We are making this Thanksgiving season easy for those who want an absolute yummy gluten free pie! Tommy from Tommy's Pizza has created the most mouth watering buttery tasting apple and pumkin pies. He brought a sample in last week and I did not want to share. He will have 9" apple and pumkin pies ready for pick up on Tuesday morning. They are $13.97 and will sale fast so call to reserve one. He is making 5 apple and 5 pumpkin. So far an apple has already been claimed.
We will also have Grainless Bakers chocolate and pumpkin pies in our freezer section as well as mini cheesecakes ready to defrost and enjoy.

New Market place!

As some of you know we were in the works to open a cafe in the space adjacent to the market. After lots of prayer and hard work on the space to get it ready to go, we have had to make a tough decision. We are not going to be opening the cafe. During the past month it became apparent to us that we are here for you to offer the best options in gluten free, dairy free, egg free and other allergen free options through our market. As wonderful as the cafe would have been for all of us it was taking away from our original concept.

We are back on track and bringing in new and exciting products! We have used this time to remodel our original space and are planning the move for this coming weekend November 20th. So if anyone feels the urge to stop in and help will are starting at 3:30pm and will be serving some yummy Boylan sodas!!

Thanks for all your understanding and patience with us during our first few months in business!

Kids with Food Allergies Holiday Survival Tips

Thanksgiving Survival Tips
 Holidays on an Elimination DietThanksgiving is a holiday in the United States notable for overindulging on a large spread of traditionally prepared foods, many of which are laced with wheat, eggs, milk and other allergenic ingredients. A perfect holiday for many Americans includes eating a butter-basted turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, traditional bread stuffing and Grandma’s pumpkin pie - followed by leaving the table stuffed, loosening one’s belt, and then falling asleep in front of a football game on the TV.

Holidays like Thanksgiving that revolve around food can truly be challenges for families raising children with food allergies. The traditional meal for your family can present numerous allergy risks -- and the risks can be even greater if you are not preparing the meal yourself but relying on someone else to cook the meal. Is there any way around the stress and pressure of a holiday known for allergen-laden foods? Or can the foods be made safe for your food-allergic kids?

Additional Tips for Surviving the Holiday Season

Download KFA's free PDF booklet, Celebrating Thanksgiving with Food Allergies to find 12 food-free Thanksgiving craft and activities, strategies for making dinner and school safe and more!

There are different approaches to this challenge, including:

  • Preparing the entire meal yourself at your home using safe ingredients.
  • Helping family prepare the meal at their homes using safe ingredients.
  • Preparing a safe meal for your child while letting the rest of your family enjoy their traditional favorites.
Your challenge is to decide what is right for your family and safe for your child.

Another approach to enjoying the holiday is to take the emphasis off food, and focus on other safe activities your whole family can enjoy together.

Don't be afraid to try new things with your family. Play your own football game. Volunteer to serve a meal at a homeless shelter (if your kids are old enough not to eat the food, of course!). Visit a state park. Take a walk in the woods. Play a board game, or start making some Christmas presents together.

Whatever you do - eat until you can't move, or stay away from the typical food altogether, or somewhere in between - have a happy Thanksgiving!
