Fresh, Refrigerated Flour in the Bay Area?

I recently bought refrigerated bread flour from Surfas in Los Angeles (Culver City) and was impressed by how wonderful it made my bread: bouncy, chewy, airy, with way more gluten development than I get even with King Arthur. The flour itself is also very soft and silky, even silkier than White Lily.

I have some friends in the Bay Area who bake bread, and I want to tell them to find fresh flour; where can I send them? I know that Berkeley Bowl has whole wheat grains and a machine so you can grind your own flour in their store. Do they have processed wheat grains for bread flour? Where else in the Bay Area is there fresh, fridge only bread flour?
