Really do like the breakfast buffet and the fact that they don't stop serving at an early hour. Food is very good, always hot and fresh. Crowd can be daunting at certain times but that's a sign of good food, good value. Wish they would remodel though.

This place was recently bought by Whole Foods and you can tell! Great options for all kinds of diets and we were especially gaga over all of the vegan desserts available for purchase! Awesome grocery store for those who lean towards healthier diets such as organic, GF, vegetarian/vegan, or natural foods.

We were visiting family in Asheville for an early Thanksgiving. To avoid having them cook, we ordered a Thanksgiving meal from the Greenlife Grocery (aka Whole Foods) all the way from Boston. It was simple and easy to order. The price was very reasonable. After a day of travel, we arrived at the designated time to pick up our order.... More

This grocery store has an amazing juice bar! I love the kale lemonade and the mock chicken salad. We go back every time we are in Asheville.

We rented a house in the Asheville area and we needed to purchase some food while staying there. We were able to get fresh bread, freshly ground coffee, wine, fruits and vegetables, vegan food for those wanting it as well as meat for the meat eaters in the group. If I lived in the area, I would frequent this store.
