(Dark) Buckwheat Flour

I want to try the recipe for Aunt Jemima buckwheat pancake mix passed on from Quaker (see the Aunt Jemima thread) but I don't know where to buy buckwheat flour, preferably in bulk so I can get a small quantity for the experiment. I figured that Whole Foods would have it in one of their many bins, but at least the Clarendon branch didn't carry it (though they did have Arrowhead Mills buckwheat pancake mix which I've tried before and it ain't Aunt Jemima)..

Any local sources? Preferably not a farmer's market, Eastern Market, and preferably on the Falls Church side of town. Would Kennedy's Natural Foods have it? And is "Dark" (as called for in the Quaker recipe) buckwheat flour a particular type? I figured all buckwheat flour woud be darker than white flour.
