Petunia's GF Pastries in Portland Whole Foods

Good news!  There are now more gluten-free options in select Portland Whole Foods.  Petunia's Pies and Pastries will be available in the Pearl, Hollywood, Fremont and Laurelhurst locations. 

I went to visit the Petunia's booth at the PSU Farmers Market yesterday and picked up a slice of the Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap crust.  This is a gluten-free and vegan dessert like almost all of Petunia's offerings.  I loved the crust, and the "cheese" portion was nice and pumpkiny.  This one was a little on the sweet side for me, but I was not disappointed as far as flavor went.  Petunia's never ceases to surprise me with what can be created without dairy, eggs, or wheat.  Check out my other review of Petunia's here.

I'm really excited to be able to get some beautiful gluten-free desserts right in my local Whole Foods!

Very cool! I actually bought some Petunia's cup cakes for my wife at the Portland Farmer's Market a few weeks ago. They are pretty tasty.

Yep - pretty tasty! I'm glad other people are trying them. Petunia's is just starting out but it looks like the word is getting around fast!
