WTF, quinoa prices??

Sure, I've been on a couscous kick for a while — but holy cow, when did quinoa prices rise so sharply?? The boxes of red or white that I once bought for $4-ish are now selling for $8.49 at an organic grocery store; my regular chain store apparently no longer even carries it. I found white quinoa for $2.99/pound in the bulk bins at the organic place, but was looking for red. Guess I'm sticking with the couscous, or the white in bulk. I thought it was gaining in popularity, so would have expected it to be easier to find, not harder! Has anyone else noticed the rise in price?
