    We visited The French Market in downtown Knoxville, despite previous reviews on this app. When we ordered, we asked the staff about the glutenfree status of the crepes -- and they reported that the buckwheat is wheat-free, but that there is the risk of cross-contamination. I do have diagnosed Celiac Disease, but also acknowledge that cross-contamination is all around us, most every time we eat out. I'm therefore torn how to rate this restaurant -- they are aware of and acknowledge the cross-contamination in the products, so for that alone, for those with a sensitive or who choose to eat gluten-free this is a valid option for you. For someone who is incredibly sensitive or allergic to gluten, I would recommend avoiding all dishes since there is simply SO much wheat flour in use at this establishment.

    Tasty food but NOT gluten-free! The buckwheat crepes still have wheat flour in them. I don't have celiac's but am somewhat sensitive to gluten. I love eating here but wish they had a gluten-free shells. They have good vegetarian options but not vegan.

    As a former employee, I can honestly report that the first ingredient listed on the "Buckwheat" batter is Wheat Flour. It is cut with buckwheat. It is by NO MEANS gluten friendly.

    Delicious food but gluten free friendly only, no dedicated grill. I had the vegetarian deluxe crepe - swiss cheese, baby spinach, tomatoes, artichokes hearts, avocado, and feta on a buckwheat crepe. My husband liked his but he ate a bunch of mine too. Delicious. Delightful owner.

    All the food is delicious but the buckwheat crepes are processed in a factory that processes wheat, so eat at your own risk. Definitely not for people with celiac's.

    Would give it 5 stars if it buckwheat crepes were 100% GF. Food is awesome and it's just a fun place to be/eat. As another reviewer said, not for those with Celiac.

    Stopped on the way through because of the reviews here. Staff was really friendly, crepes were great, both the savory and sweet in the buckwheat. Had GF beer from Spain. Also located on a fun street with nightlife. Definitely enjoyed the food and visit.

    I would give this five stars but I've gotten sick on occasion when they were really busy and forgot to clean off the stove. Buckwheat crepes but the buckwheat is from a factory in France that sometimes processes wheat products. 90% of the time this is the perfect place to go!
