large container of active dry yeast

i live on the upper east side... does anybody know where i can find more than the standard sized pack of 3 dry yeast? i've seen people with jars of it before, so you can use as much as you want, plus cheaper.
let me know if you know anyting ideally on the UES or anywhere in manhattan really.

thanks all!

  1. In 1906 George M. Cohen said New Rochelle was "only 45 minutes from Broadway". I assume it probably longer now but there is a Costco there. I've seen here in my local store perhaps they have it there.

    1. I don't know if all the Whole Foods carry it, but the one on Union Square had 1 lb bags of, I think it was SAF brand, rapid-rise yeast within the last 6 months. There's always mailorder - easier and probably cheaper than a long trek to the 'burbs even if you have to pay as much for shipping as you do for the yeast...
