Earth Fare is coming to Gainesville ready to share its natural food selection with the local community

On August 12, the Gainesville community will have the opportunity to indulge in the organic, natural food selection of Earth Fare. They are set to open in University Towne Center. The grocery store chain has its roots in North Carolina and has won over customers with its organics, natural, and local food selection. Their exclusion of foods with high fructose corn syrup, artificial preservatives, colors, sweeteners, and dairy raised with antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones has cemented their brand.

The 60,000 square foot addition to University Town Center, located on Archer and 34th, will also include a Youfit gym. The no-obligation gym is starting its memberships for a modest $10 a month. Earth Fare and Youfit have a lot to be excited about, considering their prime location on Archer road, the most traveled road in Gainesville. In addition, University Towne Center is in close proximity to Shands and UF. University Towne Center has one more retail space available for lease between Earthfate and Youfit. The community anxiously waits to see who will decide to set up shop in the busiest corridor in Gainesville.
