Looking for Rye and Whole Wheat Flour

Hello, fellow bread enthusiasts.

 

I recently moved to Glendale, AZ.  Our family likes dark breads of all kinds...including multi-grain, rye and whole wheat. I have had no luck in finding Rye Flour at our local grocers.  The Whole Wheat flour is available, but in small 5 lb bags and is very expensive.  

Any suggestions where I could buy 25 or 50 lb bags of these fours in the Phoenix/ Glendale area?

 As you can see from my photo, I like baking specialty breads, like the traditional Russian Easter breads.  However now I am looking to bake some basic, spongy dark country breads with texture and a good crust.

Looking forward to your suggestions

Elena

If there's a local artisanl bakery near you, perhaps you could ask them if they'd sell the flour they use directly to you.  It's worth a phone call or two.

Thank you, Brian, very kind of you to answer. It is worth a try. I would never have thought of it.
