Abe's Market Loves Their Celiac and Gluten Free Customers!


If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me profess my love for Abe's Market:
And apparently they love me back:
No, seriously, I want to work there.
They are an online retailer that sells natural products. Everything from food, fashion, cleaning products,  home decorating, adorable baby stuff and pets. They are like the Amazon.com of green living. When they send out their weekly newsletters, I want to buy everything they feature. The beautiful pictures, drool-worthy recipes, and overall warm and cozy feeling of living happily and healthily draw me in. Not to mention they have a giant selection of gluten free products.


With May being a Celiac Awareness Month, they are celebrating Celiacs and all their gluten free glory. They know gluten free foods and products can be pricey and from now until May 12th, they are offering up to 50% off some of their best gluten free selling products.

Abe's Market also has a green living and environmental blog which has gluten free recipes such as this one for Gluten Free Mocha Brownies.
