Where to buy Quinoa in Vancouver?

  • s
  • 7

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.

  1. 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.

          El Sureno.

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

        2. Choices on West 16 at Trafalgar has it in bulk

          1. Dollar foods across the street from Donald's on Commercial Drive

            East End Food Co-op at the North end of Commercial Drive

            Wholesale from Discovery Organics - Broadway and Kaslo - call to order
