Where to buy inexpensive whole vanilla beans?

Pamela | Jun 17, 2008 01:07 PM

Whole vanilla beans are awfully expensive. Trader Joe's didn't have any when I looked today, and the regular grocery stores (Ralphs) sells a single vanilla bean for anywhere between $8.99 to $12.99!

Can any of you recommend me a place that sells somewhat affordable whole vanilla beans? I live in Southern California (Torrance, to be precise).
