Market
“Earth Fare is an excellent choice for groceries. It is similar to Whole Foods, but easier on the wallet. The pizza is excellent and can be purchased by the slice or you can take a whole pie home to bake yourself. There is a hot and cold bar of prepared foods and a full selection of cheeses, bread, desserts, beer, wine, ​and all staple grocery items. The meat and fish are​ the best in the area.”
