I was trying to find GLUTEN FREE Buckwheat flour. Why was it so hard to find? I could not find it ANYWHERE in Edmonton, Leduc, Beaumont … I was getting frustrated!
I could find Buckwheat flour but NOT Gluten Free. If you are unaware, if it is not listed as ‘GF’ … it most likely has been milled on a mill that has also had wheat or barley … not good if you are a celiac!
I had bought it before … but it had seemed to disappear! Anyway … I had pretty much given up. I googled on the internet and found it on-line … which I did order … and it was delivered to my door in less than 5 days AND they waived shipping if I spent $29! THAT is a pretty good deal!
In my googling … I also found a store that carried Gluten Free Buckwheat flour in Edmonton … Earth’s General Store. They have a store on Whyte Ave and Downtown.
The kids and I jumped to go to the Whyte Ave store. I must say that I loved this little store. The employees were so friendly and helpful. They had items that I had never seen anywhere else.
It is a typical ‘oraganic’ little shop … but their prices are really reasonable for that kind of a shop. They also have larger bags of GF Buckwheat Flour (and others) … 2kg … which is so much nicer than small little bags!
I don’t think my son liked our ‘mission’ to find GF Buckwheat Flour … as when he saw me picking up ONE 2kg bag … he raised his eye brows and said, ‘shouldn’t you just pick up 2-3 so we DON’T have to come again!’. Ha! I had to laugh … wisdom from an eleven year old!
So, if you are getting in the mood for baking … with the cooler temperatures …. stop in Earth’s General Store and pick up some Gluten Free Flours or Mixes.
