Please use this thread to list organic grocery stores, alongwith brief info on your experience / liking:

Uptown:
?

South Charlotte:
Home Economist: Below Avg: They dont have variety nor quality. Bakery section has dime sized cakes, that aren't worth buying. Plus: Some hard to find bulk herbs are there

Talley's: Very Good: Medium sized store, not as much variety as Whole Foods, but the best quality organic stuff available in Charlotte. Nice pure organic bakery and cakes. Drawback: expensive. Scant variety of bulk leaf teas.

Earth Fare: Good: Large sized store, though still not as much variety as Whole Foods. Drawback: not as high quality. No bulk teas.

Charlotte will be getting a Whole Foods soon from what I have read. I think they are supposed to even get two of them. I prefer Whole Foods to Earth Fare.

I am having a hard time too. I am a Vegan and finding food, esp. in the winter has become more difficult.

Keep the answers coming! Esp. if you know anywhere in South Charlotte.

There's a strictly Organic and Vegan cafe and health food store on Union Street in Concord. The cafe is called The Sweet Pea cafe and the adjoining store is Natural Harvest.

The food in the cafe is AWESOME and the store is small but has all the staples and some refrigerated/frozed items

Earh Fare is the best imo..best selection with 2 Charlotte locations and 1 in Rock Hill coming soon. Next would be HE market. Talley's is ok, their cafe has gotten some REALLY bad sanitation grades and quite often too, so I won't eat there. Berrybrook farms is good but small. Cupps Cafe near Wintrhop has some good vegeterian options. Just Fresh's new kitchen cafe at Rivergate in Steele Creek has vegan/vegeterian options. Island Breeze in baxter Village is good, but only open for breakfeast and lunch. Harris Teeter carries a lot of naturals and organics, as does Bloom, but Bloom's prices are really high on them. There's also Amazon cafe and Wolfgang Puck express.

I really miss the restaurant at the Peaceful Dragon. That place was awesome.

Flying biscuit has a couple of vegan dishes...Table in Ballantyne (upscale) has a vegan entree as well as does the Doubletree Hotel's restaurant near south park. Indian restaurants usually offer vegan dishes too.
