Why a Gluten Free Market?

For many, eating gluten-free is not a choice rather it is the only medicine for good health for those with Celiac autoimmune disease (, gluten intolerance or sensitivity. For others, avoiding gluten is a preference and integral to personal wellness. Whatever the reason, gluten-free foods don’t have to be sad and tasteless. Recently featured as a “Spring Pick” on NY1’s weekend market segment, The Gluten Free EatUP! was co-founded by Deb Goldstein of Levine's General Store ( and Antonio Limuaco of Kimcheelicious, to broaden access to some of the most passionate gluten-free makers and the tastiest products out there, in a fun and casual setting. Our goal is to provide a platform and culture of sharing for a community of merchants, customers and friends - while dispelling some of the myths about being gluten free, along the way - to Meet. Eat. Be Free
