Finding bulk grains and nuts in Europe

I already posted a question about grain mills to use in Germany but I also need to know if I can find supplies over there.  I currently mill my own flour, including gluten free flours for my son.  Does anyone know of a good supplier near Spangdahlem AB for buying whole grains in bulk?  I don't know if I can afford to feed my family if I can't mill my own GF flours, they are just too expensive.  Would Amazon be my best option?  If anyone has experience with this or knows of someone who does, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you so much in advance.

I have certainly found more GF grain varieties in Austria than in the states when comparing regular supermarkets.  What you may not find is the variety of nuts and beans.  I would not worry so much about it.  Many stores in the area will cater to American tastes and you may find more than what you expected.  

What most people discover is that curtain rods are different and everything is metric.  Eggs can come 10 to a box, butter is generally unsalted and milk is sold by the liter.  Lawns are smaller and closets not always build in.  Have Fun!
