Located in the Mill Creek Town Center, just off the Bothell-Everett Highway

Hours: 7 am to 11 pm
This is probably my favorite place to go because they have a great selection. The gluten free items are usually well marked and if you go to customer service you can get a list of all of the gluten free items in their store and which aisle you can find them on. Their product list is expanding every week so this list may not be exhaustive but it will give you a pretty good idea if this is worth a trip for you. They also have a wide variety of organic produce.
What kinds of things do they have? (These are some highlights)
GF flours and mixes such as Bob's Red Mill (lots of various kinds), Namaste, Chebe, Gifts of Nature, and more.
Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (GFCFSF)
So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt (plain flavor only),
So Delicious Coconut Milk, Coffee Creamer, and "ice cream"
Luna and Larry's Coconut Bliss "ice cream"
Frozen GF products such as Kinnikinnick's pizza crusts, bagels, breads, cinnamon rolls, doughnuts, and more!
Udi's Bread and Muffins
Namaste pastas- Say Cheeze, Taco Shells
cereals, rice and hemp milk
There are many, many foods that are naturally gluten free (fruits, veggies, fresh meat, eggs)
They also have bulk honey and agave nectar and you can get fresh ground peanut and almond butter.

This is a newer shop located in Mill Creek Town Center (just around the corner from Central Market). They specialize in food for diabetics and gluten free items. The owners are extremely knowledgeable about their inventory and very helpful. They have some products I have not seen anywhere else.
To find a store/more information you can click on the link above.
(I am most familiar with the Redmond location but there is also one in Bellevue and Seattle).
I don't know about the other stores, but the Redmond location now has a dedicated GF section. You can also find other GF products throughout the store, but a majority of it is now in one place, making shopping much easier and much faster than it used to be!
My favorites from here:
So delicious Coconut Milk (yep, "milk" in a carton- next to the refrigerated soy milk) 3 flavors.
So delicious Coconut Milk yogurts in a variety of flavors.
Andean Dream Quinoa Pasta
Fresh ground nut butters
Udi's bread, Pizza crusts
They also have nitrate free deli meats, pepperoni, and bacon
Multiple locations- go to their website to find the closest location to you.
Frequently if I can't find something at Whole Foods I will look for it here.
Applegate Farms Salami, pepperoni, and other lunch meats
GF and nitrate free Bacon
So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt (various flavors)

These guys make ready made meals. They have a gluten free menu, some items that are also dairy free. Unfortunately, they do not cook a lot of items that are also soy free. But, they do have a retail section with some items that fit the bill. They are right across from Whole Foods (in the same plaza as Pomegranate). They carry Daiya cheese, Bavaria Mills Muffins, Udi's bread (this stuff tastes like real wheat bread!), muffins, pizza crust, and more.
For Meats, My favorite place to go is Bill the Butcher in Woodinville!
12637 Northeast Woodinville Drive
Woodinville, WA 98072
As of right now, there are actually 3 locations- Woodinville, Redmond, and Seattle. I am sure there could be more coming soon as this Butcher shop's popularity is rapidly expanding.
Tell them you are gluten free. They specialize in organic, grass fed meats. Most of his meats are not cured with milk products and do not contain gluten. They've got the best bacon in town. We go through about a pound or so a week with the 2 boys. And, his staff doesn't mind that my son dances to the music they play in their shop :-) (To all vegans and vegetarians, sorry about this particular link and I hope it does not offend you. I myself have meat guilt issues, but if I/we are going to eat it I feel better about getting my meat this way than any other).

I haven’t been here yet, although it is on my list of places to go. She has a good selection and is constantly expanding her inventory based on customer requests. Her goal is to be a one stop gluten free shop.
21705 66th Ave W Mountlake Ter, WA 98043
New Website! They are getting more products all the time. They have a good selection of GFCF flours and products. Call ahead for hours- they are closed on Sundays.
2804 Grand Avenue
Everett, WA 98201
This place is so cool. They actually sell some GFCFSF baked goods and have a little smoothie shop in the back. It's been a while since I have been here, but it has left a lasting impression and an ideal of what a GF co-op really should be:-)
This is the best (and cheapest) place to buy dried fruit and nuts. Check labels on the nut products as some of the roasted varieties can have soy in them. Do read labels carefully and purchase only what you are comfortable with as some items are processed on the same lines as wheat or milk products or not in dedicated facilities. If you are gluten free, stay away from the TJ's brand of rice milk. It does not state on the label but is processed with barley- it is actually the same product as Rice Dream brand rice milk (which contains gluten too).
Multiple locations. I have only visited the one in Kirkland. Here is it's location:
11306 NE 124th St.
Kirkland, WA 98034
They have a decent selection of reasonably priced GFCF items- including Ener-G foods, Chebe, Namaste, yoga chips (can you say yum?) Kinnikinnick, Udi's and more. The boys and I are addicted to the Yogi Chips they carry (BBQ and original)! They are frequently getting new items in so if you have a request let them know! They're also a good place to pick up some supplements!
Of course you can't forget Pike Place! Besides being a hip place in Seattle to hang out and people watch you can find all kinds of great GFCFSF ingredients for your creations. Honey of all flavors, jams, jellies, cooking oils, fresh fruits, veggies, seafood. You may even find some GFCF baked goods (I'm not sure if any are soy free).
Okay, I realize this isn't a place to buy supplies to make your own items, but you can buy loaves of bread here so this is why I have included it on the list. At some point I will start a tab of places to eat out. If you are like me, treking to the city is an event and you might as well make a day of it and make a few stops and sit down, relax, and have a GF treat.I can describe this place in one word- yum! Located in the Fremont district in Seattle this is the place to go if you are looking for a sweet GFCF treat! What I love is that everything has the ingredients listed next to it so there is no guesswork in getting something you can eat. While you are in Fremont, trek a few blocks up and say hello to the troll!
Horray for the vegan store! Vegans rock, and not so secretly I frequently wish to be one. This shop is located in the U-district and is really a cute place. It is a small shop but they have some of GFCF stuff I haven't seen elsewhere and some of it is SF. As always, you should read labels to be sure the products fit your needs. My favorite finds from here are a product called "Parma" which is a mock Parmesan cheese made from walnuts, and Daiya cheese- in my opinion this is hands down the best GFCFSF cheese on the market- tastes almost spot on and gets melty when you heat it up. They also carry B Fresh gum, which I have yet to find in any other shop. They will do their best to order any GF vegan requests you have too.
I am sure there are more shops popping up and I will add to them as I find them. If there is a place you think I should add to this list, feel free to email me with the information.

I can't wait to go here someday. I have heard fabulous things about this place! It looks like they have a great selection and they are a family owned business! Yay for supporting our local economy :-) You can order from him online, too!

I have heard good things about this place and I see they carry Boar's Head Deli Meats, which are GF, high quality, and nitrate free.
This is by no means a complete list but it is a few of the best stocked places I have found around here. I will post more shops as I find them and have time to do so. When we first started this diet it felt like we had to go to 3-4 stores to find what we needed and I still had to order a good portion of products online. As GFCF has become more popular I have been able to find most of what I need locally.
If you have specific questions about things or places to add to this list you can always email me (or check it out for yourself)! This is a work in progress. Since I started this blog, at least a half a dozen more shops have opened up. I have not been to every place on this list, but I do have some favorite places listed here.
