I dropped by Whole Foods Chelsea yesterday and decided to share notes on a couple of products there.

The store remains a reliable source of one of my favorite breads: Genuine Bavarian Gluten-Free Whole Grain Bread. It's in the "normal" unrefrigerated bread section, on a shelf close to the floor, with the rest of the Genuine Bavarian product line (which is not gf). Insider tip: Make sure it's rung up accurately at the register! Also: Separate the slices with a knife and toast 'em!

I also spotted one bottle of Toleration ale for $6.99--significantly less than the price at Ninth Avenue Vintner's. It was on the non-refrigerated shelves, across from the stand where the six-packs are kept.

Two other gf beers were in stock, in the six-pack section: Bard's Tale and New Grist. No sign of Ramapo Valley and Redbridge.

Oddly enough, even here in the Bay Area, the only gluten-free bread Whole Foods seems to carry is refrigerated and is mostly Food for Life brand which has its uses but is really not satisfying in the same way as regular bread. I haven't even seen Ener-G or any of those more mainstrema GF brands there. Hm...
