A Celebration of All Things Deliciously Gluten Free
The Gluten Free Garage (Twitter: @Glu10FreeGarage / Instagram: @GlutenFreeGarage / Facebook: Gluten Free Garage) is a pop-up farmer’s market event with a gluten-free twist that kicks of Celiac Awareness Month on May 1st at Artscape Wychwood Barns. It offers one-stop shopping for local and artisanal gluten-free food, creates awareness about this pain-in-the-gut disease, and proves that gluten-free food can be super tasty. This foodie event is built for people with celiac and gluten intolerance but everyone on the gluten-free spectrum will want to indulge.
The story behind how the Gluten Free Garage event came about is really meaningful and I want to share with you all. The event was founded by Celiac mom RonniLyn Pustil – mom of a 10-year-old daughter who was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2009. RonniLyn Pustil’s family life forever changed when her daughter Lily was diagnosed with celiac disease at age 3. To ensure that her daughter (and the rest of her family, since they made their entire house gluten free to ensure no mistakes or cross-contamination would happen at home) would have delicious food to eat, she combed the city in search of fresh gluten-free food that was made locally. Eventually, she came up with the idea for the Gluten Free Garage to share her finds with others who are gluten free and to create awareness about the disease.
