We are always on a mission to find a place to hangout, grab a quick hearty and gluten-free bite to eat. That is why we were so excited to find Luci’s Healthy Marketplace; a hip, safe haven from the daily grind that combines the best of both worlds, a grocery and cafe shop. Located at the corner of Bethany Home and 16th Street; Luci’s Healthy Marketplace shelves features some of the best organic and natural products as well as a full kitchen serving up Bloggin’ Good Food!
After a wonderful Saturday morning we headed out to the local Phoenix library – Mesquite branch to grab some free culture passes. While at the library we stopped in to story time with baby Evangeline. Today was T for Trains! Choo Choo!
After leaving the library our plan was to head downtown to grab a bite to eat at the Phoenix Market, check out a farmers market or something else we happened upon. Saturday’s are more often than not our exploration days. Phoenix is so vast I feel like there is always something new and wonderful to discover.
So as we started driving south on the 51 but we didn’t make it far. Wendy shouted out BETHANY HOME! (road that is) She remembered that Luci’s a few blocks down has the most amazing Gluten-Free muffins there and she obviously had a craving. When you have a wife that’s feeding a baby every 2-3 hours….you happily oblige those cravings.
I promptly took the exit and the photo’s below show the gluten-free goodness we found.
We ordered the Wild Salmon on Gluten-Free Bread and shared the sandwich. The GF muffin filled up Wendy and The Wild Salmon was more than enough to share. Sharing also helps save on the budget while still being able to grub on some good eats.
Next time you are driving on the 51 near Bethany Home drive a few blocks down and stop into Luci’s. You will thank us. In addition to yummy eats they have a full coffee bar and a healthy market (of course) chock full of Gluten-free goodies.
