    : Or - for a shop thay includes not only medicinal herbs but also other foods regarded as (or at least marketed as being) 'health-giving' - a Health Food Shop. (The two often go together: a shop starts as a medical herbalist and expands to become a Health Food Shop.)

    In the U.S., I think "Health Food Store", assuming it's not a straight-up pharmacy. Shop might also work. I might even just call it a "GNC", which are the only stores I can think of that might be what you mean.
