I just read this thread as I have just joined as well. I'm in Merced and drive to Stockton for work. I recently found a store run by a nice lady that is called "It's Gluten Free" in Turlock. The store is off of Monte Vista, west of the 99 and is in the Costco Parking/ Shopping center area. I was pleased with the amount of products available (way more than Raley's in Merced). I look forward to more learning on this forum.
