Best place to buy cheap bulk staples? (e.g. dried beans)

afn33282 | Aug 6, 2014 03:54 PM

Hi.

I go through a lot of dried beans.

I'm basically price-shopping against my local Fine Fare.

I'd love to buy local-farm dried beans from Cayuga (NYC Greenmarkets), etc, but it's not in the budget.

My Haitian housemate, for example, goes to a little shop up on 181st and broadway. Buys the pintos I get for 1.39/lb for .89.

I'm expecting the best sources to be in "ethnic" neighborhoods.

Any advice?

thanks!!
