ISO Local SAF Instant Yeast sources

Does anyone know of a local supplier of bulk (i.e. 1lb packages) of SAF Instant Active yeast in Fairfield County, CT or Westchester County, NY? I have been searching the internet trying to find someone local that carries this without success. I have found it other places on-line, but the shipping ends up being more than the cost of the yeast. I have no problem finding the active dry yeast (Costco carries it in 1lb packages) but not the "instant" dry yeast.

I almost always get mine via mail order from the King Arthur flour folks. I buy several pounds at a time, which helps cut the shipping cost a bit. I've also had luck, believe it or not, buying bulk instant yeast on eBay.

Check with your area bakeries and see if you can order through them.

It's in the baking section at Whole Foods, if you have one near you.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
