Salvation for food lovers is at hand in Ziba and Hamid Asl's shop, which sells everything from dried morels and quince paste to nibbed pistachios and fresh yeast.
You can buy authentic Indian meals, ready to boil in the bag (excellent for camping trips), falafel mix, breadcrumbs and pavlova bases, plus seventeen varieties of coffee.
His shop typifies global Birmingham and the ingredients he imports complement the fresh food sold in the market.
Nima, incidentally, is just two doors away from K2, one of the best balti houses in the city, and good West Indian patties and jerk chicken can be bought in Mojam, next door.
