Stores and Websites That Sell Gluten-Free Food

Like all aspects of the gluten-free diet, shopping for food becomes easier once you have some experience. Many foods are naturally gluten-free, and you’ll be able to buy these as before at your local supermarket.

If you live near a Whole Foods Market, a Wegmans, or a Trader Joe's, you are in luck, because these chains are veritable gold mines of gluten-free products. But if not, you can still take heart, because more and more grocery stores now allocate space to gluten-free products. (If your supermarket does not, tell the managers—and have your friends tell them—that it would be a good idea.) Generally speaking, health-food stores also can represent a good source for gluten-free products.

Following are the names of some supermarkets that make lists of their gluten-free products available on their websites.

But don’t forget: local stores are not your only option. If the stores listed below are not convenient for you, consider ordering your products by mail. The mail-order websites we’ve listed below represent only a small sample of the dozens of companies that will send gluten-free products directly to your door.

Hannaford: On the Hannaford website, you can view a list of foods in your local store that are considered gluten-free. Hannaford has locations in the Northeastern United States.

The Kroger Company: You might be surprised to learn how many individual grocery chains throughout the U.S. actually are owned by The Kroger Company. On all of them, searching under "gluten-free" pulls up a long list of gluten-free products sold in their stores.

  • Kroger
  • Fred Meyer
  • Ralphs
  • Baker's
  • King Soopers
  • Fry's Food Stores

Harris Teeter: Harris Teeter is also owned by The Kroger Company, but its website doesn't include the same list of gluten-free foods that's found for other Kroger-owned supermarket chains. Nonetheless, if you shop at Harris Teeter, you'll find a wide variety of possible products, generally clearly labeled as "gluten-free."

Publix: Publix does not maintain an online list of gluten-free products, but its stores carry a wide variety of safe options. The grocery store chain mixes its gluten-free foods in with the gluten-containing items (as opposed to placing them in their own special section), so always double-check to make sure you're picking up the correct product.

ShopRite: Shoprite’s list of gluten-free items is available online.

Stop and Shop: Stop and Shop Supermarkets’ list of gluten-free products is available on their website.

Trader Joe’s: Trader Joe’s offers a downloadable product list of their gluten-free items.

Wegmans: Wegmans keeps an online list containing some of its gluten-free selection, but you'll find many, many more options in-store. Expect an entire aisle filled with gluten-free packaged specialty goods, plus fresh gluten-free baked goods and frozen items displayed in their respective sections. Finally, all of Wegmans store-made sushi is gluten-free, right down to the gluten-free soy sauce and dipping sauces.

Whole Foods Market: The Whole Foods website provides store-specific lists of gluten-free items.

Supermarkets: Outside North America

Sainsbury’s (U.K.): Sainsbury's has a long history of catering to those who follow the gluten-free diet. The supermarket chain keeps a list of gluten-free items on its website. In addition to its list of gluten-free products, Sainsbury’s also publishes gluten-free recipes (on the recipe page, enter “gluten” as a search term).

Delhaize (Belgium): The Delhaize Company (which owns Food Lion and Hannaford in the U.S.) stocks an assortment of specialty food products for people who are gluten-free. These foods are displayed in a separate section in its stores. (Israel): This is the largest store in Israel for Kosher gluten-free products. They also ship worldwide.

Mail Order: Gluten-Free Prepared Foods (North America)

Ready-made gluten-free foods can be kept in the freezer and warmed up when you need something easy and quick to prepare. Many ready-to-eat gluten-free products are available in grocery stores, but if you need to order them by mail, consider these sites:

Dietary Specialities: Dietary Specialties offers gluten-free spaghetti, pie crusts, pizza, and other products.

Everybody Eats, Inc.: Everybody Eats is a New York City-based restaurant that specializes in gluten-free cuisine. They deliver in the five boroughs and ship nationwide via Federal Express. They offer gluten-free entrees, breads, pastas, desserts, and sweets freshly made in a 100% gluten free bakery. A partial list of their products appears on their website.

Mail Order: Gluten-Free Groceries and Baked Goods (North America)

Following are a few of the many companies from which you can order gluten-free products by mail.

Amazon: Amazon—which in recent years has sold plenty of packaged food—has a surprisingly good selection of gluten-free products. They're not grouped in one place; instead, if you want, say, gluten-free nut butter, you should search for "gluten-free nut butter." Understand that not everything on the forthcoming list will be considered gluten-free—you'll still have to do your due diligence by picking through ingredients lists and allergy statements for each individual product. In addition, some products may not come up in search but may still be gluten-free; you'll need to read through manufacturers' descriptions to be sure. But even given these caveats, Amazon can be a convenient place to buy your gluten-free products.

The Gluten-Free Mall: Offers a wide selection of gluten-free, wheat-free, casein-free and other allergy-related health foods and special dietary products, some of which you may not be able to find elsewhere.

Kinnikinnick Foods Inc.: Kinnikinnick Foods manufactures gluten-free and casein-free foods in its own dedicated gluten-free facility and offers a very large selection of gluten-free products, with a focus on bread products, muffins, buns and rolls, breakfast items (including frozen waffles), and donuts.

Mail Order: Gluten-Free Groceries and Baked Goods (Outside North America)

Amazon (U.K.): Like its U.S. counterpart, Amazon's U.K. web-based storefront carries plenty of gluten-free items.

GoodnessDirect (U.K.): GoodnessDirect sells food and other health products for customers in the U.K. with special dietary needs. Their products include gluten-free baby foods.

A Word From Verywell

Shopping for gluten-free food is easier than in years past, but it still can be a frustrating experience. Nonetheless, gluten-free lists and gluten-free labeling offered by large supermarket chains and online retail outlets can make this frustrating process much easier.

As you're shopping, though, remember to keep in mind that stores and websites sometimes are inconsistent in labeling products "gluten-free." When buying, you still need to check carefully to make sure what you've chosen is, in fact, safe for you to eat.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are good gluten-free food choices?

    Some good gluten-free food choices includes beans, fresh and frozen fruits, plain vegetables, plain salad, broiled or roasted meat (beef, fish, poultry), and breads made from rice, soy, tapioca, arrowroot, or potato. Try to avoid heavily processed gluten-free foods. Meeting with a dietitian can help you determine if a gluten-free diet meets your nutritional needs.
