As many people hone their baking skills while social distancing, getting flour and yeast at the local grocery store has become a bit of a challenge.
Here are a few places that are outside of your typical grocery store and big-box shop in Metro Vancouver that are selling flour and yeast. You will find restaurants selling groceries on this list as well as small, local specialty shops.
Please note that you will find the pricing a bit higher than what you would get from a big-box shop like Costco.
If you have a suggestion for this list, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me @foodgressing on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, TikTok and Instagram.
