I know there's a place in town, but I cannot recall it. I believe they are on Cherokee. They have a phone number listed in the back of "The Bread Baker's Apprentice" by Peter Reinhart. I have it at home, I'll try and remember to look it up.
Edit: The book says Cahokia Flour (I think they have changed their name) and gives a number of (314) 781-1211. I called them a year ago or so and that number worked.
thanks for looking into that, it is now Bakemark
