Good source for BRM in PDX

Hey all.  I think I just found a good source for bob's Red Mill flour for those in the PDX, OR area.  I was just recently at my favorite produce place, Growers outlet (corner of NE 162nd and Glisan) and found out that they sell BRM flour.  No I'm not affiliated with them, just sharing a find.  They purcahse the whole wheat and unbleached white in 50# sacks and then package them in roughly 5# bulk-style bags.  The great thing is the price ($0.65/# for WW and $0.69/unbleached white if I remember correctly.  Now I haven't done an incredible price crunching for the area, but this is the lowest I've seen, including being lower than the website for BRM.  I can't wait until I run low on some flour so I can go buy some good flour.  Happy baking.

Growers Outlet is pure awesome.  I love that place.  I've never picked up flour there though.  I'll have to give it a shot.

Did you guys know that you can go to the actual Mill in
Milwaukie? It is a great place and has bulk available for everything. I am not quite sure why you wouldn't just go there?

Yes, I did.


Bob's Red Mill is a fun place to visit, but I haven't found the prices to be that outstanding there and it is about half an hour out of my way (and that is on a good traffic day... it is likely to take twice as long to get past Clackamas the next 5 weeks or so).  I commute past Growers Outlet every day and they have some of the best produce in town. Its a no-brainer for me.
