I tried a local distributer and they were reluctant to sell directly to me and the customer they suggested purchasing through didn't answer their phone.
So I tried Dutch Valley Food Distributors. They will sell King Arthur flours directly to consumers. Their price list for King Arthur flour and their sales policy is below. You can pick it up at their facility in Myerstown, PA or they will ship. To get a 50 lb bag to my home in Northern VA is $10.50 shipping and $15.44 for the flour, seems pretty reasonable.
Contact for Dutch Valley is Burnell Martin, Customer Service Manager; 800-733-4191 Ext. 2319; firstname.lastname@example.org
They will send you a 213 page price list of their products if you really want to stock up on staples!Dutch Valley Food Distributors
