golden syrup and Muscavado sugar. Cooking trends in Switzerland happen later then the rest of the world and if you need specialist ingredients you really need to search.

You can get Za'atar at COOP in the spices "Fine Food" section. Here is a pic of what it looks like. Sorry it's blurry, didn't use a steady hand

Re: help needed: sumac and za'atar in Zurich

about the Coop, I looked the other day in the one at Sihl City and couldn't find it - but mind you my brain shuts down when I get in a supermarket so I was probably delirious...

thanks y'all.

Re: help needed: sumac and za'atar in Zurich

I did find sumac at Barkat, but I had to ask an employee of the shop, and then he dug a bit between the round plastic recipients with spices and found one with sumac. Then I looked and there were more, just hidden behind others.

The exact same product seems also available in a different shop (100 m from Barkat) called Seker Market https://www.google.ch/maps/@47.37137...hZqQ!2e0?hl=en

I got one, I still have to taste it
