CEDAR RAPIDS — A new gluten free vendor will soon start selling baked goods at the NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids.
Carolyn Berger is the owner of “OMG It’s Gluten Free”, which is slated to open August 30th.
Berger was diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity three years ago, and her son has celiac disease. The diagnosis forced their family to change their eating habits, as well as forced Berger to change dessert recipes to not include gluten.
Now Berger wants to sell her gluten free treats.
”I’m really, really excited to offer this because I feel like it’s something the city needs to be able to go out and feel rest assured that somebody else understands the importance of not contaminating food with flours,” said Berger.
Berger’s store will be open for only three Saturdays, on August 30th, September 6th and September 13th.
