The new grocery store at Emory Point, Earth Fare, now has an opening date, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle…
North Carolina-based Earth Fare Inc. has set a July 8 opening for its 24,000-square-foot store at the mixed-use development near Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
It will be the chain’s first Atlanta location and also its first store with an “urban concept design,” said the company in an announcement. It will have a large emphasis on prepared foods, including sandwiches and smoothies.

You may recall our mention of the Atlanta Business Chronicle article from a couple of weeks back that reported on Sprouts Farmer’s Markets coming to Atlanta soon.
Well Carl points out that another recent ABC article (mostly behind a paywall) that notes that Earth Fare out of North Carolina is also scouting out the Atlanta market and looking for locations. And this time Decatur is mentioned specifically. Not by the company, but by a local commercial real estate broker, Amy Fingerhut.
Decatur is also ripe for more grocery options, Fingerhut said.
The article goes on to posit that the coming mixed-use development of the Callaway Building site is one potential option.
