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.

I am local to the area and keep trying to like this store, but every time I go, I find another reason to be disappointed.

Several trips to Greenlife have cemented my overall opinion that it is being taken off my list of places to get fresh, unusual, and organic foods. My last trip resulted in nearly spoiled fresh lamb. Stale cookies have been a consistent finding. Moreover, the places is just not quite clean when you look close. They certainly have their devotees who... More

After being use to a larger Whole Foods, a little disappointed. Very small and crowded, parking needs work to.
