    Anyone knows of a good source to buy organic Jasmine rice (up to 10 lbs at a time) online or near Los Angeles? The best I've found so far is $2/lbs:

    Seems to me like that's the best price available out there, in fact even 25lbs bags are typically over $50... if anyone has a better source let me know.

    Well I ended up buying the one I linked to but now that it's time to re-purchase, the price has gone up more than double!!!

    So the question is coming back - any good source for organic rice? Thanks!

    Thanks Brian, I'll have to check the local stores again, but at least the Thai store where I go on a regular basis doesn't carry anything organic. 

    I have to say, English is not my first language, but I have absolutely zero idea what this sentence means???

    Yes, language is a challenge in many ethnic shops. Indian stores because of language diversity. That is especially evident when buying spices. I often hang around until a younger person is seen, even a customer, to ask. Often they are more multi- lingual.

    Organic is nonexistent in many ethnic for store my experience. I think it is due in part by the history of eating for survival than eating healthy.

    Oh dear God... Thanks spelling corrector and my failure to proof read. That should be " beat the pants". But now that we're talking, neither seems to have anything I injoy doing or seeing!
