There are other options, but I like the deli. The salads are particularly good. The servers are sometimes rushed when the place is crowded. The hot/salad bar is also good, but more difficult for food allergies.

I have not eaten in the Cafe. However, I shop there regularly. There is a large variety of healthy foods. Their fish is great. Their meat is great. We have been ordering our fresh Thanksgiving turkeys for a couple of years. Some of the produce is a bit high, but most of it is organic. They have great specials.

I can understand the higher cost for certified organic food, but that ought to be somewhat offset by the buying local goal of Earth Fare. Unfortunately, premium prices seem to be the norm for all "healthy" fare stores. So, if the store is saving on shipping costs, shouldn't the price reflect that?

Always a clean, inviting environment. Lots of natural and local foods, with a convenient café with wholesome meals.

Earthfare was great when it was privately owned. But ever since they sold out to a corporation the product prices went from reasonable to ridiculous. The food quality of their store brand is absolutely awful, and the employees I've spoken with are paid a non-living wage. It is obvious that Earthfare "values" are only a front to make money as...

I shop in Earth Fare all the time. Their fish and meat department is the best In Asheville. There is a wide variety of foods and many gluten free products.

Very good for a grocery store buffet with lots of organic options. Can get crowded particularly at lunch time.

I have eaten at other Earth Fare hot bars, and the selection at this location did not disappoint. A convenient stop when I arrived in town before my hotel room was ready! Ample parking, good food selection, fast WiFi and a quick, healthy option for a meal. I arrived in time for an early lunch on a Sunday and they... More
