ISO: bulk food in LA

jenn | Mar 10, 200604:34 PM

So I wandered up to Whole Foods in Westwood today to pick up some supplies for granola making. Granted I hadn't been up for a couple of months but things at work had been hectic.

To my great dismay, the bulk foods section was GONE [and as an aside, was I the last person to discover this? Look what happens when you spend your life in the Hollywood farmer's market & TJs]. In its place was a lot of pre-packed stuff and various power bars. At first I thought maybe they moved it so I wandered 'round the store to see where it might have gone. Finally I asked and was told that it had been removed not only from this store but just in general maybe because of losing money from people grazing.

I have sent an email to Whole Foods asking why they didn't just remove the grazables and leave the rice, flax seed and rolled oats [none of which I imagine were being grazed upon] but now I am stuck without a good source for all those bulk things.

Aside from Erewhon, any thoughts on good places to buy grainish items in bulk? We are in the Koreatown area and would prefer NOT to be driving all over.
