VIERA, FLORIDA – Earth Fare, a specialty organic and natural grocery store and full-service supermarket, will open this winter on Viera Boulevard and Murrell Road in Viera. The 26,000 square-foot store will be part of the Viera East Village Shopping Center, currently being redeveloped by The Benchmark Group.
Earth Fare has demonstrated rapid growth in Florida, with four new stores opening in the state in the last 12 months.
“We are extremely excited to be bringing such a quality natural and organic grocery operator as Earth Fare to the Viera market,” said Martin DelleBovi, Executive Vice President, Director of Real Estate of The Benchmark Group.
“We have looked at several different opportunities to redevelop this center into its next life cycle and we are thrilled that by being patient we were able to secure Earth Fare. This provides us the opportunity to completely renovate the entire center and complete the build out of the additional outparcels.”
Earth Fare has been among the leaders in the healthy foods grocery industry for more than 40 years by continually developing innovative programs and campaigns that make it easier for shoppers to take back control of their health through their food choices.
Since its founding in 1975, Earth Fare has maintained a unique Food Philosophy that informs every product offered in the store.
This Food Philosophy is exemplified by a rigorous set of Quality Standards, which ensures that all products sold are free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial fats and trans-fats, artificial colors, artificial preservatives, artificial sweeteners, bleached or bromated flour, and are never administered antibiotics or growth hormones.
“Americans everywhere deserve a place where they can shop confidently, knowing that every product in their cart is free from harmful ingredients or chemicals that we know are not conducive to a healthy lifestyle.” said Earth Fare President and CEO Frank Scorpiniti.
“We are pleased to be working with Mr. DelleBovi and the Benchmark Group in order to bring our unparalleled commitment to helping the vibrant, growing, Viera community to live longer, healthier, happier lives.”
Earth Fare’s 750+ private brand food products are all sourced using only non-GMO ingredients, and new products are being added to the shelves each day. Beyond groceries, the new store will also feature Earth Fare’s Heirloom Juice Bar, which features smoothies, juices, coffee and convenient, freshly prepared bottles for the person on-the-go.
Shoppers will also find a wide variety of Clean, natural choices at Viera 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. Shoppers can enjoy a homemade meal without the work, whether dining in the indoor and outdoor café with free Wi-Fi or taking it home.
