Jumbo Oats: direct from the source?

  • 2

I've relied on my Sainsburys Taste the Difference Jumbo Oats for years. But they have recently increased the price from .79/750g to 1.49/750g! I am outraged, but love the quality. My googling of world oat markets does not seem to suggest the scarcity and price fluctuation like the upcoming one for cotton. Does anybody know of any good mills/farmers/etc who I can order direct from? I don't need organic.

Thanks!

  1. Cannot help with direct from source but Tesco Finest Scottish Porridge Oats (750g) are on sale until the end of the month for £1.

    Personally my favourite brand is Flahavan's.

    1. Can't help with direct from source either, except to say that you could try Bumblebee in Kentish Town. They have sacks of oats and other grains and pulses. I like Flahavans as well and Waitrose stocks it. Also available in Irish shops around London.
