Every week during the Indy Winter Farmers Market season, we’ll be profiling one of our local vendors. You can find the full list of IWFM vendors and past profiles here.
Gluten Free Creations Inc, 1st IWFM season
Owner and creator of Gluten Free Creations Inc, Lydia Armstrong believes that everybody should be able to enjoy fresh, delicious backed goods and snacks, even those with gluten allergies. Gluten Free Creations Inc is a home-based vendor business and sells at local farmers markets. All of her gluten free yummies are prepared in a gluten free environment.
What do you love most about the IWFM? I enjoy the people who come to the market. It’s been fun meeting new people and sharing stories with one another. With it hard finding fresh, gluten free baked goods and snacks, I’m glad we are able to provide them to our market patrons.
What is your most popular item? Gluten Free Pecan Tartlets and Lemon Drop Brownies!
What is something people don’t know about you? I’m a classically trained singer and sing in various local groups, churches, etc. I also produced and wrote my own Christian album project “Rooted in Faith” in 2001.
What’s your favorite local restaurant? It’s challenging to order things gluten free in a restaurant without the high risk of cross contamination; however, I like going to Monical’s Pizza because they prepare their GF pizza in a separate area and oven. It’s perfect every time!
What is your favorite thing to do downtown? I enjoy walking along the canal.
