Allington Pharmacy is a retail pharmacy with a focus on gluten-free products, baby & child care and diabetes care. It’s based at the Canewood Business Centre in St.Michael. They are open on Sunday mornings too which is handy when you want to do some Sunday afternoon gluten free baking! Check their Facebook page for offers too. The lovely Greigarious Gluten Free present educational sessions occasionally too so keep an eye out for future events (although I will share on my Facebook page too).
Allington Pharmacy is located in the Canewood Industrial Park.
Coming from Warrens or from Hothersal Turning: make your way to Canewood and turn onto the road that takes you to Dwellings & Liliplum.
After you turn onto the road to Canewood Industrial Park, you will see Frank B. Armstrong on your right, followed by the Mill (restaurant next to the old mill) and Do It Best on your left.
Allington Pharmacy is loacted in the Canewood Business Centre which is the blue building on the right (in the corner) after Do It Best.
It is great to see local gluten free mixes on offer in the supermarkets here and a great company are Ligons. They supply ready made gluten free mixes to all the Super Centre supermarkets in Barbados. The mixes look delicious and as well as being gluten free are also egg and dairy free so are great for all allergies. There are currently three mixes available being a muffin, cookie and cassava pone mix. Easy to make too which is always an added bonus!
So keep it local, get yourself some mixes and get baking.!
This lovely delicatessen is situated in the Lime Grove Centre which is in Holetown and home to all the upmarket shops. This gorgeous place to eat sits in amongst them and holds it own. As well as offering gluten free delights, I noticed that they also sell gluten free bread and muffins amongst the chiller section with no cross contamination!
They have rave reviews from Trip Advisor and is an excellent venue to enjoy fun, fresh food at a decent price.

Although this may look like a chemist from the front, I urge you to go inside as these shops have a great range of gluten free flours. They stock most of Bobs Red Mill Flours and also a range of gluten free crackers, cereal and pasta.

The main branch in Bridgetown is a grocery store, bookstore and café in one. It’s tucked away on the 2nd floor of the Lantern Mall in Hastings (across from KFC). This is a health food shop that also has a snack bar serving Vegan and Gluten Free cakes in the cafe. The store stocks a great range of gluten free flours and products as well as natural beauty supplies. It also has a small bookstore within it. There is also one in the Lanterns shopping mall in Hastings, Christchurch but they only sell the shakes and cakes, not hot food.
