Where to buy REAL (not instant) grits in Philadelphia?

Hi! I need to make grits for dinner this Saturday and I can't seem to find real grits. Does anyone know where to purchase them in the Center City/South Philly area? Please let me know. Thanks!

  1. I don't know how picky you are, but we just buy our grits at the superfresh.
    Pretty basic, dirt cheap, tasty. But i don't know from grits, it's possible purists/southerners would be horrified. They're not instant, though, that much I can say for sure.

    1. I would try Whole Foods. They have lots of different grains.

      1. Essene on 4th, just below bainbridge (Monroe?) has organic grits in their bulk food section.

        1. i've bought grits from the amish stand in the reading terminal market, but i'm no grits expert. their oats, though, i do make a ton of, and it's great.

            Just got back from Reading Terminal. Kauffman's carries grits (and a million other types of grains). Thanks everyone!
