If you’ve ever been in a Greek market’s baking section and were not familiar with the labels and numbering system on the packages, you probably just kept going.

We encourage you to cook and bake with your family and friends, and enjoy the process. Engage your kids to help and learn. The memories, lessons, and laughter that result from your time together will last a lifetime, for them and for you. These are the moments that will forever be cherished…they are for us!
Got Greek Flour?
If you’re in the New York City area you can find these Greek flours (and more) at the following markets (they do phone orders and ship as well):
25-56 31st Street
LIC, N.Y, 11102
Mediterranean Foods (2 locations)
30-12 34th Street
Astoria, NY 11103
23-18 31st Street
Astoria, NY 11105
If you don’t live near these markets but have a Greek Orthodox Church nearby, chances are they know of a Greek/Mediterranean shop in the area.
Online shopping is the next best thing but you won’t find the selection that’s available in-store. Here’s where you can purchase Greek flour, as well as other foods and items:
King Arthur Flour has a comparable organic line as well as European-style varieties.
