Lovely Grocery store easy to get in and out

Beautiful grocery store with limited, but lovely produce. Specialty items, a nice wine section and great deli counter. Salad bar could be expanded, but everything is fresh. All staff is super friendly, but some are a bit slow with others waiting in line.

The deli items are wonderful fresh eats and a nice outside area to relax and enjoy your meal solo or with friends . Also, a wonderful fresh organic place to shop vegetables, fruits, and even chips salsa, salads. Nice experience, you have to try it.

Selection is poor and prices are high. Sometimes their produce is not fresh. They seem to run the same things on special each week which isn't very helpful.

We stopped here for groceries on our way out to our rental cabin. We were impressed with the wide selection and variety of fresh produce and other fresh products. It can be pricey, but if you catch their sales or one of their buy one get one free weekends, it can be very affordable. Great quality food that you can... More

I had great hopes for this cafe only to be disappointed by the average taste of my sandwich and the cold temp. of the miso soup. I asked for it to be heated and it took them 20 minues to get it back to me. The miso soup lacked flavor even when warm.

We were looking for a smoothie place after spending the day in the Arboretum. We were not interested in a franchise shop with a sugary smoothie. Earth Fare cafe fit the bill. The cashier was lovely and warm, too.

We live in Asheville, which is a food Mecca. There's a lot of competition for our food dollar and Earth Fare wins the prize. One thing we particularly like is that they "read the labels so you don't have to". We read labels anyway and for other reasons, but it indicates their food philosophy, which is to provide only the... More

My wife and I shop daily at Earth Fare in Charlotte,NC ( Ballantyne ) We visit the Westgate Parkway location when in Asheville. However Saturday we went to the Hendersonville Road location in Asheville which could easily become the flagship store for Earth Fare . It is a beautiful store !

I shop often in Earth Fare. The food is fresh. There are many organic and gluten free products. Soup is always excellent.

This store is great. The produce, meat and fish departments always have fresh food. Tuesdays, delicious soup is always half price. There is a large variety of GF foods. I shop at Earth Fare at least once a week. There is a great cafe with fresh food all day.
