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.

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.

Good for GF groceries. Would be nice if they specified whether their prepared foods and salad bar are GF but they don’t.
