Gluten-Free Watercooler-Soho Gardens

Hi all!  I found yet another gluten-free discovery a few weeks back, while working the Young Designers Market in Nolita, NYC.  I had little inclination to prepare lunch for myself, since I was working from 9am-7pm.  What was I to do when I got hungry?  Working a craft show in an area you are not familiar with tends to have its downfalls for gluten-free people like myself.  My friend sent me to the deli for sandwiches, which is clearly something I cannot have.  I can't have the bread, and then I have to worry if the deli slicer is contaminated. So that eliminates that choice.  Arrgh!  I do admit my Celiac sometimes gets in my way.  So I wandered into the deli/market called Soho Gardens in Soho, NYC.  This market appears to be a small and it from the outside looks like a run down deli.  But it's actually the opposite!  Upon walking in, I saw over 5 aisles of food, fresh and packaged.  This place was loaded with yummy treats, fruits, groceries and more!  So i went through the isles, never thinking I would find gluten-free products in a commercial deli, yet I was wrong again.  To my surprise they had an array of gluten-free products including crackers, chips, candy, yogurt and more!  I was even more shocked to see Mary's Gone Gone Crackers, Rice Crackers, Asian GF crackers, GF cereals and more.  Dream come true I swear!

This is a great place for travelers passing by, shoppers or even a great place to do your grocery shopping!

So if you are ever in the Nolita/Soho, NYC area, stop on by to Soho Gardens located on the corner of Mulberry and Prince Street. (212) 941-5973
