VineMarket.com offers vegan, gluten-free and organic groceries

Quidsi, Inc. unveiled VineMarket.com, a newly revamped grocery website dedicated to natural living that offers thousands of the finest natural and organic foods, from snacks and beverages to pantry staples and quick meals. VineMarket.com also features a Special Diets Filter, a drop-down menu allowing users to sort and shop for products that are free of specific ingredients or allergens.
With just one click on VineMarket.com customers can use the Special Diets Filter to easily shop peanut free, dairy free, tree nut free, soy free, gluten free, kosher, vegan, and organic food. Formerly Vine.com, the newly redesigned website continues to offer a wide selection of natural and organic grocery products and household items and is now the only site to allow shoppers to filter such a large breadth of natural and organic foods by dietary preference and allergens. In addition to curating lists of products free of major allergens, VineMarket.com also identifies items that are made with customer-preferred ingredients for a highly personalized shopping experience.
"The idea for VineMarket.com was inspired by two people on our team, Rachel and Melanie, who have food allergies and wanted an easier, less complicated way to shop for groceries that meet their requirements," said David Zhang, Vice President of Retail at Quidsi and head of VineMarket.com. "Rachel and Melanie are not alone. According to FARE, the organization forFood Allergy Research & Education, about 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies. We know how difficult and time consuming it can be to sort through grocery options and read long ingredient labels, and hope that our work on VineMarket.com will help make it easier to shop for natural and organic products while adhering to the dietary needs of everyone in the house."
All foods and products on VineMarket.com have been chosen to meet 'The VineMarket Standard,' a set of guidelines created by the site to help customers shop for products that meet our natural or organic criteria or that we believe can help customers reduce their impact on the environment. VineMarket.com food, drinks and nutritional supplements are also free of a long list ofBanned Ingredients, including high fructose corn syrups, bleached or bromated flour, artificial fats, trans fats, artificial colors, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners and preservatives. More than 20 chemicals, heavy metals, animal byproducts, phthalates and parabens are also banned from personal care, cleaning, laundry and cosmetic items carried on the site. 
VineMarket.com customers can also look forward to a shared shopping cart with Diapers.com, Soap.com and Wag.com, as well as fast and free 1-2 day shipping on orders of $49 or more and 24/7 customer care.
