Where to buy cheap quinoa in the greater boston area?
I was wondering whether any of you had recommendations for buying cheap quinoa around the Bostn/Cambridge area or thereabouts. I found a 25 lb bag of Roland's prewashed on Amazon at about $2.40/lb a couple of months ago, but that seems to be the best I can find (and that deal doesn't seem to be available any longer either). Anything closer to $1 or $2/lb in the area or online?
(Please be gentle because this is my first post).
Welcome to chowhound. I recently read an article that Quinoa is getting expensive...
Have you tried the Harvest Food Coop in Central Square?
These guys have a location South of Boston and recently purchased Boston's biggest Wholesale flour distributor. I bet they have it.
Or these guys in Needham. You need a tax ID number to shop there. But it is REALLY easy to get one:
Quinoa is getting ridiculously expensive these days. I did, however, get a good price on bulk from Whole Foods a couple weeks ago. It does go on sale on occasion and is quite reasonable (I can't remember the exact price I paid- but it was way less than buying it prepackaged.)
