About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Enjoy :)

Real Food Market - Review of Shopping Experience

Last week I discovered a new on line store in the St. John's area - Real Food Market. I was excited because they offered gluten free options, as well as organic foods and personal care items.

So how does it work? Well, you browse the site, pick the items you want, checkout with Paypal, Visa or Mastercard, and either pick up your items at their warehouse on Friday 2-6pm or get it delivered to your house or work. Delivery days depends on your postal code. They also have a $10 off your first purchase if you "like" them on Facebook.

For my order I purchased some organic chickpeas (Eden) which were $2.46 a can (about 60 cents cheaper than the grocery store), organic corn kernels (again cheaper than the grocery store), organic gluten free pasta, gluten free ice cream cones (these were awesome), organic oranges, gluten free English muffins, and an ice cream sandwich cookie (I wrote a post about that here).

So, Friday after work, I drove to their warehouse - it's just behind the Needs on Logy Bay Road and everything was boxed up and ready to go. It was such an easy process, no fighting crowds on a Friday afternoon at the grocery store, and they have a great selection of organic fruits and vegetables (both fresh and frozen) which is awesome for me!

They have specials each week, and you can choose to order their Fruit and Veggie basket if you want. You order weekly, and the items are posted on Sunday. Keep checking back because they seem to be adding new products!

On a final note - if you are a GF person, don't limit yourself to just the GF category as there are products like dairy, fruits and veggies etc. that are naturally Gluten free :)
