Tallahassee, Fla., December 12, 2010 -- Earth Fare, the healthy supermarket, is opening its first Florida location, Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 2425 Apalachee Pkwy in Tallahassee, Florida. Founded in Asheville, NC 35 years ago, Earth Fare strives to feed and inspire the healthy person inside us all by offering a wide variety of local, organic and healthy foods.

Unlike other grocery stores, Earth Fare follows a strict ingredient philosophy that prohibits products with high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils (trans-fats), bleached or bromated flour, as well as artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives.

The Tallahassee Earth Fare location will offer fresh local and organic fruits and vegetables, full service antibiotic- and hormone-free meat, poultry and seafood departments, a cheese department, an on-site scratch bakery. The store will also feature a wellness department that will offer all-natural supplement and body care products to promote fully holistic lifestyle.

"At Earth Fare, we read the label so you don't have to," said Jack Murphy, Earth Fare's Chief Executive Officer. "We are passionate about providing communities like Tallahassee products without high fructose corn syrup, added trans-fats and artificial colors and preservatives. We look forward to the Tallahassee community joining us on our health journey, starting December 15th."

Earth Fare partners with local community organizations, schools and like-minded businesses to help others join the healthy journey. Through its Friend of Earth Fare, Free Pantry Makeover and Itty Bitty Bites programs, Earth Fare strives to give back to the communities by doing its part to eliminate childhood obesity through education, access, affordability and teamwork.
