I'm north of Hudson. I love Fresh and Natural in Hudson for shopping for gluten free foods. They mark their price tags with red if it's gluten free. So there's no guessing or reading labels.

I'm adopting Grandma Ferdon and her family! Love their products. I have about 30 packages of her lefse stored in my freezer. They make excellent wraps for sandwiches. Her pizza crust is the best I've found.

Northland Celiac Support Group meets at 6:45pm at the Hudson Hospital on the third Tuesday of the month. I have attend yet. Contact Cheri Rott 715-531-6467 for more info.

It's hard when you live in a remote part of the state like I do............Conover, which is nearly all the way to the UP, by Land O Lakes. Fortunately a couple of the stores up here have Bob's Red Mill products which I like and I make due with cooking gluten-free otherwise. I shop for the other things when I go to Janesville pretty often. Restaurants are becomng so famliar with the situation, even up here, that it really is not a problem for me anymore. Maybe that is a nice thing about living in a small place, people know you so well, that they just are so kind that they make sure your food is gluten-free. One thing for sure, you must make it well known and stick up for yourself. It is a continual education process. Do all of your know about Biaggi's in Madison? They have a large gluten-free menu and really nice food and service---they feature Italian cuisine. Their gluten-free pasta is a spinach one and it is really good. Another good place to eat in Madison, actually it is Middleton------Imperial Gardens on University Avenue. They also will cook just about anything on their menu gluten-free and and serve you gluten-free soy sauce. The service there is really nice, too. Noodles Inc. has rice noodles---I LOVE that place and of course, there is Changs............their lettuce wraps are my favorite. Another good place is Flat Top Grill near Hilldale, you pick out your food and they will grill it for you and they are very aware of the gluten thing. Happy eating. Barbara

Hi! I'm also from Wisconsin. We are from Warrens. My family is from Janesville and they are bringing me up food from Basic's food store. Another food store we found was in Lacrosse. The people's food co-op. We were told last week that my 2 year old son has Celiac disease. We are having alot of trouble because he is a really picky eater. I see that they have a book to help with shopping does anyone use this? I didn't know if it is worth the money or not. If anyone has any advice that would be great! :D

Hi, fellow Wisconsinites! I'm in Kenosha, just like FoodieGurl. Gurl, have you found any local support groups yet? I have just barely begun to look.

I DID come across a store in Milwaukee called the Gluten-Free Trading Company. Their ENTIRE STORE is gluten-free, plus they mail-order. I remember reading that they also have a casein-free area. I don't have any direct experience with them yet, but I'll be making a trip there soon. Here's their link: http://www.food4celiacs.com/

Hi FarmCat..i just sent you a message =)

I am actually going to go check out that store next week sometime, thanks for the link. I did go to Whole Foods today in Northbrook and picked up tons of gluten-free pasta and cookies from the bakery :P

I have not found a local support group either. I though I found one, and emailed the contact and got a response saying they are no longer a group...oops.

What city are you from? Any good Wisconsin gluten-free resources?

These posts made me homesick! I live in Ohio, now,but I went to Oshkosh high, my firstborn was born in Oconomowoc,, and I moved here from Lake Kegonsa ( near Stoughton, just south of Madison). I miss Wisconsin- I don't miss the weather! Have a great day. Part of my heart is still there! susan

FYI:
I live in oconomowoc, work in madison and find that there is a bounty of options for gluten-free food in grocery stores and gluten-free restaurants.
Stores:
Whole foods has the largest selection...don't shop the gluten-free aisle only...lot's of choices in snacks , pastas, box brownie and corn bread mixes, frozen section plus their own bakehouse gluten-free items.
The best Whole Foods is east side milwaukee ...north ave. and prospect ave.....has largest store and largest selection / variety.

Woodmans....madison locations have just taken on a larger frozen bakery section...life beyond wheat from antigo, decent sized dry goods ie: all the Chebe mixes...some bulk gluten-free flours but should be available in Kenosha and Milwaukee.
Chebe is a great substitute for a an italian roll ...of course nothing beats an italian beef from tenutas in Kenosha or a nice baguette from paiellis...but chebe comes close , easy enough to make( I really miss a nice italian sausage from tenutas for the ride home...yum-o)

Natural Outpost foods....tosa and bayview locations...smaller variety but a bit of each , dry , frozen, bulk...excellent yougurt...Nancy's

Pick n' Save....very inconsistent.....I've been in five different PNS this past two weeks...no consistency in availability...even in the same city....one of their largest stores ...No gluten-free section at all ??
odd story here about PNS....I was eating at a Noodles in december and the teen girl taking my order said"oh...you too ...I'm celiac also" I asked her where she thought the best stores were for gluten-free was and she said "we go to whole foods a lot...even though my dad works for PNS ...he's a buyer for them " ???? odd..the largest grocer in metro milwaukee....smallest gluten-free section

can't remember the name of this one....There is a newer store at the strip center right behind the Gasthaus at Silvernail and Hwy. T in waukesha....just off the I-94 and hwy "t" exit...nice selection Grandma Ferdon's dry and frozen goods even has gluten-free chow mein noodles, good prices,on snack bars, pastas, spices and mixes.

Silly Yak bakery in madison is just about finished with their dedicated gluten-free bakery addition...so it won't be limited to just two gluten-free bake days per week....excellent product

My favorite bakery is Molly's gluten-free bakery in Pewaukee...closer to hartland actually.....located just a minute off Hwy. 16 and Jungbluth road in the basement ofa large former dairy barn....sharing space with a winery....pre- order is a good idea....pita style breads , excellent hamburger buns, TWINKIES, cupcakes, fruit bars , brownies, cookies and made to order birthday cakes...excellent pie crust or pizza crusts for the single person on the go......true to the bakeries of old though....sell outs are usually the case in the world of fresh baked goods

I'll post about restaurants later....gotta sleep nowwwwwwwwww. shalom , kevin
