Earth Fare Gainesville

This time last year Sunny and I were given a private tour of the new Earth Fare in Jacksonville.  This year we've been asked to tell y'all about the new Earth Fare in Gainesville that just opened on August 12th.  

Earth Fare is a great grocery store.  Seriously, Sunny and I love it and she asks to go at least once a week.  

The new store is located at:

3045 SW 34th Street Suite 30
Gainesville, FL 32608

This is their 38th store in the US and their 3rd in Florida.  The other 2 are located in Jacksonville and Tallahassee.  The store also has 8 registers.  

The one this I love is what Earth Fare DOESN'T have.  None of the foods at Earth Fare ever have;

  • Antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones
  • Artificial fats or trans-fats
  • High-fructose corn syrup
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Artificial preservatives
  • Bleached or bromated flour
  • Artificial colors or flavors

Eat Local
Many of Earth Fare's products are Florida grown. Look for the red signs that have the local emblem on them.

Meat & Seafood

Earth Fare has a large selection of fresh meat and seafood.  They are all humanely raise, 100% vegetarian fed, sustainably managed and wild caught.


They have a nice sized indoor cafe where you can sit down and eat your freshly prepared food or an outdoor cafe that seats 55 and offers free wifi.  

While we're talking about prepared food, you HAVE to try it.  I know they always say "don't grocery shop hungry" but, I always goto Earth Fare hungry.  They have an amazing hot bar, sandwiches, sushi, pizza, smoothies and a salad bar. They also have an olive bar. 


They have a wide variety of produce.  If you look closely at the picture you can see the local emblem on the tags.  {And just to clarify, "local" is within 100 miles of Gainesville}

They also have a huge bulk section, a health and wellness department that sells gluten free and vegan makeup (among other things), {what seems like} miles of frozen food cases, scoop your own ravioli, and wine and beer.

The ribbon cutting for the store was August 12th.  Earth Fare presented a check for $1,000 to the University of Florida's Field and Fork Campus Food Program.  This initiative was designed by University of Florida campus partners to feed the estimated 10 percent of UF students who face food insecurity.  

After talking about all the special things that Earth Fare has I want to let you know what I have.  I have a $25 gift card for 1 lucky winner!  Enter the raffle to win.  The winner will be announced (and notified) on September 6,2015.

There are 2 things you must do to enter.  Like my Facebook page {CLICK HERE} and leave a comment down below.  

Don't have an Earth Fare near you?  Do you know someone who does?  {Click HERE for a list of Earth Fare locations}  Christmas is only 124 days away.  An Earth Fare gift card would make a lovely Christmas present!
