I have been to both Earth Fares in Asheville. I have also been to the one in Greenville SC (an hour away). All three are great grocery stores. Lots of vegetarian and vegan selections in the deli area and beautiful organic produce. There is also a fantastic salad bar. They sell plants and herbs, as well as vitamins and stuff like that. Try the curry fake-chicken salad from the deli! It is delicious! Another great thing about it is, behind the store there are several huge recycling bins for every type of recycling. I don't know if those bins (they are dumpsters!) belong to Earth Fare, but I am guessing they do. When I leave the area, I miss shopping at this store. (p.s. the reason I give it only 4 happy cows is because they do sell meat.)Pros: Super-Friendly Staff, Fantastic Deli Selections, Organic Produce
Cons: ISN'T IN MY HOME TOWN!
