Buckwheat Flour in Edmonton

I have been looking for buckwheat flour and have had limited success. Did the Safeway, S-O, Sobey's on Jasper. I found some at planet organic but although it's in 1KG pkg I have a problem with paying the equivalent of $43 for a 10lb sac of flour. It cost me about $10/kg.
Anybody help?

  1. i may have gotten some at the italian centre - south side. it might have been buckwheat - not the flour, but it is worth checking.
    maybe sunterra - i have no idea, but it seems like it could fit.
    otherwise, PO is the most likely option. i find all of their flour extraordinarily expensive, but very nice, and finely milled.

      I saw buckwheat flour at the Italian Centre south today...for some reason it was in the rice aisle. Didn't look at price.

    2. I know there is a mill in Vulcan that mills buckwheat. Here is their site, maybe call and see who carries their flour in Edmonton.

      1. did you have any luck? I was searching for some Light buckwheat flour preferably fiber free kind. please tell me if you know. Yeah the planet organic is pretty expensive.
        I checked Wal-mart, superstore, safeway, sobeys but non had it. Luck97 has buckwheat flour but its very dark with chunks of husks. But if thats what you're looking for then try that place. My best is there should be buckwheat flour in a Japanese specialty cooking store if that even exists in Edmonton.

        I found some on the internet . but sadly only ships to USA this other one I found which is acadian light buck wheat flour really expensive.

        1. I've seen buckwheat groats in the bulk section of our Spruce Grove Superstore. I'm wondering, if you're really stuck and/or adventurous, if you could grind that stuff down to a flour consistency in a food processor or blender and then sift it?

          1. While at Superstore yesterday, I cut down the baking aisle and noticed they had the best selection of flours I have ever seen. However, I did not stop to check for buckwheat. But it might be worth a trip -- not on the weekend though.
