Earth Fare Opens New Montgomery Location February 16

Montgomery, Ala., February 13, 2011 -– Earth Fare, the healthy supermarket, is opening its third Alabama location, February 16 in the Shoppes at EastChase in Montgomery, AL. 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 adheres to a strict food philosophy that prohibits items with high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils (trans-fats), as well as artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors or fragrances. In addition to the above, Earth Fare's Food Philosophy bans all fresh meats and dairy containing antibiotics and/or synthetic growth hormones.

The Montgomery 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 bakery and body and supplement department. The store will also make healthy eating convenient and affordable with its ready-to-go meal options from the grill, hot bar and prepared food case.

"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 Montgomery products without high fructose corn syrup, added trans-fats and artificial colors and preservatives. We look forward to the Montgomery community joining us on our health journey, starting February 16!"
