Gluten Free Philly News & Notes

With the summer upon us, the theme this past week at Gluten Free Philly was travel. On Sunday, I wrote about my family's holiday weekend in the Washington, D.C. area, highlighting some great gluten-free restaurant finds. On Tuesday, I mentioned the new gluten-free food options, like pizza and wraps, that are available at Hersheypark this season. There are also a number of nearby eateries just outside the park that offer guests gluten-free menus.

Gluten-free pizza and spaghetti are now on the menu at Floga Bistro in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, the latest addition to the restaurant roll.

Michael Klein at the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that Seasons 52 Fresh Grill, which offers a gluten-free menu, will be opening a second area location - in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania - in Spring 2010.

After some delays, Elevation Burger has finally opened its first area location in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania. According to the company's website, two more Philadelphia-area spots are planned for later this summer. Rodger at the Triumph Dining blog liked the burger and fries when he checked out Elevation Burger in Virginia.

The Whole Foods Market on South Street in Philadelphia is hosting a gluten-free vendor fair on Saturday, July 11 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event will feature such companies as Froose, Cookies For Me, Larabar and Sorella Bakery. The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness will also be on hand to provide information. Gluten Free Philly readers can get a coupon for $2 off a purchase of $20 or more at the fair by asking for Brett Mapp, the store's Community Liaison.

On Monday, I'll be announcing another cool Goodies Giveaway. There will be a Twitter-only giveaway sometime next week as part of that, with that winner being the first person that can correctly answer a question that I tweet. So if you want to participate that way (or even if you don't!), be sure to follow Gluten Free Philly on Twitter @gfphilly. Drop me a line at gfphilly[at]gmail[dot]com with tips on upcoming events, new products and restaurant menu additions.

Have a great weekend!
