Nevada City, CA — In a move co-sponsored by the Really REAL Friends of Nevada City and the Nevada County Republican Party, the quaint Sierra foothills community of Nevada City will host the nation’s first and only 100% Gluten-only marketplace starting on July 11th. Although the anti-gluten-free movement has been gathering steam over the past couple of years, many gluten intolerant believers and the 5 people who actually have celiac disease are concerned about this aggressive and reactionary move by local conservatives.
“I’ve been gluten-intolerant for almost 6 years,” claimed local anti-vaccine advocate Lisa Fellows of Nevada City. “I can’t be around anything gluten within a few hundred yards. It’s the gluten dust from baked goods that gets my morgellons disease acting up. I’m really worried that the high concentrations of gluten on Broad and Commercial Streets will ‘gluten-pollute’ the air. I might actually have to go to Grass Valley for the day. Or longer.”
The market will feature booths with only high-gluten content foods.
“The idea is to take back our basic foods,” said Nevada County Republican chairwoman Deborah Wilder. “We’ve been bullied by the Progressive ‘alternative’ crowd for too long. These forces are starving us of the liberty to eat whatever we want, when we want it. This is a strike to restore sanity to our food system, and we believe Nevada City is the first place to launch such a movement.”
According to organizers, there is a great deal of interest in the gluten-only market, mostly from out of the area and from Penn Valley,CA. They were hoping to attract more local businesses, but so far none have come forward to take part.
