Does anyone know where you can buy semolina flour in Charlotte?
I want to try my hand at making some pasta.

          The HT @ Stonecrest does have Hodgson Mills Pasta Flour. Its the perfect blend of semolina and durum flours. I've used it several times to make pasta and it produces alight, airy, egg pasta that's to die for. Here is a link to the product:

            Thanks Lynn. I will have to look again. I'm familiar with Hodgson Mills brand but I didn't see, maybe because I was looking for semolina my brain didn't register pasta flour as my eyes scanned. Very likely possibility.

              Also, the pasta flour is in a box, not a bag, fyi. :)

        How about Pasta and Provisions, Earth Fare or Fresh Market?

          Look in the natural foods sections of better grocery stores. I have often used Bob's Red Mill brand, it is merchandised in a clear bag.

          Earthfare should have it along with a larger Harris teeter, and Lowes Foods.

            Try Home Economist. They usually have a great selection of different flours in bulk.

              Thanks for all the suggestions.
              I looked at the Bob's Red Mill brand in HT Stonecrest but they don't have it. I will try Earth Fare as they do have a bigger selection. I will also try Home Economist. Not too sure Pasta & provisions has that kind of grocery items, I love the store but they pretty much just have the basics for italian foods (pasta, sauces, cookies, crackers and such). I will make that the last of my venture.
              I will let you'll know if I find it.

                Home Economist on South Blvd has it for sure. In the bulk bins located with other flour type stuff. I did not look to see if they had it bagged but for sure they have it in bulk. One assumes that all of thier locations would have it.
