Ah, gluten. Scourge of coeliacs, this humble wheat protein has been making life difficult for as long as we've been eating sliced bread. But fortunately for all the folks out there with gluten intolerances, VEND Marketplace in Virginia will be a gluten-free zone for two days — again.

After a first run back in February, this Gluten-Free Festival returns from 8am–2pm on both Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28. On the menu: mobile food vendors setting up their stalls and rolling in their trucks to sling tasty treats without a single bit of wheat, rye or barley in sight.

At the debut fest, SoCal Tacos,  The Dagwood Dog Guy, King of the Wings and Big J Woodfired Pizza were among the eateries making an appearance, alongside OMG Donuts, Roll It Ice Cream, Golden Churros and Mama Mac's Macarons — and others.

There'll also be a number of stalls selling a variety of gluten-free products to take home, so you can stock your pantry as well.

The dog-friendly event will let you take advantage of VEND's usual 130-plus small businesses, too, for a stint of shopping with your gluten-free eats.

Entry is free, but reserving a spot online is recommended.
