I need a source for things like flour, rice, beans, oats, etc.

I live in Northern Virginia.

Buying in bulk from a place like Whole Foods or the grocery store is a joke, really.  They have these cute little bins that are pretty much for display only, maybe hold 5 pounds of each thing, and there is no cost savings.

I need more like 10-25 pounds of everything!

 

I got all excited looking around on the Azure Standard website, only to find out they don't deliver to VA. :(

I know UNFI does, but their prices are pretty high honestly.  About the same if I bought in smaller packages from the store.

 

So, where do you buy in bulk from?

Look up Yoder's Country Market in Madison County. joy.gif


I don't come here anymore. MDC has become overgrown with ads & useless extra forums.

I order from Quail Cove Farms.  You place your order and they deliver to a "hostess" house.  You can look at the "Schedule" page for their coverage area and the FAQs for how to get started and how to find out if they have a drop off location in your area already.

Thanks!  It's funny you mention Quail Cove Farms.  I just heard about them from a local friend too!  They have everything I was looking for, and there is a drop off point a few minutes from my house! yeah!
