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

Some supermarkets (especially Spinney's) will have a choice that, while limited, covers most of these bases. Others may have things you wouldn't imagine - the small Abela chain seems to stock more oddities than you might think, for example. - Aug 9, 2011
Limited. Not a lot of diet foods. Lots of Indian subcontinent and Arabic food. Western food for a price. - Jul 17, 2011
Stores like Abela and Spinneys stock a small supply of "special diets" foods, but people on special dietary needs would probably struggle here. - Nov 7, 2010
