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.

As a European resident visiting this store is amazing! So many gf options! Not only all the fresh items and produce, but dried goods, packages, quick/ready meals. Wonderful! Everything is stacked on the shelves with the rest of those items (no separate gf section) which I like too. I can shop for the whole family at the same time, not everyone else… and then me.

I hate coming here because it’s so big. You would think they would have gobs of gf stuff, but they have little and it is spread out everywhere and side by side with gluten counterparts. Please keep my gf stuff AWAY from the gluten stuff. I spend way too much time trying to find everything, and I feel like compared to Sprouts or Natural Grocers that they have the least knowledge employees and the HIGHEST prices. I also would never eat something from their lunch area because it’s a mess. No way I'm chancing that.

Don’t go out of your way thinking they will have GF food. It’s slim pickings. Among the fewest grocery options I’ve seen in a Whole Foods.
