Best place for bulk nuts and grains in DC

An odd question, but we find ourselves with a menu full of almonds, pistachios, and walnuts. We often go to Yes! markets and have found decent deals on almonds at Costco, but what do you think? Where in DC can I find the best deals on bulk nuts (and grains)?

Thanks!

    Is GLUT an acronym for something, or is there actually a place named "GLUT"?

      Thanks to all- I went to GLUT and feel like we got decent deals. Plus after seeing the place and learning a bit more about them, it's the kind of place I like to spend my $ (like TPSS Co-op as well).

        If you are close to GLUT, you are probably close to TPSS Co-Op, in Takoma Park, on Carroll Ave. Like GLUT they have all the bulk stuff.

          Are you close to GLUT?

            Funny you should say that, we just moved reasonably close to the GLUT. We'll check it out tomorow. Thanks.

            I usually get my nuts at Trader Joe's, but I'm not a Costco member, so I don't know if the deals are better there or not.
