I get most of my fresh produce and nuts from whole foods.
WE also have a discount produce store in Chicago called Stanleys, as well as several farmer's markets in the summer.
For specialty items like Maca ( I like the raw flax-hemp-maca powder for smoothies) - I go to Karyn's Raw Cafe here in Chicago.
Our whole foods actually has a whole raw food section for crackers and nuts and agave and cookies, etc. Plus they have a decent selection of raw desserts. We're spoiled.
KAryn's does a raw food delivery package as does the other raw food cafe in town- Cousin's IV. I haven't tried either of those services but it sure is nice to know you can get raw food as easily as pizza!
As for seeds, nuts and powders- if you local store doesn't keep it on the shelf- be sure to ask if they'll special order it for you. Most will.
I use www.nutsonline.com for the nuts, medjool dates, and occasional other dry fruits.
I get my hemp from Manitoba Harvest.
Also, I get maca and cacao beans from www.rawfood.com, but might get the cacao from Amazon now as its cheaper and Jozzie thinks it's delicious
I get my produce from a very inexpensive produce market in the downtown east side section of Vancouver (a very poor neighborhood, but not as scary as people think). It's called Sunrise Market and it's been around for 30 years. I can get pineapples for $1, 3 cucumbers for a dollar, tomatoes for 0.29/pound... it's amazing.
I get almonds, cashews, raw cacao, coconut, maca, lucuma, mesquite, chia, goji berries, and some other specialty products from Real Raw Food, which is a Canadian company located near me. Even with shipping, their prices beat my local stores and they're also the only source I know of for really raw almonds and cashews. They require a minimum order of $100 but I have no problem meeting that--I usually buy 5 pounds of almonds per month, for example, and that's $45 right there.
I get sunflower seeds, buckwheat groats, and a few other things from Capers, which is a local fancy-pants grocery chain that Whole Foods just bought.
I get some other nuts (walnuts, pecans, pine nuts), honey, and flax from Costco.
They have great customer service, but the shipping is a little expensive. I just make bulk orders every once in a while to offset that. Plus, it's the only place that has EVERYTHING so I don't have to place multiple orders. My husband is crazy about the medjool dates, they are very good
i've tried a few companies, including the ones mentioned. all good. but since it gets quite costly, i now order from www.dimondhealth.com because there are such huge savings. also can order stuff not on website. i prefer to order from one place whenever possible.
nutsonline isn't too bad, but many of their products arent really raw or organic. i ask them beforehand especially if something seems too cheap.
