Bulk Salt(s) in Raleigh/Durham Area

I'm looking to grab rock salt in bulk in order to bake fish in a cake of it. Does anyone know where I can possibly find this?

  1. If you can't locate bulk rock salt you can use any plain coarse grain salt for this method. Whole Foods and Earth Fare both have carried sea salt in bulk iirc. I have purchased rock salt in bulk at EF in Asheville but I have not looked for it at the Brier Creek location.

    If you have a Costco, Sams, etc. membership they sometimes have large boxes of kosher or sea salts.

    1. Yeah I guess Kosher would work. I'm in need of getting more anyways so I'll check with our next trip to Costco.

      1. I've seen salt in bulk at King's Red & White in Durham. I'd call first just to make sure.

        1. I've seen it in WalMart - since they sell the ice cream makers to go with it.

          1. The Indian markets have bulk bags of sea salt for very good prices. I recently bought some at Around the World Market in Raleigh.
