    What in the world is wrong with all you anti-Facebook folks. Really?…get some real problems. Earth Fare is a great place that is doing something good in our world by promoting better health and wellness. Give it a break! If you don’t wish to be a participant of Facebook…it’s simple, don’t! I have no problem if you don’t want to use Facebook…actually my odds are better for this contest:-). Too many people in this world love to complain about any and everything; which, by the way, are the ones that actually do nothing about any and everything…except complain. Earth Fare doesn’t have to promote contests or give away coupons…please, let that sink in. It is a privilege that we CAN participate in a contest and/or receive coupons, etc… Also, take in to account that they will be promoting other contests in the future that will not require you to have a Facebook account. You have to understand that no business can please or accommodate everyone. I am a business owner myself and in this economy Facebook is a great avenue for marketing a business. Earth Fare…keep doing what you’re doing and don’t feel that you have to change any marketing strategy for the 1% of the population that does not utilize Facebook.

    It baffles me how when a company chooses to offer something for FREE through a VARIETY of avenues, people will get upset because it’s not done their way, as if we are owed something simply based on the fact that we choose a healthier food philosophy. The coupons still come through my email, I’m certainly not missing out on anything just because they are also posted on facebook. If you’re not getting them, check your spam box. That has happened to me before. Meanwhile, let’s give up the entitlement attitude and be thankful Earth Fare is offering us anything at all. You certainly won’t get offers like Earth Fare has at most any other grocery store. Where else can you feed your kids healthy organic food for free on Thursday nights, get a dinner for four for simply joining on a website (in fact they printed my coupon for that AT the store on THEIR printer!), get coupons for free stuff all the time, not to mention not having to worry about anything at all sold in the store being genetically engineered? Maybe we should all live in a third world country where there is nothing to eat except rice and dirty water. Earth Fare, you totally rock!

    An environmentally safe and clean home is important. But the food in our home takes precedence. It must be fresh, wholesome, nourishing, organic and safe. A peak into our refrigerator, freezer, and pantry portrays the healthiest aspect of our home. Thank you Earth Fare for making this possible. We do our major grocery shopping at the Westgate store where the entire staff is always courteous, helpful, and a pleasure to deal with.

    I have tried and tried to leave my contest entry “Comment” on the facebook site. When I click on “Comment” to get into the comment box, it takes me to a place to sign on to facebook. I put my password in and it takes me back to your facebook…….with absolutely no where to comment. Please help!

  5. Susan Brown says

    Our home is healthier because we’ve been mostly buying organic and local items, and we try to limit packaging — and portions.

  6. Susan Hill says

    We have been on a health journey that began by giving up bad fats and high fructose corn syrup. From the time that EarthFare posted its intended opening in Auburn, we researched the store, and waited for a store with the same philosophy as ours to open in our town. Now we are able to commit to whole grains, local farmers, and organic selections. We love the Alabama milk from our own local dairy, Free trade support, caring for the enivornment, and our pets. Thanks EarthFare.

      Exactly! Clerks here actually understand why I’m handing them an empty bag of my own. Other places give you that blank look on their face. I even have to bag my own because they don’t know how to do their job with a cloth bag instead of plastic lol.

  7. Tiffany says

    I try to make my home healthier by using plant based cleaning supplies, energy efficent appliances and lightbulbs, and by only purchasing foods that I have read the labels for. Organic is not always possible but, we can make healthy choices and avoid artificial ingredients and sugar substitutes (which have been known to cause cancer). We try to eat a balanced meal with plenty of nutrients- I now even have my kids eating asparagus! Amazing!! We grow a garden every year and it helps us to eat better and my kids are more likely to try new things when they know how it was grown and where it comes from.

  8. Mary Ann says

    I have to agree with Lynn. No reading labels, great wines, and the best cheese in town. The beef is noticeably better, the deli, the muffins…..it always smells good and the music even suits my taste. Someone else does all the obsessing and I get to enjoy it. I’m a senior, so I get a discount EVERY DAY. Thanks Earth Fare!

    To some, Facebook is fun and entertaining, kind of like a 24-7 party I suppose. And that’s fine. For others, however, it’s not so innocuous. Families have been torn apart because of Facebook, so, like a lot of technology available today, it does have a more sinister side. For this reason, our family has chosen not to open this door.

    I agree wholeheartedly with Earthfare’s family-centered philosophy described in their February 7, 2011 blog. We families need to spend more time talking to each other and less time massaging our gadgets. So, thank you Earthfare, for taking the time to address our concerns about Facebook. I’m sure the level of frustration against Facebook came as a bit of a surprise, and I believe you have handled our concerns professionally.

    Thank you also for your stores — for rewarding your customers with coupons for free food, for stocking your shelves with wholesome products, and for providing an atmosphere where I’m not embarrassed to stand with my children in the check-out line. Our family appreciates it and our community is stronger because of Earthfare’s family-centered philosophy.

    “We’re simply holding a contest on Facebook.”

    So you’re holding a contest (a “sweepstakes”) that requires joining facebook to participate in? That sounds pretty shady, considering Facebook’s policies.

    My home is healthy because we don’t spend time on Facebook, so I guess this contest isn’t for me, either.

  11. Nikkole says

    It’s amazing to see how many people think they know what the word “healthy” really means!
    Healthy sometimes means that you run into obstacles and address them properly. Lack of doing so can result in an unhealthy awareness.
    Social networks have good and bad aspects. Fortunately, Earth Fare has chosen to take advantage of the good in FB!
    It’s a shame that this opportunity has been morphed into a “FACEBOOK” scandal!

  12. Velvet says

    Where is the post on the FB page. I don’t really use it much so I am unfamiliar with the layout. I have searched for 1/2 hour and can’t find it. Why didn’t you make it easier to find, or post the direct link in my e-mail? Please lead the way. Have a great day!

    • Nikkole says

    I found out about your store through a friend. It was rather funny, I already had two of your bags that I got at a town fair. I love finding new and healthy things that actually taste like food did when I grew up and we had a garden with no chemicals masking the taste. And your meats and deli are to die for. I love being able to pick up healthy choices for my family. I have been overweight all my life, I have lost 108lbs and still need more, so finding your market has been a true thrill. I am teaching my child to really think about what he puts in his body. It is just the two of us and as he is in middle school and playing sports it is important to him to be healthy. He loves shopping at the market. This is what makes our family a healthy family

  14. Julia Moseley says

    Our home is healthier because we shop at Earth Fare for good locally grown produce and products. All of the staff at the Columbis, SC store is so friendly and knowledgeable we love to come there even though we have to cross town. We especially love trying the weekly “freebies”
    Thank you all at Earth Fare!!!

    Our home is healthy because fruits, vegees, herbs. Wash and wash your hands. Only non-toxic cleaners,etc in our home. Take off those shoes when you come in the door of your home- your shoes go awalking everywhere. Eat organic and no hormones as much as possible. Stay away from too much sugar and bad stuff like food colorings. Laugh, spend time together is healthy.

  16. LS says

    Far more than “1% of the population” avoids Facebook. Facebook is insidious and evil, fooling its members into basically signing away their lives and their privacy and trying to pacify them with cheap games in order to do it. It’s surprising that a company like Earth Fare would choose to utilize a site like that.

  17. Vivian Fairchild says

    My husband and I realized we needed emergency nutritional advise. We are seeing a nurtitionist and working out regularly. We realize we are not dieting but taking steps for a complete lifestyle change. We are in our late 40’s and are really excited that our children are willing to change with us. Amazing for most teens, we know!

    We have been on our “new life program” (it is certainly not a diet) for three weeks. We could tell a major change was occuring within a week. We are thankful we live within minutes of two Earthfare locations and are grateful.

    Please add the following to your email list.

    Thank you for making it a more pleasurable experience as we learn to read lables and know what we are actually putting into our bodies.
