Lots of good gluten free groceries and personal care items. When I asked, they advised that none of their fresh made food could be considered gluten free because of their open kitchen concept and pizza station. I chanced some veggies once and got sick later, so I should have heeded the warning.

the Whole Foods brand frozen dinner rolls are the best i’ve ever had. I get all of my GF favorites here! I wish they had an entire GF section, but there’s still so many options.

In the Whole Foods gluten free section they have bake at home croissants without ingredients labels on them. The croissants have gluten in them and I could only find one single box out of over 20 that had a label on it. I just wanted to warn everyone who goes to whole foods as this is obviously very dangerous to anyone with a serious gluten allergy.

The eatery at Whole Foods has a limited gluten free selection, along with alcoholic drinks. It’s a nice little place to eat with lots of healthy options.
