Where to buy nuts(cashew, almonds) and dried fruits in bulk?

Its expensive buying in the smaller packets the supermarkets are selling. Any suggestion where in Singapore I can buy nuts and dried fruits in bulk?

Thanks!

Have you try Phoon Huat? They have outlets at Clementi and Holland mostly selling baking needs items including nuts, dried fruits, etc

Try Mustafa if you want in bulk. All kinds of dry fruits on the 2nd floor. You should go there on a weekday morning/afternoon. Weekends and evenings after 6pm -it is a place to avoid.

yes, that's a good place to buy all the dry stuff. I love to buy from "Long Ma" - walnuts, almonds, american raisins, cranberries, figs, etc.

Thank you for your responses.

Regarding the market beside fu lu shou, I am just worried that the store owners spray insecticide around the shop to deter cockroaches. I had seen it in a market many years ago.
