Where to buy Quinoa other than Costco?

I've always bought my little bags of truRoots organic Quinoa from Costco. Recently they've raised the price which got me thinking what other places can I get these little superfoods from? I'm sure Wholefoods carry them too but I'm sure they're much more than Costco's. Where do you buy your Quinoa?

I just get it at Superstore. I don't go through that much of it so like the smaller size I can buy there. The price is reasonable.

Interesting I'm regular shopper at Superstore and Shoppers Drug Mart in Vancouver, BC but haven't noticed it. I will ask a staff next time. I don't think we even have Freshco on the west coast?

If you get out to Richmond try Galloway's on Alderbridge near No 3 Rd. They carry a few different types of Quinoa and in a few different size packages. I'm pretty sure Costco is cheaper but Galloway's has a great selection.

There are usually a couple of brands (including PC) with the rice, then there's Organic PC and another brand in the "Health Food" aisle.

Save-on-Foods (BC) has it. Probably "okay price" when on sale.

TruRoots 28 oz quinoa at Costco finally hit $20! I've been buying them last 5yrs for my diabetic grandma. This same bag was $9.99 two years ago. I can no longer tolerate the $20 price point. I cannot find them at Superstore.

It doesn't have to be TruRoots brand but has to be pre-washed. What is the more economical alternative to Costco?

I doubt you're going to find a more economical alternative than Costco. They will be smaller quantities, though, at a higher per unit price.

My local Costco in Mississauga is now selling it for $23.99 :( Different brand but same size package.

I stocked up last time they had a $2 coupon for TruRoots, so bought 10 bags at $6.99 but supply down to half now :(

I'm done buying Quinoa. I understand the whole demand & supply in the Andes Mountain but its turning into a cash grab imo. Switching to black rice.

Looks like Walmart is the cheapest.
Looks like a new retailer was added to HealthyPrice.ca. Yupik seems to be cheaper than Walmart but you need to buy 25lbs (lol - a bit more than Costco makes you buy).
