No, there is no such store.

I wish local grocery stores could be just a little bit like Wegmans and have a larger selection of gluten-free food, especially baked goods. No store in the Triangle area steps up to the plate. The few times I'm in Rochester, I love the Newman's gluten-free "Oreo" type cookies and fresh (but frozen) baked goods, such as English muffins. I wish I could get them here.

The new Walmart near Triangle Town Center has a few shelves of gluten-free food, including pasta, but the shelves are always pretty much bare when we go there.

There used to be a gluten-free bakery downtown called Rosie's, but they went out of business.

There is a gluten-free bakery that sells food at the Raleigh North Hills farmer's market, but today is the last day of the season for that farmer's market. They seem to sell out pretty quickly, too.

I noticed that the frozen gluten-free English muffins were on sale at the Wade Avenue Whole Foods; still almost $5 for a pack of 6, but if you're really having a craving, it's cheaper than going to Rochester

That Whole Foods has a dry-goods shelf and a frozen section of GF stuff. It's pricey, but probably good quality. No personal experience with it, though.

Earth Fare has a large selection of frozen gluten-free items.

I noticed today that the Wade Ave Whole Foods has GF pies (apple, pumpkin, and pecan) in a cold case in their bakery in addition to the pies in their freezer section.... probably just for the holidays. They looked really good!

I'll have to revisit Whole Foods. Last time I was there, the offerings were meager. PIES?! WOW!

Thanks for info.

Good to see so many resources for GF food in the area. We are a food allergy family, and can't wait to try out all these options!!!
