gluten free at famous foods, and more!

photo credit: www.famousfoods.ca
today I made a special trip to a wonderful grocery store called Famous Foods. have you heard of it? I hadn't until I moved nearby a few years ago, and several of our neighbors were already regulars there. we have since moved to a different neighborhood, so shopping here requires a special trip, but we go every once in a while to stock up on bulk beans, rice, spices, dried fruit, and flours, which we did today. not only is the selection of these items amazing, but the prices are hard to beat. what I also discovered today is that Famous Foods has an excellent array of gluten free foods, even some products I was not aware of!

Famous Foods is located at 1595 Kingsway in the Kensington-Cedar Cottage neighborhood of Vancouver (see map). known as Vancouver's original natural food store, Famous Foods has a dedicated following of customers who rave about their selection of good quality non-medicated and organic meats (chicken, pork, buffalo, wild boar, local lamb), well priced gourmet and exotic ingredients, organic produce and groceries in general, and the free parking behind the store! what I will rave about is their selection of gluten free foods. Famous Foods does not have a gluten free labeling system like Choices or Whole Foods, but somehow, in this store, I don't mind as many products these days are clearly marked with gluten free labels anyway. here is a list of the gluten free foods I found at Famous Foods today, I may have missed some, since there is so much to look at here, the product variety is astounding!

hodgson mill brown rice pastas
tinkyada brown rice pastas
ancient harvest quinoa flakes
nature's path organic cereals (local)
enviro-kidz cereals (local)
glutenfreeda instant oatmeal and burritos
enjoy life cereals
so delicious dairy free ice cream desserts

westpoint naturals flour mixes (local)

hot kid brown rice crisps and rice crackers
organic world food network bison pepperoni (made in maple ridge, bc, this is so good!)
freybe deli meats and sausages
grimm's fine foods deli meats and sausages
food for life brown rice tortillas

Robyn and I cannot believe our eyes. this is a remarkable list of trusted and mostly dedicated gluten free food companies! we wouldn't have believed this five years ago when we were diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and we can't imagine what it must have been like ten even twenty years ago? we are certain many of you do know, we'd love to hear how you coped back then, and how it feels today with so many options.

thank you Famous Foods for making gluten free shopping, and shopping in general, so easy and fun!  Andrea.

***please note that some of these companies are exclusively gluten free, while others are not. please check with the product websites to verify which products are gluten free.

I work in the hood and hadn't even thought of Famous Foods as a place for gluten-free. Think I'll take a stroll over there next week! You buy bulk foods? I was told not to buy bulk. Makes me crazy, because where else can you find nuts?!!
