Wholesale Wheat Flour

I am looking for a way to buy whole wheat flour cheaper than at Trader Joe's (5lb, $2.99). I don't mind buying in bulk, 20lbs, 30lb, etc., but can't find any store or online shops that sell whole wheat flour to a consumer at the better price than Trader Joe's. I checked Costco, too.

Can anyone give me a suggestion? I live near Redondo Beach, but am wiling to drive up to 20 miles to buy whole wheat flour for baking.

      1. Is this for a business? I've never been in one because I don't qualify, but there are Restaurant Depot warehouses scattered in Los Angeles County. I think they stock what you need, but they are membership only. Here's the link to find locations.
        You can find the membership requirements on the website. I have no idea how their prices relate to the stores you've shopped.

          Thank you for your post! I didn't check my Junk box and didn't realize I got a reply. Thanks again!

      2. Torn & Glasser in downtown LA has some flours.

        Allied Food Sales might sell to individuals

        Honeyville Online

        Azure Standard: Best prices, and a great service for all kinds of natural food products. Monthly delivery, you have to have a drop point nearby.

        Amazon has excellent prices on flours...if you join Amazon Prime shipping is free.

          Thanks for your post! I didn't know about Torn & Glasser, Allied Food Sales, and Azure Standards. I will contact them and find out what they offer. Thanks again for your time!!

        2. I've heard Costco offers good pricing on bulk flour.

          Azure Standarda and Amazon are good choices too.

          Have you priced bulk pricing at hippie places around town? They will usually sell larger bags.

            Thanks for your post. What does "hippie places" mean?? I am not a native English speaker, so I don't get it...
