Hi all, I am newly diagnosed Celiac and wanted to know where you all buy your food - I live in Toronto's west end but am willing to travel!
Any recommendations? Many thanks!

I'm actually just starting a website that will have lots of just the kind of information you're looking for. It won't be officially launched for another week, but please feel free to check it out. There's even an interactive map that will show you the locations of some of the stores in the city and what you can get at each. The URL is www.glutenfreeintoronto.com. What specifically are you looking for? You can email me at connect@glutenfreeintoronto.com. Cheers!

I am a gluten free consultant in the Greater Toronto Area. I take people on shopping tours at their local supermarkets or health food stores and teach them where to find the best deals and how to read labels.
Take care,

Metro and Loblaw's both have fairly large selection of gluten free now. As do most health food stores.

Check out Molly B's website! I usually stop by their location at Weston & Steeles. The freshly baked bread is delicious and they have a wide selection of tarts, muffins and cookies. I've picked-up items for quite a few people who are not on gluten free diets and they absolutely love the treats. You can pick-up pizza dough (used at il Fornello restaurants, pierogies, crepes, bagels and much more! Definitely two thumbs up!

The west end just got a new gluten-free bakery called Bunners on Dundas in the Junction. We also have The Sweet Potato organic market that carries a decent selection of GF goods. Those visiting this blog might also be interested in my book Living Well with Celiac Disease: Abundance Beyond Wheat & Gluten... it covers a lot of great ethnic shopping options for those of us lucky enough to live in Toronto!! Be well - Claudine
