Marlene's staff is wonderful about answering questions you may have. The deli has great gluten free food!
The coconut cream pie was fantastic! Sandwich was good. Deli was very mindful of cross contamination and suggested I not grill my sandwich.
This place is amazing! Don't miss the Deli upstairs. There are many gluten free options... made to order sandwiches, ready made salads, several beautiful cakes, pies, clearly labeled GF. Well worth the stop!
Love this place! It's along the lines of the nugget, whole foods or sprouts, but smaller. Great environment and GF options.
Great juice bar, coffee bar and GF and vegan options for snacks/meals at the deli. Come early in the day for the best selection of GF/vegan sweets. Good grocery selections. They have a good selection of GF personal care products for reasonable prices
This place is AMAZING!!! I feel so lucky to live close enough to shop at Marlene’s. The staff are the friendliest people I have met since moving here last month. A special shout out to Karen, in the body care/supplements area. 😊 The deli should really be called a restaurant. They serve wonderful GF soups and chili, as well as salads and frittatas. They even had a chili relleno casserole that was GF, and a lasagna too! The store itself had LOTS of GF products at very competitive prices. All in all, Marlene’s Market and Deli is a winner in my book! Highly recommend! Oh, and it is locally owned, not a franchise, only two stores; Tacoma and Federal Way. Go see them!
definitely risk of cross contamination. I watched the person prepping my GF sandwich cut it with a dirty knife. I tried to educate her but she didn't seem to care much. Good GF desserts though.
Terrific selection and plenty of GF groceries. Deli and salad bar didn't work for my daughter who is celiac but I'll bet it would be fine for less sensitive. For a town short on Trader Joes and While foods as well as Puget Coop, Marlene's looks like it could meet all your daily needs.
