Grains, Beans, Spices and More
In the good old days, the only way to buy dry goods was in bulk. That tradition continues with our wide selection of herbs, spices, teas, grains, granola, flour, honey, dried fruits and nuts, trail mixes and more. So, whether you need a little or a lot, check out the bulk section. It's a great way to get exactly the amount you need without the extra packaging.
Bluebird Grain Farms
Our commitment to sourcing foods from local and regional suppliers extends to all corners of our store, including what we carry in our bulk aisle. Bluebird Grain Farms in Winthrop, Washington, is a great example. Brooke and Sam Lucy met within sight of where their biodynamic family farm now grows organic heirloom grains, including emmer farro, an early ancestor of wheat and their most popular product. The folks at Bluebird are just as dedicated to delivering the freshest, most nutritious grain possible as they are to caring for the soil where it’s grown. They use natural, time-tested farming methods and maintain an uncompromising commitment to quality. We’re proud to support notable locals like Bluebird Grain Farms and to offer homegrown choices in every bulk.
Over a decade ago, two friends — Lori Basson & Sarah Hanna — tried making soap. After much hard work, experimentation, and a large inventory of soap curing in their basement, Camamu was born. All of their soaps are still lovingly handmade, in keeping with their commitment to artisan production methods. Always all-natural, Camamu soaps are formulated to provide superlative care to the skin.
Alaffia makes some of the finest shea butter products in the world.
They’re also making a big difference for the women of Togo, West Africa, who face staggering rates of unemployment. “In Togo, women’s skills were not deemed worthy of the workplace,” says Alaffia’s Togo-born founder, Olowo-n'djo Tchala. “We wanted to create gender empowerment by using women’s traditional knowledge.”
That traditional knowledge—the pounding, heating, and blending of the shea nut to make shea butter—just happens to create a superior product. Unlike stark white “refined” shea butter, Alaffia’s rich golden shea reaches us in its natural state—with all of its natural antioxidants intact.
