  1. Try Mill Valley Market. They have a small section for baked goods with low carb goods baked in the area.

    1. Not quite sure if they have what you are looking for, but Rustic Bakery has a few locations in Marin.

      1. The dietitian suggested sugar-free or lo-sugar apple tarts, so I'll concentrate on those. No luck so far.

        1. re: Sarah

          How about this place - limited hours, but their claim is "We use only whole-grain flour, primarily fruit for sweetening...."

          1. re: foodeye

            Even things that are sweetened with fruit have sugar in them, as fruits are full of sugar, not the processed kind, but fructose, which is still a sugar.

        2. Have you checked your local chain supermarkets? In Los Angeles, Ralphs (Kroger) and Albertson's have a good selection, while Von's (Safeway) has none.
