Gluten-Free Pop-Up Market
Virginia's dog-friendly marketplace is dedicating a spring Saturday to gluten-free foods.
September 13, 2023
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 a day.
At the Gluten-Free Pop-Up Market from 10am–3pm on Saturday, November 11 mobile food vendors will set up their stalls and roll in their trucks to sling tasty treats without a single bit of wheat, rye or barley in sight.
At earlier events, 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. The November timing? Yes, that's perfect for Christmas shopping.
