Not a brick-and-mortar store as far as I know, but a gf (and dairy free) dedicated bakery that sells at the Syracuse farmer’s market on Saturdays.
Her stuff is really good. I’ve never reacted. She has many kinds of bread, bagels, muffins, cookies, bread crumbs, pie crusts, etc. She has a couple recipes with gf oats but will switch them out for sorghum if requested. She takes orders in advance if you call.
There are some other great gf bakers at that farmer’s market, although I don’t know their names.

Can you give me her info, please? We may be visiting family over the summer and I am afraid of not finding anything to eat. Also, if you have any good restaurant recommendations, please tell! This will be my first trip back after diagnosis and I’m sure we can’t eat at any of the places I grew up on.

Sure! This is off the label of some bagels I have:
Gluten Free Epiphany
9125 Bass Bar Rd.
Canastota, NY 13033
She usually sells at the Saturday morning farmer’s market right in Syracuse. If you call ahead she’ll set stuff aside for you, because sometimes she sells out. The market has great produce and meat and fish (if you are early enough), and a couple other GF bakers.
I haven’t tried a lot of restaurants here. I did eat at Core, in North Syracuse, and was fine. It’s custom broth or salad bowls. Wegman’s is a wonderful grocery store which does GF sushi, if you are ok with sugar, soy, and corn. In some stores the sushi station is next to the pizza station, though. If I think of others I will let you know. I hope you enjoy your visit!

When I looked on findmeglutenfree it listed Yum Yum’s bakery as GF, I have not been but it seems worth a try.
Also I was surprised to see King David’s listed there, they are one of my favorite restaurants OF ALL TIME but so much of the food is wheat, I just assumed it would be pretty difficult not to contaminate, but…it says they can do it. It’s worth a try I think. Their stuff is really good. Like order an extra dinner to go but end up eating it on the drive home and then dreaming about it for the next three days good.

I remember King David’s being very good, but there is no way I would trust that in a million years (breaking out in DH thinking about it). It may be “gluten free” ingredients, but the odds that they actually have a safe prep area where no CC occurs is slim. My BF’s dad delivered to restaurants when I lived there & I worked in a deli. I know way too much about kitchens to eat anyplace that does not have a separate prep area and a very accommodating chef. Me not wanting to spend my vacay in the bathroom is why we haven’t been back since. Thanks for the heads up on the bakery! That and fruit may be all I eat for a week. Family kitchens are NOT safe, ad they love to eat at Luigi’s, Pastabilities, Santangelo’s…you get the idea.

Ah yeah, King David’s really is a gluten-heavy restaurant. It would be a cc risk:( I was just hopeful because of the good reviews.
I have been to Core twice and do not think I got glutened. I had salads. It’s a bit of a drive though.
That sucks that the kitchen is not safe. Can you bring a cooler and a pan for yourself? That’s what I do with family, I still get glutened though, it’s just everywhere:(

I can vouch for Yum Yum’s. It’s a gluten free bakery and cafe. They have great brick fired pizza’s and it is a 100% GF. You won’t get sick there. If you want to get your fried fix they have great chicken tenders.
Other than that everywhere else I eat I usually get sick. That includes almost every restruant ordering specifically GF.
