Wholesale Wheat Flour

mimi8695 Dec 27, 2012 11:53 AM

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.

    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. http://www.restaurantdepot.com/locations
    You can find the membership requirements on the website. I have no idea how their prices relate to the stores you've shopped.

      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.

        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...
