Best GF bread, burger rolls, and even the everything bagels. Hats off to their supplier.

Also the Pringle style potato chips.

The staff was super helpful and the food is high quality and affordable. I do wish they had even more gluten free options. Some foods might be made in the same facility as gluten, so you have to check for that.

I used to love TJ's before having to go GF. Now, I'm a bit disappointed with their selection. I would've thought this store would cater to us a little bit more.

Be very careful! Many of their gluten-free products are made in wheat-using factories. Read the labels very closely to stay safe.

I love TJ's because they have a list of everything that is gluten free which makes it easier for a first time shopper.

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

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.

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.
