Looking For Quinoa in Edmonton

Bob Mac Nov 4, 2009 06:49 AM

Can anyone advise where they have seen quinoa for sale in Edmonton?

    I got it at Planet Organic in Calgary so I'd look for it in the Edmonton stores.

      Thank you.

      I drive past their downtown store on the way home so will drop in and check.

      The Costco's in Calgary had big bags of organic Quinoa so I'd assume they would have it too in Edmonton. Much cheaper than at the smaller stores.

          yes, they definitely have it at Planet Organic in their bulk section, it is pretty cheap, I believe it is organic. they have red & white. I like to buy both and cook them together. very pretty.

            Agreed definitely at Planet. I've also purchased it in bulk from Save-On on 34th ave, and red quinoa in box form at Sobey's.

        Even Wal Mart has it nowadays. I might have seen it at Superstore but it might have just been cous cous that I saw.

              did you get in it the bulk section? I don't remember it being that pricey? perhaps it is my memory of it.

              Quinoa cooks up wonderfully in the rice cooker (I don't even rinse it anymore). exact same ratio 2water:1grain

            You can definitely buy it in the bulk section at Superstore.
