I have to agree with the earlier review. I cannot purchase fresh fish or meat at this location. See the pictures that I posted, prepared food containing wheat and gluten products in both the sea food and meat cases that is always either touching or evidence of actual contamination on the fresh meat next to it. I brought this gluten contamination issue to the store's manager and she told me they "cannot guarantee gluten free on any of their fresh fish and meat departments"! And that I should ask them to get my selection from the back. That's all well and good, but the scales and prep areas are still contaminated.

This wasn't gluten related I don't believe, but minutes after eating "fresh" red snapper I because extremely ill, not being able to hold down dinner. I made a call to the store and I was then contacted by a third party, apparently I was the only one who got sick eating their red snapper that night.

If you have celiac, be extremely cautious when buying fresh meat and fish from this location.

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.
