Berkeley Bowl - grind your own flour

I found Berkeley Bowl heaven last week. It reminded me of Fairway in NYC. You can get everything at Berkeley Bowl - produce, meats, seafood, bakerey, herbs, cheese, and non food grocery products. One intriguing feature is the wheat grains you grind yourself. You choose either hard or soft wheat, then feed it into an electric grinder. Fresh whole wheat flour for $.40/pound!

    I have found this at Oliver's Market in Cotati, as well. Is this a trend?

      Don't know if it's a trend, but it certainly makes a lot of sense. Whole wheat flour deteriorates faster than white flour. Grinding your own ensures it's fresh.
