~*Nuts about Nuts in PHX*~

Hello all! I was hoping someone could direct me to the best spot in the Valley to purchase nuts. I am craving Jumbo cashews, Pistachios, almonds, you name it! So, whose go the goods at the best price?

      Wild Oats and Whole Foods might be good to explore as well.

    2. Have you tried the Sphinx Date ranch in Scottsdale?

      I usually buy my nuts in bulk @ Sprouts......
      Cashews are $3.99/lb this week!

      3039 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

      1. I always go with Sprouts over the other "natural" stores in town. Their bulk section is huge and always busy, which means higher turnover on their stock = fresher.

        And I'm consistently blown away by the price differences for the same darn thing at Sprouts vs. the others. I'm big into almonds. You can get them for about $3.69/lb at Sprouts. The only bulk almonds at Oats are organic, and they are $9+/lb! Ok, I'm not getting organic at Sprouts, but in addition to cheaper nuts I can find a great selection of lentils, beans, and other things.
