Forum rules
1) Please search before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one.

3) Please post separately for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator (right now, that's me, Dragonbones) asking for help. Happy posting!

Hi, I'm looking for this grain, whole, in bags of 100-500 g (not something in tea bags, as I'm using it as an ingredient to give additional flavor to whole grain breads). Has anyone seen it about?

Have you been over to Dihua Street? Quite a few stores have various kinds of odd grains in bulk.

If I get desperate, I'll try that, thanks. We're way over on the east side so I hope someone spots them at a chain store, Orange, etc.
