As you may know, Homestead Creamery has been eagerly growing our partnership with the healthy, wholesome grocer, Earth Fare. Our customers from beyond our hometown have had the chance to get to know and embrace the Earth Fare brand and we are ecstatic to celebrate with our local community of Southwest Virginia on the grand opening of their newest location in Roanoke!
Save the Date
On Wednesday, November 8, Earth Fare Roanoke will open their doors to the public for the first time and we will be right there to celebrate with them with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, samples of our milk and ice cream, and our ice cream truck!
As a partner to Earth Fare and a grand opening co-operative sponsor, we’ll be onsite with free samples throughout the celebration. We will also be making a donation along with Earth Fare to the Roanoke Community Garden Association to support their new local community garden in the Spring of 2018 at Earth Fare’s check presenting ceremony on the big day!
Ways to Celebrate
In an effort to truly get to know their new community, Earth Fare is setting up various opportunities to get to know your new grocer and celebrate their grand opening.
Get the opportunity to see the inside of the new store before the flood of crowds! With a small donation of $5, you’ll receive admission to a guided tour of the facility to learn about their products and the organization’s food philosophy. You’ll even get to sample some of their favorite healthy products! (Yes, Homestead Creamery is included.)
As an effort to dive right into supporting their local community, all proceeds will fund local community gardens in Roanoke!
Earth Fare’s official grand opening will take place at 7 AM on Wednesday, November 8th. Come early to join in on the ribbon cutting celebration! The first 100 people in line will receive a mystery gift card, valued up to $500!
Don’t worry, there will be plenty of warm coffee, live music, and even some Homestead Creamery ice cream!
Week Long Celebration
The fun doesn’t stop once the doors open on Wednesday morning. Throughout the week and weekend, Earth Fare will host a variety of fun food and fall activities! During the week, you’ll get a chance to get a free, reusable tote bag, find exclusive deals, discover new products through vendor demonstrations and samples and even participate in a few giveaways.
The celebration continues through the weekend with a fall festival featuring outdoor kids’ activities, live music, gift basket giveaways, and more.
We can’t wait to see you there!
