G-Free NYC: An Entirely Gluten Free Market

My friend Ariel recently told me that as she was walking around her neighborhood she saw G-Free NYC, an entirely gluten free store.  While the Upper West Side is a bit of a trek from my apartment, I couldn't resist the opportunity to check out a potential gluten free mecca and so I made plans to meet a friend for a walk in Central Park and then visit G-Free NYC.

When we arrived I was initially overwhelmed, as the store is small and packed with treats.  I am also used to having to pick and choose through products to find gluten free ones instead of being able to eat everything, so to have so many choices after so many years of not having an available variety made for an exciting shopping experience.

The store carries products including fresh-baked bread, cupcakes from Tu-Lu's, cake balls from The Little Cakes, pastas, chips, cookies, crackers, candy and even breath mints.  Best of all, they had many products which I had never seen before and I always enjoy diversifying my eating.

While G-Free NYC is not in the most convenient location for me, I will definitely be going back to support the business.  I especially loved how many freshly baked goods the store sold and how unique some of the products sold are.

Do you love it or do you love it?
