    They sell gluten free grocery items. I was told as for the buffet style food they can't guarantee it's gluten free because it's all made in the same kitchen.

    They have so many great packaged items but so disappointed they have no freshly prepared safe gluten free options. We live close and my husband and I eat here often but there are no safe items for our celiac kids. We would think a place like this would have its own counter or area for preparing safe food. Even the gelato wasn’t safe and the employee had no idea what I was talking about. Whole Foods needs to sept it up for having fresh food for gluten free and celiac people.

    They have gluten free calamari, gluten free roll options for burgers and all of the gluten free items labeled appropriately on their menu. They have about 6 different flavors of chicken wings that were all gluten free! Their French fries aren’t gluten free but they offer a salad as a side choice instead!

    This review is for “The Kitchen Counter” at this Whole Foods Market. I enjoyed a gluten free made to order burger (avocado, grilled onion, grilled mushroom, beef). One of the workers, whose son has celiac disease, offered to make me sweet potato fries from scratch in the back so that there wouldn’t be any cross contamination risk with fryer oil. My husband said his balsamic salmon risotto with roasted vegetables was delicious. I also enjoyed a glass of wine. James ordered a Gold Rush which was super tasty.

    I agree, it is a hustle to find GF in here sometimes. I’ve asked them which one was GF on their hot bar but was told probably non because they can’t guarantee cross contamination. It’s weird that a place like Whole Foods can’t muster up willingness to accommodate us since this is a health food store, when LOVEY’S and the Co-op can, and they are much smaller businesses. I also agree, their food often has too much pepper.

    Frozen selection is good but there are too many times where some of the hot food bar items don't have the ingredients listed or they will list the allergy containing ingredients on the bottom but then when you read the entire ingredient list is has gluten?! It doesn't make any sense. I have also seen people use spoons from a gluten item that is sitting right next to a non gluten item and use it, cross contaminating the food.

    I love eating at the hot bar at WF because the ingredients for each item are always listed. I’ll usually get some smoked chicken and roasted sweet potatoes and a steamed veggie. There are also a few sushi options that are gluten free! Just avoid anything with sauce (like spicy mayo) and obviously don’t use the soy sauce included. (BYO tamari!)

    I'm a local and do most of my regular shopping here with many gf choices. But I no longer get anything from the hot bar or sandwich bar (even though they have gf bread) because of cross contamination -- have gotten sick too many times. I do eat from the salad bar but with my own dressing.

    Be warned: the hot bar now has very few selections that are gluten free. Even the chili now has wheat in it. On a good day they will have one entree item that is gluten free. Most days though all they have is a side dish or two and maybe a soup. Most of the side dishes now include soy sauce. I spoke to customer service about this a few weeks ago. Nothing has changed.

    Gluten containing meats in deli case so all sliced meats and cheese are possibly contaminated. It’s not hard to carry gluten free ham that doesn’t contaminate your slicers—there are plenty available —they just aren’t trying.

    I've shopped at Whole Foods stores since 2003, when living in Houston, TX; Boulder, CO; Berkeley, CA; and while traveling to many cities around the country. This Whole Foods store in Sebastopol, CA does have more gluten free options than the other grocery stores in Sebastopol. However, I have also found it to be the least gluten free friendly Whole Foods of any place I've lived. I have to go to the Whole Foods in Santa Rosa to get many of my favorite gluten free items.

    Gluten free options are very scarce. Asked about gfree in the deli and they don't have many options and cannot guarantee the items will not be cross contaminated. 😳 They make it right there, should be able to clean an area or put paper down and have it be safe. Options throughout the store are pretty limited. Go else.

    This should be a reliable place to find well labeled products and the commercially packaged goods meet all labeling guidelines, BUT. The house prepared foods on the food bar are CONSISTENTLY under-labeled and ingredients are often not included. I can often see that thickeners or oils have been used but the chefs sometimes "wing it" and leave out ingredients. Or else the staff is lazy about posting the labels with ingredients. This morning I got half way thru an unlabeled mystery meat breakfast patty, (I chose because i didn't care what the meat was) before realizing it seems to have a wheat filler or breadcrumbs. I'm gluten intolerant and allergic to canola oil, so I've seen this pattern for thickeners and oils on the food bar across the whole chain in Los Angeles and I have been commenting on it for years. They don't seem to care. This place should be a refuge for people with special dietary needs but it's actually worse because they market as though they care but bury these land mines on the food bar. SO ANNOYING AND CARELESS.
