looking to buy mustard seeds in bulk

beignet Dec 2, 2012 08:19 PM

I'm looking to buy 3-4 lbs. of brown mustard seeds. The little supermarket jars won't do the trick. Anybody have any suggestions on where in the L.A. area I could try? Thanks.....

    I was facing this same issue and was going to head to India Sweets & Spices in Duarte - but they only had black seeds. I ended up finding Frontier brand organic brown mustard seeds on Amazon - 3, 1 lb packages for $15!

      Canton Foods in downtown is a wholesaler for restaurants but open to public check there as well. I know they have the regular yellow seeds but no idea on brown.

        Indian markets are probably a good place to start. I like Samosa House, on Washington Blvd. in Culver City.

              Any Indian store will carry them in 8-16oz bags. I either get mine from India sweets and Spices or from Valley Produce in Reseda.
