    I am looking for pastry flour (unbleached/not whole wheat) in small quantities (25 lbs. or less). I can't find it in any supermarkets and health food stores only carry whole wheat. I also don't want to go the cake flour/ap mixture route.

    Although I have found a couple of online sources, paying shipping costs for flour seems a bit much.

    I am trying to find it locally - Northern New Jersery, and, if necessary, NYC. I know it's a shot in the dark, but I do see a lot of posts by users in New York.

    Go into the bakery at your local Whole Foods. They use it. Purity from Taylor and Sands.

    Resaurant Depot may carry Pastry flour, you may have to special order.

    or a local bakery may be willing to sell you a bag or half.
