Chocolate and other ingredient sources Vancouver, WA Portland area

Hi all! We are new to this forum, so I may find this info in one of the threads, but...


Does anyone have suggestions for wholesale suppliers for bakeries? We are going to get our flours directly from Bob's Red Mill, but need to find suppliers of baking chocolate, sugar, pastry items, etc.


Suggestions will be most appreciated!

I don't know about the quantity/scale you need and whether you need it delivered, but I just hit Cash & Carry and they have a lot of restaurant/bakery supplies.  I visited the Gresham one but it looks like there is one in Vancouver too.  Not adequate if you are baking 1,000 loaves a day, but if you needs are smaller scale it might cut it.


Good luck!

Has a wonderful manager who is willing to order what you want and in the amts you want it. If they can get it. Give,  I think his name is Tim, a call. Worth a trip or a phone call.

Thank you for the suggestions! I requested a price list from Provvista and plan to stop by cash and carry next week.
