What kinds of organic, vegetarian and allergy-friendly foods are available, such as organic produce, gluten-free products, meat substitutes for vegetarians, etc?

Get to know where the local farmers markets are. You can get a lot of fresh food here in places that are the size of a warehouse. Grocery stores also tend to have a lot of fresh goods available, although it's a bit hit and miss in winter. - Mar 14, 2012
Produce is very widely available, and nothing seems to have high fructose corn syrup in it. I don't really look for any of the rest though, gluten-free, etc. But I also don't really remember seeing it in passing, either. - May 29, 2011
