gfree nyc has opened!!!

G-Free NYC
is a new store on the upper west side of Manhattan that carries all gluten free products. From the green grass lined windows to the bench out front, G-Free NYC is a dream come true for gluten free New Yorkers and visitors.

It is hard to believe when you walk in to the store that all the products are gluten free. They even have fresh baked goods--bread as well as cupcakes and cookies and brownies from Tully's Gluten Free Bakery--which is the best gf bakery I have found. And, I have to thank Tully's and G-Free NYC for teaming up to bring Tully's delicious baked goods fresh to the Upper West Side for parents who need gluten free treats for their kids (or themselves) or are unable to trek downtown. All the gluten free products in the store are hand picked by the owner from select sources. It is really "the best of the best" of gluten free products.

I am most excited that they carry Authentic Foods flour which I have been ordering from California for the last few years because they have a finely ground brown rice flour as well as a GF flour blend that gives baked goods the texture of regular baked goods but enables you to have some of the nutrients of brown rice. I love that I can save on shipping when I run out of flour and pick up a cupcake when I restock this essential item.

The gluten free dumplings were also a big hit with my kids.

And it is wonderful news that gfree nyc is NYC Celiac Disease Meetup groups newest sponsor!

Will keep you posted on all the great things happening at this new gluten free hub. This Saturday G-Free NYC has a bread samples available so stop by if you want to try their fresh baked bread. (FYI...the bread does have some dairy in it.) I have also posted Tully's info below if you are downtown.
