Went on a bulk food run with my wonderful friend who, like me, is searching for ways to be thrifty and resourceful in the kitchen. We went Friday to the Bob’s Red Mill store, which is located here, just outside of Portland, Oregon.
The company is employee owned, which is a plus. When Bob retired, he turned the company over to the folks who work there. Way to go Bob. Although located here in town, Bob’s Red Mill sells nationally, and I used to buy their products back home in Northern Michigan.
As you can see the store mainly sells flours, grains, and baking mixes in bulk. They also have some nice kitchen equipment and bread baking machines. Their bulk food bin section has low prices, and the restaurant there serves tasty fare made from their own products.
Here is the food chillin at home.
Now it is my responsibility to set it up in clean dry bins on shelves in our basement. It’s a big job, since the bins need to be scrubbed and dried thoroughly, but I’m excited to further our food storage capacity in the basement. It feels good and secure to have all this flour and oats and sugar here at home. We won’t run out for a while now. No siree.
