Looking for Anson Mills products (or local flour in general) in Charlotte

nofaceplate Aug 10, 2010 08:29 AM

Doing a lot of local cooking for work and in need of locally grown/milled flours. Anson Mills seems to be the best bet for wheat, but I've yet to see their bread or pastry flours for sale in any of the high-end markets. Anyone got any tips? Or even better, another source or two for local flour?

    Well, their products aren't available in Charlotte (those grits I saw must have been a hopeful hallucination!).

    Funny that when I lived in NYC, I could get their grits/flours from several different stores. Which reminds me - next time I'm in possession of a couple hundred thousand bucks, to start construction on a locally-focused grocery store, since we have none. Sigh.

      Can't you order online straight from their website? I'm pretty sure I have ordered from there before.

        I can, but I'd much rather find a place in-town I can rely on for snobby flours.

        Try Home Healthy Market on South Blvd. formerly Home Economist. They have the whole line.

          Funny, I was there last week and saw only grits. I shall polish my spectacles and try again. Thanks!

            A word of caution, I may be wrong, perhaps a phone call can save you a trip.

              Bob's, but no Anson. My search continues. It would be lame if I had to order flour off the innernets but it's looking more and more likely...
