The Best Gluten free grocery stores in Wichita

I have been asked about this by several people so I thought I might share in a post.

1.  Food For Thought -
This place is by far the best. They have an amazing frozen section that has GF corn dogs, muffins, fried chicken, pies etc.  It is of course expensive but if you want a treat that no one else has, this is the place to go.

2. Green Acres- They are expanding and they already have an awesome section where they make fresh baked good. They are expensive but very good.

3. Whole Foods association- Before we moved to Wichita, my wife and I checked if there was a Whole Foods and were so excited.  They have great frozen bread.  Of course when we arrived we found out it was not the Whole Foods chain we knew.  This place is fine, just not what we expected.

4. Dillion's marketplace-  Make sure you go to the larger ones like the store on Central and Rock.  They have some better prices and a pretty okay selection.

5. Super Target-  They have a few things randomly throughout the store.  They have annie's gluten free mac and cheese for only $2.

6.  Walmart- I have been told the one on the west side has a section or something.  The East side does not.

If you know of other places, make sure you post them for us all.

  1. I don't remember the name, but the Indian marketplace near Rock and 37th has 25 lb bags of rice flour for $20. Not too shabby.

  2. Thanks for the information! I just wish I had remembered to check your site before I came back from Wichita yesterday! LOL

    Oh well, going again on Saturday so I'll be sure to check some of these out. Dillon's Marketplace is the only place I've been to so far.

  3. I've found great prices on many GF flours in local Asain markets - sweet rice flour, potato starch, white rice flour, & tapioca starch. Also they have many kinds of rice (try red or black rice - flavor!) and rice noodles. The west Kellogg Walmart does have a GF section - even have Thin Thin bars (like GF slim fast bars) that are GF. Love the large selection of GF in the Dillon's Marketplaces healthfood section, and Dillon's also labels on the shelf tags for GF items throughout the store. Also Sam's club is doing a good job of labeling for GF on many of their Maker's Mark store brands, and have a large selection of labeled GF deli meats.

    Being GF only since Oct 2009 and daughter diagnosed in Oct 2010, I've seen alot of momentum in the local GF food offerings in just this short time. Goodness knows we need economical GF food offerings!

    I agree - now we need a GF bakery in town. The Wild Thyme shop in Maize and d'Sozo on S. Seneca are two nice n' healthy home-grown cafes in Wichita where it's easy to be GF. Thanks for your blog and keep it up!

  4. I love the Indian and Asian markets as well. Besides all the flours I get lots of rice or tapioca noodles for VERY cheap!
