A Post For Locals

I found myself in Wahoo today (yes, that is really the name of the town) and stopped at the Warehouse Surplus (126 East 5th Street Ph#402-443-5377). If you're not clued-in , the front of the shop is filled with silly nick knacks, but the rear of the store has wholesale commercial food items (large bags of flour, rice, spices...pretty much anything you can think of). Their prices on bread flour haven't gone up yet so if you're a baker and live in Nebraska this might be a good time to take a trip up Rt.77. Then, you can go next door to the Wigwam Cafe for lunch (yes, you really ought to). I've also purchased large bags of yeast for really a tenth of what the grocery store charges. The flour products are all General Mills and the yeast is Fleischmans-so no weird brands you've never heard of.

They also have a small amount of fresh produce that rotates daily. Today I bought a pint of grape tomatoes for .50 cents and two packages of fresh blackberries for a dollar each. They were all in very good shape.

If you're not a baker, but like fresh baked bread they have a freezer case filled with different varieties of frozen bread. I can't say enough nice things about the place, so I'll just encourage you to check it out if you find yourself in Wahoo, Nebraska.
