Source for dried puy lentils in Vancouver?

Do y'all have a favourite supplier? Anywhere that sells them for less, apart from Costco? :-)

  1. Not terrifically original, but I usually get them at the bulk place on Granville Island.

    1. I pick it up at South China Seas or at Gourmet Warehouse. You can try the Canadian puy lentils which cost less than the imported kind. The bag I currently have is Cote D'Azure packed for Great Culinary Adventures, Inc. I don't recall the price, but it was pretty reasonable.

      1. I get them at Gourmet Warehouse. No idea how their price compares to others but it's reasonable.

        I'm sure Galloway's has them at a reasonable price too.

          Thanks all! The MIL gave me a giganto bag from Goats on the Roof and I'm finally finishing them up.

        2. Famous Foods used to have them and their prices are generally good, but I haven't been there in a while (still working through the huge stash of dried beans and lentils that we bought...)

          1. Did some research on Broadway this morning: the "Dan-D pack store" on Broadway and Stephens has them, both bulk conventional ($0.48/100 gr) and packaged organic French (0.68/100 gr.).

              Good to know, thanks!
              That's even less than Galloway's (5.99/500 g for the organic french)

                That's a great rec for me as that is on my way to work! I am beset by laziness and should google this but I seem to recall reading that real Puy lentils are harder to come by.
