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

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?

  1. 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...

    2. 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.

      2. 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.
