As fall approaches, I am back in the bread baking mode... wondering if anyone knows where to find semolina flour locally, or suggest good mail-order.

Thanks.

    Harvest food coop in Central Square Cambridge has an excellent selection of flours in bulk including semolina.

      Polcari's in the North End definately has it. J Pace used to have it bulk, but would probably at least have packaged and I have seen it in supermarkets. Also natural foods stores with bulk supplies often have it -- Harvest, Wild Oats, and Whole Foods. They might even look it up for you (usually at the register they have a directory of the bulk goods, so can tell if its usually in the bins).

        I'll second Polcari's -- that's where I always get durum flour. They also have hard-to-find stuff like chestnut flour, etc. Incredibly nice staff there as well.

        Whole Foods.

          I tried the fresh pond whole foods and was amazed to find no semolina flour, either packaged or bulk. The place is so busy on weekends that I didn't ask for it (I'm sure they have some for the in-store bakery). I will try the harvest food coop this weekend.

          Thanks.

            I actually found semolina flour in the International Foods isle (by the italian foods) at Star Market in Porter Square.

              Try Sevan in Watertown.

                  I'm pretty sure I've seen it at The Bakers Outlet in Malden.
