Source for bulk almonds: NYC or online

Hi!

I used to buy almonds in bulk from Costco but I've since lost my membership. I'm looking for a source for bulk, raw almonds (~3-5 lbs) in the NYC area (ideally Manhattan) or online. If online, I prefer if you could point me to a specific farm's website instead of sources like nuts.com.

Thanks in advance

Much thanks. I've actually came across this website before but I lost it again. Any comments on the quality of the products/shipping/price/etc?

I've seen reviews that Amazon's nuts tend to be a bit rancid (not usually for almonds but other nuts), I've been kinda iffy after hearing that ever since. Thanks tho!

Just curious: why is nuts.com not sufficient/avoided by you? I haven't found nut farms to sell in small enough amounts to individual consumers in a convenient and cost-efficient way. Especially since I love a wide variety of nuts and most farms I have come across are pretty specialized. So I shop regularly from nuts.com and am pretty satisfied, but it would be interesting to hear what better options I might not be aware of.

Hi!

I'm not really against nuts.com per se - I'm just looking for other options since I prefer to buy from the producer directly. Sometimes, the producers have more varieties that aren't available on nuts.com or they sell it cheap if you buy in 5lb bags. I agree that if you are only looking for small quantities of a variety of nuts, sites like nuts.com or similar would make more sense.

Anyway, I came across a recommendation for a variety of nuts from farmers for all kinds of nuts except almonds (http://chowhound.chow.com...), I thought I'll see what other options there are besides nuts.com. And of course, if you live near Costco, they sell nuts by 3lb bags.

Cheers!

I always thought that Kalustyan is more of a spice store. I admit that I wasn't looking for nut whenever I'm there but I'll check it out. Thanks.

Best bulk place in Manhattan ever: the 9th Ave International Foods Market. http://www.yelp.com/biz...
Just have a look at the pics. I LOVE it. They sell everything in bulk, and I found all their nuts and homemeade products do be delicious.
