I just moved back to Michigan after being gone for almost 12 years..I have no idea where to find the foods we need for my 4 year gf little girl...Udis bread,Glutinos crackers ect...That kind of stuff..We are looking in the Grand Rapids,Muskegon and Big Rapids area..I live in Newaygo County so either way going is the same...Thanks so much...
Welcome back! :) I live on the other side of the state, so I can't be too specific with specialty stores that way, but I must say that the selection at Kroger and Meijer has GREATLY improved just in the last few years! I can't remember if there is a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's that way or not. I really have been pleasantly surprised with Meijer, that's where we get most of our goodies! Good luck! :)
Thanks..Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are about a 3 hour drive down by Ann Arbor..I don't know why they won't put one in the Grand Rapids area..It is big enough and the need is tremendous:( No Krogers here either..I love Krogers..that is where I bought alot of her stuff down south..But we do have plenty of Meijers..Will go check them out..Have one every which way I look:)) Thanks for responding....I am happy to be home:))
I've heard the reason there isn't a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in Grand Rapids is because they are off the I-94 corridor from Chicago. Definitely agree they would be welcomed.
Have you tried any of the local natural markets? I know there is a small one in Holland where my parents get raw honey. There is also an Apple Valley Natural Foods in Kentwood.
I also just heard about a Gluten Free Food Fair in Lansing in October. Here's the Facebook page about it: https://www.facebook.com/MichiganCapitalCeliacDHGroup
Hope this helps!
