Are you, or someone you know, following a gluten-free diet? Celiac disease, including gluten sensitivity, can be challenging to manage, but at The Markets, we provide the information and resources you need to live a healthy lifestyle.
Gluten is protein in all forms of wheat, rye and barley. Many products you wouldn't suspect contain these, making shopping for food challenging. Take heart: a growing number of food producers are offering gluten-free options. At The Markets, we carry over 600 gluten-free products, with more added to our shelves daily. Follow our gluten-free shelf tags to direct you to a world of new choices.. Some of the popular gluten-free providers we carry include Amy's, Yummy Earth, Food for Life and Annie's Homegrown. We also offer gluten-free options in ready-to-eat foods from our Market Kitchen. Now everyone can enjoy delicious fresh foods.
In Whatcom County, local support group BGIG (Bellingham Gluten Information Group), meets regularly, providing education and a full calendar of events. Visit their website at GlutenFreeWay.info. As always with any possible medical condition, visit your healthcare professional for guidance.
