Oftentimes you can find saffron around $75 an ounce on eBay.  I have had good results with this thus far.  One other option is via Master Llew in the Middle.  He has a source.  The price on saffron has gone up terribly in the last three years.  I sell it at $5 a gram.  I have seen it as high as $14 a gram.  Best bet might be your local Indian grocery.  My local one had it at $85 a few weeks ago.

Does anyone on the list have a good source for it, either at Pennsic or online? A little googling suggests that about $5/g or $100/oz is the best online price one can reasonably hope for. The pepperer's guild used to have it, as I recall, for less than that--but that was a long long time ago.
