I was wandering around Market Basket and something struck me. MB has a decent variety of gluten free stuff; however, unlike most other stores it is completely interspersed among all of the other food. Market Basket does not have a separate specialty section for GF products.

This had been producing interesting mixed feelings in me that I hadn’t noticed until I thought about it. By mingling the products together, they are saying “We don’t consider you different or abnormal. Your food needs are just as normal as everybody else’s.” It’s actually somewhat comforting.

On the other hand, it makes it a bit more difficult to find things. I’ll have to consider more about whether I like convenience or getting treated like a normal person better.
