OCT 9 Walk Now for Autism!

Our store is hosting a walking team for Walk Now For Autism Speaks in West Sacramento, on October 9, 2011.

Gluten Free Specialty Market is not just a place to go to buy your gluten free groceries. Our staff is a team and our repeat customers are our family. We support everyone through what can be a difficult adjustment to starting and maintaining a gluten free diet. A large portion of the store is also dairy free, and thus an assortment of options are available for parents with children who are on the gluten free, casein free diet. We offer personalized attention during weekly store tours, offer educational classes, and have recipes and handouts for those on the go.

Please support a good cause, and join our walking team.  All our team members will receive a team t-shirt, and treats from our team sponsors: Zico Coconut Water and Zing Protein Bars. We will be gathering at 9am at Raley Field- specific location for our team to be announced.

There is no fee to join the team or to walk for the event.  Simply sign up on our team page:
