Looking for good food stores in Twin Cities

Hello All!

New here and moved to the Twin Cities area last fall. I used to live in Eau Claire, WI and was spoiled by a restaurant supply co. that sold to the public and a great bulk/whole foods country store near by.
So, where is a great food store in the Twin Cities area? I am specifically looking for good bulk chocolate and a good selection of flours. And just about anything good to eat at a decent price. Specialty/restaurant supply/ethnic would be great.
Thanks for looking!

David

What side of the Mississippi did you land on? :)
I know nothing about Minneapolis, I won't cross the river if I don't have to. I grew up in St.Paul. My brother is the exact opposite. Grew up in St.Paul but only goes there if my parents beg or guilt him. He went to college at Stout.
Mississippi Market Co-op has lots of great stuff. Or WHole Foods.... Byerly's, Lund's. Great stuff anyway. prices I cant tell you if they are a great deal or not.

The best food store in Minneapolis is the Wedge Community Coop. On Lyndale, near Lake Calhoun and the cool part of town.

When you are there, go to the prepared foods section and say hi to the manager, Anne. She's my sister!

Wedge Community Co-op | your natural foods cooperative grocery store

When you are in that part of town, make sure you hit Penzey's too!

I actually live in River Falls, WI but go to law school at William Mitchell in St. Paul so I am there every day.
Thanks for the suggestions! I will have to check them out soon.

Yes, Indianhead. Love that place. But my all time favorite place is Weavers in Fall Creek. I was actually in EC today and visited Weavers. Bought a lot of flour.
