Earth Fare’s Philosophy & Culture

The mission at Earth Fare is to connect communities and improve lives through food. Their vision is to be the most trusted organic and natural food market in the country – a place where healthy decisions are easy, people have confidence in the food they buy and everyone feels welcome. What really sets them apart from other organic grocery stores is their strict food philosophy:

Their motto is: We check the label so you don’t have to – the food items on their shelves and cases contain NO:

·        NO High-Fructose Corn Syrup
·        NO artificial fats or artificial trans fats
·        NO artificial colors
·        NO artificial flavors
·        NO artificial preservatives
·        NO artificial sweeteners
·        NO antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones in our fresh meat or dairy
·        NO bleached or bromated flour

Earth Fare also has a list of examples of items they don’t allow into their stores, which is more widely known as: Earth Fare’s Boot List.

Earth Fare Supports Both Local & Fair Trade:

  • 100 mile local commitment: the products that are labeled local in their store are guaranteed to come from within a 100 mile radius of their store.
  • Fair Trade: if something is marked fair trade, i.e. coffee, then the people growing/picking the beans are given fair wages for their work.

Again, the Fitness By Patty has been invited for a special pre-grand opening VIP welcome tour of the store on Monday August 18th at 3:30pm. If you’d like to be one of the first 20 people that can join this event, then please RSVP by emailing me: patty@fitnessbypatty.com.
