Earth Fare in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee
Earth Fare wants to change the way you think about food: While that might sound a bit dramatic, Earth Fare thinks it’s a pretty reasonable goal. Because let’s be honest, some food has become really unhealthy in the last few decades. Whether it’s junk food, fast food, processed food or all three combined, finding the healthy choice amongst so much clutter can be challenging. And, that’s why they’re here. As one of the largest natural food retailers in the nation, Earth Fare makes healthy eating convenient, affordable, fun and - of course - delicious! With 16 stores in four states, Earth Fare offer everything from ready-to-go meal options, local and organic farm fresh fruits and vegetables, and full service meat, poultry and seafood departments.

Our Food Philosophy sets us apart: However, what really sets Earth Fare apart from other stores is not only what Earth Fare offers, but also what they don’t offer. Like any products with high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, artificial colors, synthetic growth hormones (in the meat and milk) and unnatural sweeteners! Yep, they’re all banned from any products sold in our stores!

Moonrise Pottery - Bryan Hill – Asheville, NC
"How a vessel looks, how it feels, if it invites touch at all, if it is functional or if it is even supposed to be; these are all questions that affect how my pieces express themselves and how my audiences in turn respond to my work. My sensibilities have lead me toward designs which hearken a more primitive lifestyle rich in an awareness of the natural world and its sumptuous form while grounded in a recognition of our own mortality and life's basic rhythms, contained within the lines and movements of a simple vessel."
