Why an all Gluten Free Market? For many, eating gluten-free is not a choice rather it is the only medicine for good health for those with Celiac autoimmune disease, gluten intolerance or sensitivity. For others, avoiding gluten is a preference and integral to personal wellness. Whatever the reason, gluten-free foods don’t have to be sad and tasteless. The Gluten Free EatUP! was conceived and organized by Deb Goldstein of Levine's General Store (named after the original general store once owned by her great-grandparents in the Catskills), a new purveyor of gluten free foods and events and Tony Limuaco, food designer and chief fermenter at Kimcheelicious to broaden access to some of the most passionate and adherent gluten-free makers and the tastiest products out there, in a fun and casual setting. Our goal is to provide a platform and culture of sharing for a community of merchants, customers and friends - while dispelling some of the myths about being gluten free and Celiac Disease, along the way - to Meet. Eat. Be Free.
When you are gluten-free sometimes you feel like you are on the outside - not at the EatUP!.
