Bread Making Supplies

I am looking for a local (Philly or Montgomery County) source for artisan bread-making supplies. I use the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, and AB in5 Healthy Breads as my recipe books. My local Giant has some of the King Arthur flours and some Bob's Red Mill grains, but I am looking for items I now purchase on line from King Arthur. Things like grain mixes to add to bread (7 grain, 12 grain), cracked wheat berries, honey wheat berry blend, & etc. Any ideas. I live near Willow Grove, so that's the optimum location.

  1. Patti have you checked either Trader Joes or Whole Foods, either in Jenkintown or North Wales. I am sure either would have the wheat berries not sure about some of the others.

    1. Whole Foods has some of those things in their bulk section.

      1. You might check Jonathan best - there is one in Chestnut Hill that might not be too bad of a trip. They have a huge selection of Bob's products and at least some King Arthur in the Reading Terminal Market store

        1. Whole Foods carries many of the items you mention. If Whole Food doesn't have a specific item, they might order a case and put what you don't want on a shelf. They did that for me for two Bob's items about two years ago.

          1. I go to Swann's Pantry for my bread baking supplies. they have a variety of flours, even different varieties of rye and whole wheat. It's all sold in a bulk form and is fresh. they have 2 stores, one in Exton and the other in Quakertown.
