Went to Wegmans for the first time today, which is around PA,NY,VA as far as i know... They have an isle with gluten-free stuff, which is bigger than the gluten-free isle in the health store! and ALOT cheaper! The same bread thats 5.99 in our health food store is 3.49 in wegmans, SAME brand size everything.. lots of other good stuff and Wegmans grocery store brands all list allergens including wheat on the ingredients marked "A-allergens"... NOW I can eat real foods! i should say, now i can AFFORD to eat real foods ;)

don't forget to carefully read the ingredient labels on the ones marked as being allergen free - wheat free does *NOT* mean gluten free, as it could still have barley, rye, or oats.

The Wegmans brand puts Gluten-Free on their product so look for the G in the orange circle on the front of the product. Wheat free may not mean is is gluten-free. They are very good at labeling their product. The prices are decent. Tinkyada pasta is on sale a lot for 2.50 a bag which is far less than I pay in health food stores around here.

This is my favorite store!

I have to add my shout out to Wegmans :D I was just there yesterday. I love that store--I have no need to go to Whole Foods or the health food store anymore.

I find their prices fair, the selection excellent and I have not yet had a problem with any of their own products marked gluten-free.

I even get my Shikai haircare, Jason toothpaste, Zia and Badger stuff there--truly one stop!

I do agree, though--always read the ingredient list to be sure, and look for the orange G. ;) Even Wegman's advises this--

Their gluten-free list is updated regularly, and can be seen by clicking on "gluten free list" in the above link. :)

JerseyAngel-

I was there too yesterday, the store had a lot of Holiday products to offer for all tastes. I always see new products in the gluten-free section too. They now carry the Glutino frozen mac and cheese, and penne with mushroom sauce meals. These come in good when you want a quick meal.

The produce section in that store is amazing.

:D So you were there, too! Too bad we don't shop at the same location--we could meet for some tea. :)

I know--their frozen selection is amazing--I can't eat most of it because of other intolerances--but it's great for others on the gluten-free diet.

Love the produce--lots of organic, and the prices are really not bad.

Does your store have the huge kitchenware/giftware/china dept? We saw lots of beautiful things there--very nice quality and different. Not at all what you'd expect to see at a grocery store. :)

I usually shop at the Scranton store which is an older store but does have the kitchen section. The holiday section was amazing, so much to choose from. They always make their store so presentable. Their newer stores are amazing. We sometimes shop at the Hunt Valley, MD store. It is so much bigger than the Scranton store. You can eat upstairs and overlook the Cafe area.

That would be a lot of fun to meet for some tea. My fiance loves to get frozen Chai drinks when we go.

I worked for Wegmans for a while before my pregnancy turned not so good. They truly do care about all allergies to foods. Even in their pre made sections.. the chefs are all educated (well are supposed to be, I guess there can always be an exception) they offer quite a bit. In all the new Wegmans are the kitchen sections, holiday sections, even aisles for things from different countries, ie, Mexico, India, Britian etc... It makes shopping there such a joy.

I wasnt diagnosed while I was there, so I didnt get to use the gluten free marker at all, now I love it. They also mark lactose free and vegetarian. So it helps a variety of people. I know that Wegmans is spreading out all over the east coast. They are currently in NJ, NY, PA, and VA. I know that they are currently still working on stores in these states, but I wouldnt be surprised if they went further. I doubt they would ever go any further east as the company is totally family run and they want to be able to access any store at any time. If anyone ever gets the chance to work in Wegmans, I would highly suggest it.

I heart Wegman's!

I am so sad that I'm moving away from mine, but I heard they recently opened one in Hunt Valley, MD.

I have been to Hunt Valley and it is very nice :) You'll like it. I work at a hospital currently and although I love my job, I would probably leave it in a heart beat to work at Wegmans, I hear they are very good to their employees and the turn over rate is very low in their company. I know I always have a positive trip to their stores.

I'll have to say I wasn't so impressed w/ Wegman's gluten-free section. They didn't have much that I can't find closer to home (our new Wegman's in Warrington, PA is about a 20 min. drive). Plus... I was getting their weekly emails w/ recipes especially for Celiacs. I started writing to them immediately cause the stuff they were suggesting could easily NOT be gluten-free and they weren't cautioning anyone to read ingredients (one being gorgonzola cheese)! I heard nothing back from them.

Wow- I had a Celiac meal come with the print at the bottom that said, use this instead due to CC or wheat. Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the store. I find price wise, I do better going there.
