ISO Anson Mills hominy grits in South Bay or Peninsula?

Would anyone know where I could obtain hominy grits (not polenta) made by Anson Mills on the Peninsula or South Bay?

The problem with ordering them online is that they require a minimum of 4 12-ounce bags per order, which is too much for my needs.

Thanks in advance!

    1. I'm not from your area, but have experience with them.

      Unless things have changed, they grind to order.

      I do not think you'll find them in brick and mortar outlets.

        We actually have had Anson Mills sightings at 2 local markets, Boulettes Larder and Rainbow, in recent years but not as far south as sairuh wants.

      2. Since I cannot easily obtain these grits close by, I'm trying to gather some friends together for a group mail order, as a workaround.

        1. How much do you need? If just a bag or so, I live in Charlotte but might be coming out to the Bay Area in a couple of weeks. I can poke around when I'm out shopping to see if places carry Anson Mills around here. I know almost everywhere carries fresh stone-ground hominy grits, but it's available in such abundance that I've stopped paying attention to the brand.

            Thanks for the offer, mikeh! However, today a friend of mine was able to share the costs and goods with me on a mail order.

              If you haven't yet, try the Anson Mills shrimp and grits recipe...

                1. re: sairuh

                  Yes, it is very yummy. Recipe I think makes 4 servings but DH and I ate the whole thing...

                  By the way, one thing I really love about Anson Mills grits is that when you open the bag, they smell like corn!
