Hunting & Gathering: Grocery

  • Ashevilleans like to feel good about what they buy and where they buy. And with a food philosophy that refuses to stock its wooden shelves with groceries that contain artificial anything Earth Fare has aptly earned the Best Grocery Store again from our Western North Carolina readers. In addition to guilt-free nutritional goods this healthy supermarket offers on-site eats and drinks like fresh paninis from the hot bar and free samples in the wine section. — C.B.
