That’s right you read the title correctly, an all gluten-free store and the first of it’s kind in San Francisco. Every single item in this store is gluten-free. Gluten Free Reviewer Grocery started out as an online store, and if you go to their website you can check-out their whole story. GFR Grocery It’s worth a read.
I was very excited to head over to the store after checking out the products on their website. When I arrived the owner Topher Delany was working, and she gave me a most wonderful tour. She is incredibly personable and very hands on. She shared some of her personal favorites from the freezer selection (Iamori and Christine Upper Crust) and told me a bit about each of the bakeries. The shelves are stocked with hard to find gluten-free products, local, independent suppliers, global brands, and some good old stand-by’s that I always keep in my home. I definitely found the typical items one would expect a gluten-free grocery to stock, but there are also some special treasures I didn’t even know existed. One treasure came in the form of matzoh ball mix, or as eena kadeena calls it, Mock-Zah ball mix.
This hidden gem has shelves, freezers and refrigerators filled with unique gluten-free goodies. My questions were more then answered. A hand gesture to a section could never be imagined here. I am quite sure that I missed some things while walking around all wide eyed, like a kid in a candy store which makes me even more excited for my next trip.
