A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Gluten Free Garage with my boyfriend and a good friend from NYC. The Gluten Free Garage is Toronto’s original pop-up marketplace of all things deliciously gluten free. Jordyn Taylor, from NYC (who works for the New York Observer) snapped photos, while we spoke with vendors and sampled delicious food.
The Gluten Free Garage took place Sunday Nov. 17 at Artscape Wychwood Barns; it was founder, RonniLyn Pustil’s, third time running it.
I have worked at various gluten free shows, including the Gluten Free Garage last June, however I have never walked around as press, or as a customer. I got to taste lots of products and I am excited to share some of my favourite finds that I tried on that Sunday afternoon.
The colourful smokestack at Wychwood Barns
Hero Burger food truck (with only gluten free options) outside of the entrance.
A bird’s eye view, inside Wychwood.
Bunner’s Vegan and Gluten-Free Bake Shop. I didn’t try anything this visit, but last time I tried their red-velvet cupcake.
No. 7 Mexican Hot Sauce. This hot sauce was HOT! Raw, vegan, preservative-free and gluten free. Hand jarred and packaged in Toronto.
Tori’s Bakeshop. Gluten free donuts and cookies. Don’t they look beautiful?!
Tori’s Bakeshop ba”con”. Hickory smoked coconut flakes that resemble the smokey taste of bacon. Very yummy!
Organic Works – a hearty gluten free bread that is flavourful and moist. Stay tuned for a delicious review in the next few days.
Dendy & Co – Polenta Cookies and Crisps. I love their cookies, especially the Chocolate & Vanilla. They have a bit of a grainy taste to them and a very interesting texture.
Jamie’s Cracked Corn – amazing kettle corn! It was so crunchy, sweet and salty. Very addicting.
We ended off the afternoon with a warm cup of fresh pressed apple cider. It was delicious.
Bye Gluten Free Garage! Until next time!
