I look forward to seeing the Braves play at Turner Field. Not just because it is a great way to spend an afternoon/evening, but because there is a Gluten Free Food Cart. Usually, when someone who follows a gluten-free diet attends a sporting event they either have to eat before they go, or bring food with them, but not at Turner Field.
In the past, Turner's Field's gluten-free options have included hamburgers and hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, cupcakes, muffins, cookies, snack mix, popcorn, chips, and more, but this year, the choices remain just as limited as last year. Now, the only hot option is a hot dog.
Aramark handles the concession at Turner Field and they would not disclose the manufacturer of the gluten-free buns being used. Turner's gluten-free food cart can be found at section 106 and it offers:
- Hot Dog (National Deli 6/1 All Beef Hot dog + Gluten-Free Hot Dog Bun) $7.00
- Turkey Club (Turkey, bacon, Swiss, lettuce, and tomato + Gluten-Free Burger Bun) $8.00
- Chicken Caesar Hoagie (Chicken, romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, and Caesar dressing + Gluten-Free Hoagie Bun) $8.00
- Brownie/Cookie (Sweet Christine's Bakery) $3.00
- Kettle Chips $3.00
- Red Bridge Beer can also be purchased at Chop House
We went to the Braves game on Mother's Day and Giorgia Galante and I had a turkey club and a chicken Caesar hoagie for lunch. Both sandwiches had very soggy lettuce, but the gluten-free buns were nice and soft and the sandwiches were filling. From what I can tell, the gluten-free burger bun is from Pure Knead and the hoagie bun is from Sweet Christine's Bakery, but this is just a guess. I really missed noshing on a burger, or a chicken sandwich.Why is a hot dog the only hot option now?
When you go to Turner Field, do you go to the food cart? What can we as patrons due to influence the gluten-free options being offered?
