Had a fantastic farro salad while in the states, and now have the recipe in hand - the problem is that I can't seem to find any in Victoria. I did check our local Costco as others in another Chow thread had success at the mainland Costco (s), but no luck here. I appreciate any advice!

    Ottavio in Oak Bay would surely have it, though probably a bit pricey there.

      What about Lifestyles Market on Douglas? Market on Yates?

      I have got farro at Galloways on the mainland. Are there Galloways stores on the island?

        look for "emmer" wheat, another name for farro... you can get it at ingredients, on the corner of store and discovery street.

          you could try contacting Robert at Lilikoi to find out where he has Emmer/Farro for sale.
