Have decided to start shopping at these stores, but one is in WS and the other in GSO- both a ways from where I live in Thomasville.

Is one better than the other?

Not really (I've shopped at both). One may have brands the other doesn't have but both are comparable with some different ammenities. I recommend trying each and make your own decision.

I've only been to Earth Fare, it's OK. I like Deep Roots better.

Earth fare is just OK. Whole Foods offers so much more selection.

I went to Earth Fare yesterday....$323 was the bill. I knew organic was more expensive....just didn't know it was triple.
{but you have to expect that with 1st purchases of oils/spices and such...those you'll keep a long time in the pantry}

Still think it will be worth it.

Next week I'll go to Whole Foods...try it out.

I must say that the $6.00 carton of orange juice.... the best tasting oj I've ever had!
And I the 'doritos'- the first few are good but afterwards they start to leave a bad taste. My daughter said- it will make it so I don't eat as much.....hey! She's right!

I like Earth Fare. They're always running great coupons if you sign up for their weekly newsletter.

Earth Fare good, and I find it a little cheaper than Whole Foods. Deep Roots is a locally owned Co-op and it's good too. I find the Farmer's market downtown or the one on Sandy Ridge Road to be great for veggies. Also, on Market Street there's the Fanta City Mall and it has a place called Super G which has a great selection of international foods, if that's your thing. Good luck!

I think that Earthfare has a more "humane" and "vegan" friendly selection of foods compared to Whole Foods. While both offer good store branded organic selections, Earthfare seems to cater more to "know where your food comes from" crowd and Whole foods is getting to be a healthy with some organic store. I've not YET been to the farmers market in Thomasville, but that might be a place to try also for local organic food.

Living in WS, we tend to shop at Whole Paycheck, I mean Foods, but this weekend my wife and I made our first REAL shopping visit to Earthfare. Comparatively, I think Earthfare came out ahead of WF in many areas including price.

Have you looked into Trader Joe's....they are in Cary and Charlotte which is probably farther for you but you may find it worthwhile....they have excellent products AND great prices....

It's probably too far from Thomasville, but if you or others are out and about near Lewisville you might try Mostly Local Market. It's definitely a much smaller scale than the stores that you were asking about but it's also locally grown meats, veggies, etc.

Welcome to the Market!
