I'm looking for a place to buy dried beans for a veggie chili to serve at a special event. Can anyone recommend a place that could fill some or all of these criteria? 1. Interesting varieties like anasazi or adzuki beans 2. Sold in bulk, rather than pre-bagged 3. Organic? Thanks for any suggestions, I'm in North Park, but willing to drive a bit. I was thinking Ocean Beach Co-op might fit the bill. Could anyone confirm that? Thanks again.
Depending on the timing of your event, this may not be that helpful, but I order dried beans from specialty purveyor Rancho Gordo out of Napa. They carry the widest variety of heirloom and heritage beans that I have seen and I have had nothing but very positive experiences with them.
We've bought some truly great beans from a Bean Lady at Hillcrest Farmers' Mkt. She has interesting varieties, they may be organic, and she may be able to supply your bulk wish. Sorry, I don't remember her name, but if she's there, she's hidden in the middle aisle across from the crepe trucks.
