Awesome Gluten-free Store in Grand Rapids, MI,
March 04, 2011
If you are tired of reading labels on everything you buy at the grocery store, you must go to Saffrons A Gluten Free Marketplace. EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING is gluten-free. I suppose you could even say that the freedom from having to read labels is the 'vacation' here as you get supplies for you family meal.
This store has over 900 different items that you can choose from for breakfast, lunch, dinner. If you want yummy and nutritious snacks and desserts, you can find lots to choose from. There are crackers, cookies, luscious looking chocolate cake, granola bars, and much more.
If you want to do your own baking, everything you need you can find here. Rachael DenHerder, who with her husband owns this store, can help you find what you need and is willing to offer suggestions.
Udi's breads, Ener-G Crackers, pizza crust and prepared pizzas, popcorn, Conte's Stuffed Shells with Marinara Sauce (wonderfully tasty) - just a few things I have enjoyed.
They do not carry any fresh fruit or produce.
The store opened the first of May, 2010 and this May, 2011 they hope to offer internet shopping. Every Saturday is "Sample Saturday" with samples of many products available.
They are on Facebook: Saffrons A Gluten Free Marketplace.
I'm sure you will find something to enjoy if you shop at this store.
