San Diego Food Stores
Most grocery stores in San Diego now sell many gluten free products. Look for a special gluten-free section, in the freezer section, and/or GF items scattered throughout the sections of the store. Some stores provide a GF product list online.
If you are new to shopping gluten-free, remember that the dairy, meat, and produce sections are full of nearly all gluten-free products.
The following are a few of the unusual shopping opportunities.
