Where to buy Quinoa in Vancouver?

We have just moved to Vancouver from Toronto where we bought Quinoa in bulk food stores, and so far in Vancouver we have struggled to buy it at a reasonable price. Does anyone know a place where it can be purchased at a reasonable price. It appeared to be half the price in Toronto than it is here in Vancouver. We are addicted to this grain. Thanks.

          El Sureno.

          Donald's Market (Commercial Dr and also at Hastings and Nanaimo) carries Dan-D-Pak Quinoa.

            Hmm, reasonable price eh? Well, I know Capers has it for sure, but that probably won't be a reasonable price. I would say try the Dan-D-Market (there's one on Broadway @ Stephens) or Famous Foods (Kingsway @ King Edward). They should both have decent bulk quinoa.
