Whole Foods is coming to Charlotte in the Elizabeth neighborhood in 2008 and SouthPark in 2009.

What about Fresh Market? There is (at least was) one at Carmel Commons off of Hwy 51, close to Pineville.

Just wondering...where I live, you can buy many organic products in the (good) supermarket. Can you do the same there, or do you have to go to a specialty organic foods store?

Thanks!

(Psyched to see an organic thread!!)

Tally's ok, but as with Earth Fare and Home Economist market, their prices are very high. Earth Fare is opening at South Park VERY SOON and they are having a hiring fair next week.

Many Harris Teeters carry a nice organic section as well as Lowes Foods. The Harris Teeter at SouthPark is the best in the area.

I don't know about Charlotte (I live in Portland, Or) but I will be moving there late summer this year......we have huge organic availability here and am hoping to find the same thing there. Whole Foods are not as expensive as someone said.......although I have heard the expression "whole paycheck". I have found that all the items I shop for to be cheaper at Whole Foods vs buying the same items at a mainstream grocer who does not specialize in organic items. Yes, organic and other less processed foods will cost more anywhere but you are getting superior products. Their deli is to die for including their cheese dept, bread dept and desserts!

I am soooooo pleased to learn that TJs is coming to the area. I actually wrote them several times over the last 2 years suggesting that Charlotte would be a good place for them since I knew I planned to move there! Ha! Selfish, I know! The TJ's in Cary, NC is very different from the TJ's I'm used to on the west coast......but, hey, its still a TJ's!

Thanks so much for the dairy link. I love getting fresh milk delivered to my door now and would love to continue the practice.

Also, does anyone know any good CSA's in the area? Community Supported Agriculture to those not familiar with the acronym. I've enjoyed them here and would love to participate in the Charlotte area. Since I do not know which area I will be living in yet.........any area info would be great. Maybe it will persuade me to pick my neighborhood based on the availability.

Thanks much!

I just noticed that the Lakeside Farms milk is not organic. At those prices, it should be. I wonder if they are organic but don't want to pay for the organic certification? I suppose I could call....anybody already know?
