A friend of mine was telling me about how she got chia seeds in bulk at Bulk Barn. This definitely piqued my interest since I’ve been using chia seeds a lot more lately to make Strawberry Chia Jam. I have to admit that I hadn’t actually been inside Bulk Barn (crazy, I know!) because I assumed that there would be tons of candy and stuff that I wouldn’t be interested in. I am sorry I waited this long! There is a ton of candy, among other things, but I found some organic pasta, and an awesome gluten-free section! Including products in the bulk bins, as well as packaged products. So – gluten-free eaters, take note!
They frequently have $3.00 off $10.00 purchase coupons – so check their website!
Here are some snaps I took as I browsed the Strathcona store (on July 23, 2013) of gluten free and organic food at Bulk Barn:
