From Brook (HistoricFoodie):

Quote For saffron, do you know about Vanilla Saffron Imports, in San Francisco (www.saffron.com)?

They sell Iranian---which, I guess, we should call Persian---saffron (which is the best in the world) at affordable prices.  I mean, using them, I buy it by the ounce, rather than in those little vials and tubes.
 
More to the point, their stuff significantly exceeds the ISO standards. For instance, my last batch ranked 240 (vs 190 ISO Standard) for color; 85 (vs 70) for flavor); and 36.26 (vs minimum 20) aroma.  

Check 'em out.

Tas,

Toledo, Castilla La Mancha  is a large producer, so I would check with La Tienda ..

Another very large producer is Navelli,  Abruzzo in Italy;  Abruzzo Foods.
