Default Happy to have Earth Fare Supermarket here

Today we shopped for the first time at Earth Fare (on 441). Everything is organic and no harmful ingredients are permitted in the products that they sell. There were many items on sale including some buy-one-get-one-free specials. There is a prepared food section and a bunch of tables for in-store eating. I'm really glad to have this option. It's a welcome addition to our food choices. (We're vegetarian and they stock many plant based products that we buy.) Give it a try and let us know what you think.

We were there last night.

Honestly, I think it is a marketing racket to claim certain food is "organic." People freely pay a lot more money for food they perceive as better. And the prices at the store were certainly higher, even for the exact same products at Publix.

Yes, a welcome addition. Similar to Sprouts down in Orlando, and Fresh Market up on 466 area here in The Villages. As others have noted, a Sprouts is also planned for The Villages.

Nice to have new grocery stores with different food items.

I wish them well.

Looking forward to Sprouts opening, since it will be golf cart accessible. From what I can tell looking at google maps, Earth Fare is on the wrong side of 441 for accessibility?

Not all prices are higher at Earth Fare. Organic, in general, is cheaper at Earth Fare, and other items but you have to pick and chose and especially look for the sales.

My family will be shopping at both.

Have shopped at Earth Fare for years. Meat counter staff is excellent. The grass feed ground round, has the best flavor out of any beef we have bought in any TV grocery including Fresh Market.

We have eaten organic entire lives, from our grandparents mini farm, until our 30s (organic wasn’t a buzz word). Then the 4 local farms on my 13 minute drive to work. All our fruit, vegetables, dairy, and poultry, and beef came from locals. If we grocery shop it’s WF, TJ’s, and Earth Fare. Not going to change a life long habit, just because of a little higher cost.

Absolutely horrible place. I bought Salmon there, would not let me smell it , took home, and stunk. No fish should smell like fish. Took back and had a hard time getting a refund from night manager. Was not a Customer friendly person. WILL NOT BE BACK!

I saw a thread re: this a week or so ago. It will be on the corner of 466 and Buena Vista. Hope they make this intersection "safer". The congestion on Parr Drive will be not great as well.

I went and was a little disappointed I think I like Fresh Market better. And I heard we were getting a sprouts (orlando, tampa) and was looking forward to it because we just moved back from north Dallas Frisco and they were great there. I've never been to a store that had that much fresh vegetable and fruits inexpensive and prepared foods
