Good day beautiful people! I am happy say in a few hours, 6 hours to exact, that Earth Fare at Emory Point will officially be open. I, being not so familiar with store, was excited to be invited to a preview tour of their new location.
We were given a great deal of information and samples along the way. Here are your Cliff notes. (quiz to follow)
•Earth Fare was founded in 1975 in Asheville, North Carolina. It is the authentic specialty organic and healthy grocery store. Emory Point is Earth Fare’s 37th store.
•Earth Fare has the highest standards for what goes on their shelves. Which means: No High-Fructose Corn Syrup, No artificial fats or artificial trans fats, No artificial colors, No artificial flavors, No artificial preservatives, No artificial sweeteners, No antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones in their fresh meat and dairy, and No bleached or bromated flour.
This makes me happy! Knowing that the labels have been checked before getting to the shelves made me a fan. I am a label reader and I get tired of reading artificial this, artificial that, high fructose corn syrup! Make it go away! Bravo Earth Fare for having such high standards! Bravo!
• Earth Fare support locally grown and produced products. Look for the red signage that read Local to find Georgia grown products. Local supplies include Spingler Mountain Farm Chicken, Terrapin Beer Company, Lettuce Buy Local salad mixes, and Tessamae’s All Natural Dressings.
•Earth Fare carries a nice variety of Health and Wellness products. Including those that are organic, vegan, and cruelty free.
•Earth Fare will steam your seafood for free! Nice!
•Earth Fare has a very nice selection of bulk products that include nuts, beans, various healthy snacks. I tried the tried the chocolate covered ginger. So good!
•Lunch and dinner will be a breeze with their grab-and -go meals. Look out for those daily specials! They are pretty awesome!
