I'm ordering directly from Berlin Bakery....My DH can have spelt bread and he says theirs is the best
he's tasted.
Raisin-spelt is what I'm buying...they have other great products!

I've been buying and eating this bread for years.  It's the best, AFAIC.

I've found that spelt items are much harder to find than rice-based items. I can find rice pasta in Trader Joe's, rice pasta and rice flour in Whole Foods, rice flour and pasta in the local supermarkets; but only Fairway consistently has a wide selection of spelt products (while also carrying the compliant gluten-free products.) Shop-rite sometimes has whole spelt flour, but not always, and they never have any other spelt products.

I'm guessing there's less of a market for spelt products in North America as a whole; people who know little about nutrition will go ahead and eat the wheat (not needing spelt), while those who need to avoid gluten won't eat spelt anyway. This makes spelt a bit of a "specialty" product that's not easy to locate. For those who can safely eat spelt, using spelt products means that foods have a better texture than any gluten-free item, and may make the difference between sticking to BTD or deciding it's "too hard to follow."

I can't personally eat spelt but I do buy a lot of spelt flour and bread for my kids.
