ASHEVILLE, NC – Earth Fare, the rapidly growing authentic specialty organic and natural foods grocery store, proudly announces that it will bring healthier choices to Fairfax, Virginia this winter. The 20,000 square-foot store will be part of the Kamp Washington development at 11054 Lee Highway. The 72,000 square-foot shopping center, located at the corner of Fairfax Boulevard and Lee Highway, is managed by Jacksonville, Florida based Regency Centers.
“Earth Fare is the perfect addition to Kamp Washington. This is one of the most prominent corners in the region, and we wanted a grocer who was going to respond to the wants and needs of the surrounding office and residential communities,” said Krista Di Iaconi, Senior Vice President at Regency Centers. “This center services over 100,000 people at any given time of the day, so it’s important that our line-up of retailers delivers quality offerings to the entire community. We couldn’t be happier to welcome a new member like Earth Fare.”
This will be the second location in Virginia for Earth Fare, who currently operates 41 stores in nine states throughout the Southeast and Midwest. Other upcoming openings include locations in Jacksonville, Florida this month; and Roanoke, Virginia and Oldsmar, Florida this fall.
“Americans deserve a store where they can find all of the products they need to help their families lead longer, healthier lives, and we are looking forward to bringing our mission of providing healthy food for everyone to the Fairfax community,” said Frank Scorpiniti, CEO of Earth Fare. “Earth Fare’s unparalleled commitment to keeping our products free of harmful additives means you can shop our store and be confident that your cart is full of healthy, wholesome options.”
Earth Fare made headlines earlier this year when they challenged Americans to take back control of their health through their food choices and Live Longer With Earth Fare ™. Since 1975, Earth Fare has distinguished itself as a leader in the healthy foods industry by developing a unique Food Philosophy that informs every product offered in the store.

In addition, Earth Fare just announced that its more than 750 private brand food products are now sourced using only non-GMO ingredients, and new products are added to the shelves each day.
Beyond groceries, the new store will also feature Earth Fare’s Heirloom Organic Juice Bar, which features 100% Certified Organic coffees, smoothies, and juices, including custom blends as well as convenient freshly prepared bottles for the person on-the-go. Shoppers will also find a wide variety of organic choices at Earth Fare’s kitchen, featuring ready-to-go and prepared foods including the salad bar, hot foods bar, pizza station, sandwich counter, and conveniently packaged meals-on-the-go.
