Where to Shop for Allergy-Friendly Ingredients and Products {a state-by-state, and international listing!}

One of the things I hear most often is how difficult it can be to change your shopping habits, or to discover which local-to-you places will best meet your needs after giving up gluten, dairy, or something else. It's true that we can all be successful by "shopping the perimeter" of our mainstream grocery stores for produce and what-not, but sometimes there is no getting around it. We need to know where to find dairy free chocolate chips and gluten free flour!

With that in mind, I'm hoping you'll help me to develop this list. Imagine if we could get at least one listing for every state. Add some international resources to that list, and my heart goes pitter-patter! If you've got something to add to this list, will you let me know with a comment or a message? I would be thrilled to add your favorite shopping spot to the list.

For future reference, you'll be able to find a link to this page  on the right-hand side bar at all times. {over there ----> }

  1. In Pullman or Moscow the Moscow Co-Op is allergy-friendly! And mainly local food:)

    1. Thanks Carlyn! You're right--the Co-Op is such an amazing place. I miss our college days and frequent trips over that way :)

  2. In Peoria Illinois Hy-vee and Naturally Yours both have many options. In Morton Il there is Colby's Natural Heath and in Bloomington Il there is another Naturally Yours.

    1. Thanks Becca! Adding your suggestions to the list right now!

  3. Whole Foods Co-Op in Duluth, MN. It's a great source of education and allergy free shopping.

  4. Oregon (Portland -Metro) Bob's Red Mill Company Store, New Seasons Market, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and more co-ops than I can list but almost never go to b/c I am in the west side burbs and I don;t want to drive that far!

    1. done! Thank you! ...and oh, can I tell you how much I want to visit the BRM Company Store one day?! I must add that to the list for my next Portland visit.

  5. Hi - not sure if you're looking for online options or not, but if you are, you can certainly add me to your list. I'm located in Nebraska, but ship anywhere in the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK.

  6. Sunflower Shoppe in Dallas/Fort Worth Texas is a great all-in-one place. I've had a lot of luck at Sprouts, too. Also, internationally, Rainbow Wholefoods in Norwich, UK is amazing. I wrote about them on my blog texaninnorwich.wordpress.com. They have a shop in the city centre, but also do wholesaling out of their warehouse.

  7. In Maryland:
    Rockville: Whole Foods, Trader Joes, My Organic Market
    Olney: Roots Organic Market

  8. Great idea! NY is more than downstate (NYC & LI).Wegmans for those in western ny. Peter's Cornucopia in New Hartford is a great option. I heard there is a great store in Oneonta and I would suspect that Albany/Capital region and Saratoga have a few options.
