When Linda Klimack bought Scoop n’ Weigh 15 years ago, the bulk food shop catered to customers searching for gluten-free baking flours and specialty ingredients like pink salt. Since then the store has become the local go-to for bulk grocery shopping, and acts a culinary candy shop for a number of retired chefs and foodies seeking specialty gourmet ingredients. A move and expansion five years ago has translated into a delightful retail assortment of kitchen equipment and accessories, including special baking tools and garnishes that elevate holiday confections. Klimack boasts a strong representation of local products, such as La Cocina corn chips, Wild Man rice soups and Cavena Nuda Naked Oats. “I am passionate about cooking and finding special ingredients,” says Linda. She shares her passion with a community of loyal customers by delivering food knowledge and recipe suggestions on location and in its regular email newsletter. 105-1770 Taylor Ave, 204-489-1031.
