Farro Perlato

Anyone know where I can find some Farro Peralto in the East Bay ? Looking to purchase in Bulk if possible.

  1. Some Costcos had three-pound bags of Di Amante organic farro perlato for $7.50 last year. I haven't looked for it recently.

      That's where I purchased my last batch. Unfortunately they don't have in stock now. I'll try Berkeley Bowl...

        They also have it at the Pasta Shop. Prices don't remember.

          I've gotten it at BB before. I think they had a better price than at Genovas.

            I think some places that formerly sold it in bulk might have stopped because it has a tendency to go rancid more quickly than most other grains.

              Farro back at Costco Richmond, 3lb about $7.

                Thanks ! On my way there tomorrow to pick some up in addition with other stuff.

          2. The last batch I bought at BBW, which I am using right now in a whole wheat honey bread, was in a bag, not bulk bin, and about 1 pound at $3.29. Labeled Emmer Wheat aka Farro

            1. Trader Joe's in Rockridge has 8.8oz bags of "10 minute" Farro. It cost somewhere between $1.50 and $2.
