My family could no longer bring ourselves to shop at this DISGUSTING EXCUSE FOR A FAMILY ORIENTED STORE. THE PLACE WREAKS OF MAGGOTS. I was propositioned by patrons on the grounds of the store. The MARSHALLS better stay within close proximity. NEVER BRING an older person here that can not look out for oneself. I would NEVER BRING ANY HUMAN BEING I RESPECTED TO A FILTHY STORE AS THIS. THE CHECKOUT PEOPLE, ANS CLIST HAGS ALONE ARE ENOUGH TO MAKE THE BEST OF US THROW OUR GUTS UP. LETS HOPE AS PLANNED WITHIN 2 MONTHS TOPS THEY'RE ARRESTED. THE CORNER MAN, AND THOSE SHAGGY HEADED STRAW SUCKING SCUM, BOXED UP, AND SHIPPED OFF. be warned STAY AWAY--- THE ELDER ARE BEING ABUSED WITHIN THE PREMISES, AND DRUGS ARE DEALT ON THE PREMISES OF EARTH FARE ATHENS, GA. THE ELDERLY-- THEIR MONEY IS LIFTED FROM THEIR POCKETS. THANK GOD FOR THE FEDS ICE

I've been a fan of Earthfare in Athens since it opened, however I've now seen the light: Earthfare costs the same as Whole foods (also known as Whole Paycheck), except Earthfare has about 50 percent of the selection. Trader Joes offers better service, better prices, and a fun selection. Earthfare needs to tighten up and realize that it has competition and offer better prices and staff that have some customer service skills.

I usually buy most of my supplements online since it is much cheaper than shopping at Earth Fare. For some reason I decided to go there yesterday (January 13 2010) and, as to be expected, things were pricey. But that is not all. As I was checking out, the girl on the check out counter asked me if it was okay for her to add a 5 cent donation to my bill to go for the plastic Earth Fare shopping bag, then she gave me a spill about recycling, etc. I was so surprised - I was speechless. It was not the amount of the donation - 5 cents is almost nothing - but it was the principle of the whole thing. I don't think Earth Fare is the place to solicit you for money for a shopping bag, especially because it is so expensive to shop there already. I already donate to various causes but I do like to have a choice and not feel "accosted" or "preached to" by someone at the counter !!! I am back to online shopping even if I have to wait for my supplements to arrive. Earth Fare has lost its right to use me to do their free advertisement (since their shopping bags say "Earth Fare" on them). Instead I will advertise for Wal-Mart since that is the bag I will take to the store with me to carry my stuff - if I ever go back.

It's like a WF without the big-box-store aspect. Prices are a little high, but you go here for quality foods and eco-friendly skincare and cleaning products. Wonderful.

I am not vegetarian, vegan or super organic concerned. BUt I do like high quality!
Earth fare has great organic products, beautiful veggies and fruits and lots of flours, beans, seeds, etc in bulk. They have a large selection of wines, cheeses, and pantry products but the most notable quality of the store is the ready to eat section!
The ready to eat section offers take out salads, sandwiches, sushi, and make your own salads, and also offers a deli case of dinner entrees, picnic salads and other enticing items.
The meat and seafood section is why I love Earth Fare, I haven't found another food retailer that has better shrimp or salmon, or better service. the counter staff at the meat/seafood counter are very helpful.
They have homeopathic and natural remedies and natural makeups, and even have a natural pet section.

This store is perfect for those of us who are concered with our health and food quality.

PROS: Great quality, great selection
CONS: a little pricey sometimes

Earth Fare is your typical Natural Foods grocery store - organic fruits and vegetables, specialty grocery products, good quality organic meats and cheeses, specialty bakery items and more. They have a great bulk selection with everything from rapsberry granola to mixed nuts to trail mix. They also carry various kinds of nut butters - like almond butter. Additionally, herbs and seasonings can be bought in bulk - so you can get just a teaspoonful to an entire pound.

Natural and organic toiletries are also available.

Their deli is incredible - freshly prepared and unique deli sides and salads. They also offer a salad bar buffet which you can eat in a small eating area near the front of the store - the buffet is always great, healthy and fresh.

Samples are usually plentiful around the bakery and deli areas.

In the usually busy Five Points area they have a good size parking lot.

Given that it is just steps from foodie palace 5&10 and just minutes from all the gastronome Normal-towners, EarthFare is a no-brainer for those needing in-season produce, organic vegetables, and cruelty-free meat. For those familiar with Whole Foods ?? it??s basically the juggernaut??s baby brother with an extra stress on local product. Bread comes from Athens?? own Luna Bakery, vegetables come from local farms, and foodie-centric items such as canning supplies and fresh potted herbs are for sale near the registers. Those who don??t feel like playing Chef Keller, ready-to-take-home foods are also available. If you are serious about food, you shouldn??t be seen at any other grocery store.
