Seaweed with its exotic tastes and varied qualities is now cherished by people all over the world.  But many of us still wonder where to buy fresh edible seaweeds as retail outlets are very rare.   However now buying edible seaweed is not difficult, as there are outlets in and around your areas, and online stores too from where buying has become much easier.

In places where seaweed is a delicacy and a traditional prerequisite diet of the people, there are special outlets, oriental groceries and healthy food shops. For example in Ireland, Canada, western coastlands of Atlantic Ocean and Japan.  Here the people have been cherishing seaweeds for centuries as a part of their daily diet.

Abundant seaweed is growing across the coast lines of Britain.  Maximum varieties are flourishing along the Blue Flag beaches and are incomparable anywhere in Wales because of the conjunction of cold currents from the north with warm waters from the south.  We see dozens of varieties mushrooming before the tidal waves cover them under their gushing waters. And just high tide towards the beach, we can find much delicate, fine and thin film of seaweeds as if they are giving coverage to the rocks.

Buying edible seaweed for environmentalists and health conscious people has been made easy as they can have these supplies from any of the local stores. No doubt these are fresh but there is also a risk of a carbon footprint because of the energy used in shipment.

We at Dulse & Carrigeen Online are here to deliver you with the varieties of seaweed foods for you to cherish flavour of the same.  Even our advertising partners have a full stock of fresh seaweed available. You can contact us with your requirements by filling the form below.

For the people of Scotland too, buying edible seaweed has been made simpler as it is being harvested along miles of shoreline along the west coast of Scotland.  The whole process of harvesting of fresh seaweeds is done by hand and the same areas are clean enough to also be used for spas and bathing.

The next best source from where you can have your favourite weeds is of course from Chinese local grocery stores. They have abundant healthy foods stored for adding to the taste of locals as well as foreigners.  There are also some good local health shops and outlets having supplies of Nori sheets containing vitamin C and many local outlets to get supplies from Asian seaweed producers and European countries. These Asian nations are the coastal areas of Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, as well as Philippines as they are utilizing seaweed to the full for its commercial value. You can saviour many different varieties from these local Asian markets.
