In Toronto there is Bulk Barn where you can buy all sorts of grains, lentils, baking supplies, types of rice, spices, etc by the pound. They have these huge barrels filled with stuff and you just scoop out how much you want and pay by the kilo or pound.
Is there such a thing here in NYC? I'm especially interested in spices, lentils (yellow mung beans), and grains (whole wheat, etc)?
Please do advise!
