Well, they used to be five star a gluten-free grocery store. Now, not so much.

I used to go through the aisles and say "no, Christine, do not buy the produce because it goes bad quickly." And always give in.. and my fruits and vegetables would be bad within two days. Now, you can find me bypassing produce and then sifting endlessly through products reading the backs of the packaging just to find something -anything- I can eat.

Recently, they removed the gluten-free aisle labels, making it difficult to find gf options. Then, if you finally find a product labeled gluten-free, make sure you also check the back of the packaging to make sure it is in fact gluten-free and made a gluten-free facility.

No thanks. Whole Foods ... Harris Teeter ... Farm Fresh.. Etc are where it's at.

ok gf selection but I found out by store employee that their gluten free store brand products are not really gluten free. Certified gluten free is best.

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.

Your tried and true Trader Joe’s. A grocery store, not a restaurant. Plenty of grab and go meals. Frozen meals. Fresh fruits and veggie, meat and cheese. GF bread, bagels, tortillas, frozen waffles-pancakes-pizza, snacks!

They have a good selection of gluten free cookies, crackers and chips. They also have gluten free bread and buns everyday!! They also have gluten brownie mixes and flour. In the winter they have one or two gluten free ready made soups. Sadly they have gotten rid of some gluten free items like gf breadcrumbs. But overall they carry a decent amount of gf stuff. Read the label and ask the staff. If it’s not marked as gluten free it possibly risky to buy.
