In 1975, Earth Fare opened as Dinner for the Earth in Asheville, NC. It was the city’s first health food store and the mission was simple: to offer real food to empower people to regain control of their health.
Our first store was just 1,200 square feet and offered a modest selection of organic dried bulk goods and wellness products. Growing over the years, our commitment to Clean, healthy food has never wavered. Our Food Philosophy ensures that you can shop with confidence in every aisle of our store, without ever needing to read a label.
In March 2020, a loyal customer and local business leader purchased Earth Fare with the vision to reestablish stores in communities across the Southeast. Supported by investors, our original founders, local advocates, and previous Earth Fare Team Members, the team will begin the renewed mission to improve lives by making healthy food available to everyone and bringing our unique Food Philosophy back to the communities we serve.
