Market Special: Whole Foods’ Even Better Bulk

Have you seen the expanded bulk department at the Tustin Whole Foods? It was already really good, and is, as I’ve said (perhaps multiple times) before, my very favorite part of the store. Now, it’s positively magnificent—if that word can be applied to things like dried beans and wheat bran, and I think it can. I know that new Whole Foods are to have bigger bulk departments, with an increased emphasis on home cooking, but it was a wonderful surprise to see evidence of this program in the established (can it be 5 years old already?) Tustin store. I couldn’t resist beautifully mottled scarlet runner beans, and, those aren’t just any lentils up there, but the elusive French green lentils. I foresee saucisson et lentilles in my cooking future.
