This is my favorite “Gluten Free” grocery store. Their GF muffins, breads, and noodles are the best in my opinion. They have chocolate muffins that taste the closest to regular chocolate cake that I have found.

There are some options for gluten free breads and pasta but the selection is limited. The prepackaged meals do have some good options that are gluten free but double check the label.

I was so pleased to read about the “Gluten Free Everything Bagels” in a blog. She praised them saying how delicious they are. So I went to Trader Joe’s and snatched a bag of the bagels under the store brand name. Once I got settled upon my return I anxiously made a sandwich. There was no disappointment and I am soooo excited that I can have a bagel again that tastes sooo good! With other brands of GF breads I always think, “this is better than no bread”. Not this time! The everything bagel is delicious and it toasted very well. As far as other products they have GF items throughout the store. Including GF chocolate muffins. I didn’t get them because they looked so good I figured I’d eat all 4 at once. This was my first visit since my doc gave me the no GF orders and I was very, very pleased!!

You must shop carefully at Trader Joe’s because a lot of the food being sold isn’t gluten free. But the stuff that is gluten free is delicious and crave-able. My favorites include the gluten free sandwich bread and bagels. Try the pumpkin one it’s yummy. Also they have gluten free muffins, cookies, crackers, soups, and pasta. If you ever have any doubt ask the staff they are more than happy to look up the ingredients. But this store is worth it and the gluten free treats are delicious.

TJ has very few GF items. If you go, stick to the fresh foods and dairy. Forget the frozen section.

Love TJ’s but they really aren’t for the gluten sensitive. I would stick to Sprout’s or Whole Foods. It’s unfortunate because I used to love this store but since going gluten free I’ve realized they don’t have as many options as you would expect.

Decent grocery store. You won't see the varied selection you would at a Fry's, but the quality of the GF goods are much better. The GF bagels and bread are excellent, and they have many GF snacks you'd be hard pressed to find at this quality other than at a GF bakery. You sometimes need to hunt for some of the GF goods as they're not always labeled in the most obvious ways. Here's something people often miss: the tamales they sell are all GF and excellent.

All I can say- best bread that is not cardboard. Go to the GF section by the eggs and pick up Italian Bread. You will never have thought it was GF. Same for the Cinnamon raisin.

Your tried and true Trader Joe’s. A grocery store, not a restaurant. Plenty of grab and go meals. Frozen meals. Fresh fruits and veggie, meat and cheese. GF bread, bagels, tortillas, frozen waffles-pancakes-pizza, snacks!

They have a good selection of gluten free cookies, crackers and chips. They also have gluten free bread and buns everyday!! They also have gluten brownie mixes and flour. In the winter they have one or two gluten free ready made soups. Sadly they have gotten rid of some gluten free items like gf breadcrumbs. But overall they carry a decent amount of gf stuff. Read the label and ask the staff. If it’s not marked as gluten free it possibly risky to buy.

GF breads to the right as you enter. Other GF foods are mixed throughout store so you have to search for them. Customer Service provided me a list of available GF foods; looked like a printout from over a year ago (August 2019).

Nearly all grocery stores around here carry the same number, if not more, of gluten-free products. This is by no means a special place for celiacs. In addition, some gluten-free products contain dairy if that is an issue for you as well. Not worth a special trip.

I NEVER have a parking problem at this Trader Joe’s. It’s crowded but I always park away from the front door. I never have to circle the parking lot, and there are parking attendants to assist guests.

Anyhow, they have a nice selection of high-quality products that are certified gluten-free. I wish there were more crackers. I love their bread selection. The seasonal hamburger buns are unbelievably good! They are spongy and flavorful.

I’ve trusted trader joes brand products more than any others because they consistently list any allergens under the ingredients, as well as any potential for cross-contamination. Management was also very responsive after I explained that their gluten free rice panko could not be placed next to paper sacks of flour and on my shopping trip (and all subsequent) their gluten free baking products were thoroughly wiped clean and reorganized to be together on the top shelf while their flour remained on the bottom shelf.

Anything labeled gluten free must test under 20ppm. Walnuts, almonds and pecans are safe for celiacs-no shared equipment used to process. If you ask, they will call to verify how an item is processed having an answer in 5-10 minutes.

I only go there for store brand bagels and sandwich bread. I’ll stock up and freeze what i buy so i can make less trips there. Unfriendly staff, parking is a nightmare and no fresh prepared GF food. It’s great if you’re eating organic, not GF.
