  1. hey there – there’s a new gluten free bakery opening in San Carlos soon: http://www.zestbakery.com/.

    I’m gonna check it out when they open in the slim chance that we might be able to go there (but it’s probably not nut free).

    I’ll let you know what I find out :)

  2. Hey Alison! Had the Mariposa Multi-Grain bread for the first time this week picked up at the Ferry Building. Delicious!! It’s still soft and fresh-tasting after four days and I didn’t have to put it in the fridge. Picking up more today at the Farmer’s Market. So excited…

  3. Alison, thanks so much for making this list! I am going to add the relevant ones (have to see if Mariposa has DF options too) to our recommended dining with link and credit to you for posting. I just now found this post via an AllergySense post. I must keep up on your site better!

  4. Thanks for this summary! I didn’t realize that Mariposa was at the farmers market. I know where we are headed on Sunday. ;-). Just posted the link to this in the comments at: http://bit.ly/9unTEZ

  5. aw… good chemistry is closed. :(
