I haven't tried the buckwheat flour yet since I haven't found where I put my gluten-free cookbook. I did find one Sprouts that has it and got one package. They are listed as the place that has the best gluten-free selection (of flours and such), though Whole Foods seems to have more. I did find out there are several bakeries close to me. Expensive, though. $10 for 4 cookies.

Thanks for the information about the Red Mill. That is what they have around here, mostly.

Have you tried buckwheat flour yet? I am celiac and had a very bad reaction to it.
Just thought I would mention that before you spend money ordering it in :)
Have you tried any bulk stores? We have bulk barn here that has a gluten free section that is divided off from the rest so there is no cross contamination? That way you can purchase only as much as you need or want to try :) Tapioca and Arrowroot flours are good too and usually a bit cheaper!
Good Luck!

Sounds like you'll have to resort to mail order. You can use either Amazon or Vitacost. I use Vitacost a lot and have been very pleased and they have an extensive inventory of flours and GF foods. If you place your order before 1pm ET, they'll get it out the same day. I live in the boonies and this is the only way I can get much of this stuff.

Just wondering where you all find gluten free flours and such. The stores here have some like the rice, flax, coconut, almond, garbanzo bean. A friend got me a cookbook that has a lot of recipes using buckwheat. I finally found one store that had 2 bags of it (1 lb each). I can't find it anywhere else. Most of the mixed flours I find have the garbanzo bean flour and I cannot eat that. I have tried Google to find places that carry Buckwheat here in Denver. There are 8 pages of vitamin stores that don't carry anything like flour of any kind, Turbo Tax, Netflix, Food Storage products, and out of state companies. Not one place that actually carries the Buckwheat in state. Only someplace in New Jersey and a company with stores in Utah, Arizona and California. I am getting frustrated on trying to find ingredients that I might use. The Coconut and nut flours are really beyond my budget unless I get almost everything else at the food pantry.
