Bulk goods, especially cheaper nuts in Taipei

I can find nuts and such around, but it’s always excessively packaged and, I suspect, more expensive than it needs to be.

Is there anything akin to a food cooperative in Taipei, or any place that has bulk nuts, grains, beans, dried fruit, etc.

I’d suggest Di Hua St. which I believe is in the Wanhua district of Taipei. Check it on a map, in any case. Its a street full of shops selling dried food products, along with nuts, seeds and various sorts of teas. You can buy your nuts in bulk from bins. I spend 500 NT or so every few months which keeps me going for a while. Your expected to take a bite out of nut to check for quality before you purchase.
