Bulk purchase ORDINARY whole grains in Massachusetts?

I need to stock up and purchase for human consumption, neither nutritionally void processed grains NOR premium priced organic grains, but ORDINARY whole grains and also beans, in bulk, meaning, of each, a single huge sack or, better still, snap lid plastic bucket, as this is to be just for my personal use in my own kitchen at home.

But no one can tell me where to turn!

I gather you don't mean out of the bins at Bread & Circus...?

You can get bulk quantities of ordinary stuff at Costco, BJ's or Sam's Club. That's maybe too much of the "nutritionally void processed grains", but I think I saw some whole wheat ot Costco the last time I was there... don't remember sacks of beans.

Otherwise, talk to your favorite grocer or restauranteur.

The grocers and restaurateurs have proven quite clueless! And I need the whole range of whole grains, varieties of brown rice, oats barley and whatever else.

You should know and understand that nutritionally void processed foods are responsible for obesity and other manifestations of malnutrition. Indeed, I am pursuing doctor's recommendation.

Take a look at this:

I don't know where it is located, but it doesn't matter, if they can ship the grains to you!

Thanks. Wow! Where did you find that? I was just on a long phone conversation on their toll free number, and it's a lot to digest.

One more suggestion if Phoenix's link doesn't work for you..... Try scouting out indian food stores. They have VERY good prices (in general) and have a lot of beans. Usually only the basmati rice though.

Turns out that the complication are the shipping costs

AaronAgassi- Unfortunately, in this world., "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch". If you want the products badly enough, and you can only get them by having them shipped, you need to pay the price.

Maybe if you order a large anough quantity, the dealer will give you a discount.
