    where can I buy farro?

    Hi everyone,
    I just got Cooking Light and I want to try the Farro and Beet salad from this month's magazine, but I cannot find farro anywhere. I live in Northern VA. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Do you have a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's in your area? Those would be the first two places I'd check.

    When in doubt, there's always Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...1.157_15&fsc=4

    Still, you might be able to find other online sources cheaper.

    Yep, I'd check WF, TJ's and Wegmans in your area.

    if not, Williams-Sonoma, QVC, Amazon.com, King Arthur flour all have websites where it will probably be available.

    can't imagine TJ's not having it, though.

    I buy it at Whole Foods, and have a friend who lives in northern VA who finds it there as well.

    I've never seen it at Trader Joe's - I got our bagful from Whole Foods.

    If you have a store that sells in bulk[spices,nuts,grains, flour], you might want to check there.

    You might also try A.G. Ferrari if you have nothing local:

    They also have lots of other good stuff.

    Thanks everyone. I will try Whole Foods. Wegmans and Trader Joes do not have it.

    where can I buy farro?

    Farro, an ancient wheat grain, has become quite popular these days among ingredient-driven chefs and cooks. With this new found interest a lot of misinformation has also come along. I’m not sure when it began, but possibly as a result of a misinformed article written by Heidi Julavits in a New York Times Sunday magazine piece from November 2008...Tell me where Can I buy it..
