Love TJ’s but they really aren’t for the gluten sensitive. I would stick to Sprout’s or Whole Foods. It’s unfortunate because I used to love this store but since going gluten free I’ve realized they don’t have as many options as you would expect.

I am so happy Trader Joes carry more gf options. There wasn't a lot about 4 years ago.

TJ has very few GF items. If you go, stick to the fresh foods and dairy. Forget the frozen section.

Decent grocery store. You won't see the varied selection you would at a Fry's, but the quality of the GF goods are much better. The GF bagels and bread are excellent, and they have many GF snacks you'd be hard pressed to find at this quality other than at a GF bakery. You sometimes need to hunt for some of the GF goods as they're not always labeled in the most obvious ways. Here's something people often miss: the tamales they sell are all GF and excellent.

All I can say- best bread that is not cardboard. Go to the GF section by the eggs and pick up Italian Bread. You will never have thought it was GF. Same for the Cinnamon raisin.
