I want to make some Christmas tree ornaments using small bunches of cinnamon sticks. Any thoughts where I can buy lots of them for a reasonable price? I'd prefer Marin, San Francisco, or the East Bay if possible. Thanks!
Berkeley Bowl as well.
I think the price at this place was about 4.99/pound in their bulk section last time I was there! Maybe a bit more..
Milan International990 University Ave(between 8th St & 9th St) Berkeley, CA 94710
Indus Foods on San Pablo Ave x University Ave in Berkeley has 5 oz packages of 5 1/2" long sticks for $1.99
Lhasa Karnak in Berkeley sells Batavian cinnamon sticks for $13 a pound and Ceylonese for twice that.
Specifically - Costco Business in Hayward has rather large jugs of cinnamon sticks for pretty cheap.
What kind of sticks do you want? The neat 'swizzle sticks'? Mexican groceries are likely to carry true (Ceylon) cinnamon, which is a thinner bark, while Vietnamese ones sell a chunky thick bark.
I don't know about the price, but Rainbow sells them in bulk. I find that you can ask a worker there and they will sell any bulk items in the quantities they get from their suppliers.
