Is there a (reasonably priced) or/and bulk nut store in Vancouver ..looking for RAW nuts..

Is Save On on Kingsway my best bet? :S

I am looking to go anywhere within the GVRD /Lower Mainland. Also, how do u store them so they don't go rancid or how long does it take before it goes rancid.. are they BEST to buy in smaller quantities? Right now, I spend about $20 a week on nuts...I don't know grams/kgs/pounds but I eat approx 3 (big) handfuls a day.. and I love cashews...I just bought $5 worth of cashews yesterday at price smart and it's almost all done..

  1. Dollar foods on Commercial has a decent selection, as does Superstore

    1. Famous Foods on Kingsway at King Edward has tons, RAW and ROASTED.

      1. I think there's a place on Lonsdale in North Van (Ayoub's?) that I've only ever passed by, and haven't tried. They seem to have a website, if it helps:

          It looks like they are opening another location on Denman St...

              Ayoub's in North Van roasts their own nuts. They know their stuff so it is a good place to get advice.

        2. I used to buy alot from "Weigh To Go Bulk Foods" on West 41st (near Dunbar, across from the IGA) before we moved. Not sure what their pricing is like these days.

          1. If you have a Costco membership, their almonds, pecans and walnuts are raw and reasonable. They do carry cashews and mixed nuts, but they are roasted and salted.
