Flour sources in Upstate NY

Can anybody recommend places to buy good bread flours and grains in the Rochester, NY area? I am able to find most of the things that I need at Wegman's, but have been unable to find high-gluten flour or hard spring wheat flour. They never seem to have quinoa in stock either.

Hello, another rochester native (o:


I have found some obscure stuff at Tadco/Niblack.  It is in the genesee valley regional market on Jefferson Rd in Henrietta (across the parking lot from where Palmers meat counter used to be)  They have a good selection and I have been satisfied with what I have used.  They have a website, ingredientwarehouse.com and ship if anyone is looking for spices and such.

I like to shop at the Indian and Chinese grocery stores in Henrietta, so I'll check it out next time I'm there.

Try your favorite local bread bakery and ask them to buy a bag. I bought a 50lbs bag of ConAgra Producer High Gluten flour from Baker Street on Park Ave. But try any local bakery you like and see what they say.

I might try that.

Wegmans now sells boxes of Red Quinoa.  For the flour, you might want to contact Small World Bakery, as I think they grind their own flour, from local farmers.

Olindo's Cash and Carry, on Lyell ave just west of Mount Read Blvd carries several brands of high gluten flour. I believe they are all 50Lbs bags ( around $ 20.00 ), and that's too much for me to use before going stale. Nice Italian market. I get my pasta and olive oil there. They have some of everything including hardwre, meats, and veggies. I consider it a Rochester landmark, just as much as I do the Dimpflmeier bakery in Toronto.

I'm always looking for excuses to visit Italian markets. Thanks!

Just went there yesterday. All the flour (50Lbs bags) are $22. A 25Lbs bag of "Olindo" brand (high gluten) is $ 12. 5Lbs quantities are $3.
