When it comes to food, gluten free is the new black. Whether you – or someone you know – has Celiac disease, or you’re just curious about the benefits of giving up gluten, lots of people are taking a walk on the wheat-free side. If you’re one of them, we have the scoop on what to do in Toronto to find the city’s best gluten-free fare.
Gluten Free Garage: The Sequel, returns to Toronto on April 28, 2013 from 10:00am – 4:00pm. You’ll find it in the Covered Street Barn at Artscape Wychwood Barns, at 601 Christie Street just south of St. Clair Avenue. This pop-up marketplace will be bringing together over 50 vendors to serve up fabulous gluten-free offerings. You’ll find sweets, savoury items, and even skincare. Plus there will be food trucks (including Toronto’s own gluten-free meals on wheels, The Gourmet B1tches) and guest speakers. It’s a hip twist on the farmers’ market, where everything is gluten-free, to kick off Celiac Awareness Month. No matter your reasons for giving up gluten, the Gluten Free Garage offers one-stop shopping and an opportunity to discover more about happy, healthy gluten-free living.
If you add the Gluten Free Garage to your list of what to do in Toronto, you’ll have a chance to discover local merchants, bakeries and restaurants that cater to your gluten-free needs. You’ll try and buy gluten-free food and lifestyle products, and learn more about Celiac disease, gluten intolerance and the gluten-free diet. You’ll hear knowledgeable guest speakers, meet local health experts and find out about services to make gluten-free living easier. And, of course, there will be coupons and samples to take home with you at the end of the day.
Admission is $10, and kids 12 and under get in for free, so you can bring the whole gluten-free family. For more information, check out their website below.
