A {Quick} Trip to Earth Fare

earthfare

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. In some ways I feel like I had an extended weekend due to being out from work on Monday for a few appointments with my husband in Birmingham. On the way home, we decided to stop by Earth Fare since our little town of Tuscaloosa doesn’t have one. We decided to go after a late lunch just so we wouldn’t compulsively shop based on our hunger level (very smart for us).

What I really appreciate about this grocery store is the commitment to properly label “local” items. I’ve been on a “local” kick lately after working on a piece for a publication about restaurants in Tuscaloosa that use local vendors. I’m also a big fan of a grocery store that focuses on “wholesome” eating whether it’s avoiding artificial colors/flavorings or avoiding synthetic growth hormones.

One of the things that I wish we had gotten but didn’t due to extreme fullness was the pasta. It all looked so delicious!!

We did come away with a few goodies including beer and dessert. If it’s any redeeming factor, we opted to get one single beer to try and I just got individual macarons instead of a whole lovely dozen 🙂 The beer ended up being a little too strong in the coffee department but still tasty nonetheless.

These are salted caramel, pistachio, and chocolate macarons. The long day of appointments warranted something sweet. Definitely #winning macaron

 

Do you love Earth Fare? If so, what are your favorite products? How about favorite grocery store? As far as every day groceries, we really love Publix, but that may be because it’s right by my house. However, if we had an Earth Fare down the street, I’d shop there every day. Let’s talk and let me know what you think 🙂

  1. I’ve never been here! It would be nice if we had places like this in Tuscaloosa instead of having to drive to Birmingham. Not that I drive there for food, but you know. 🙂

    Also, the macaroons look SCRUMPTIOUS! This is my dream “I want to learn to make these” dessert!
