A new grocery store that offers organic and natural products at affordable prices has come to the Tri-Cities.
Sunflower Farmers Market officially opened for business Wednesday morning at 39900 Mowry Ave. in Fremont and is celebrating its grand opening throughout the weekend.
To continue celebrating the store's grand opening, the first 10,000 shoppers will receive a free reusable grocery bag with purchase (one per customer).
The following is a press release issued by Sunflowers Farmers Market: Editor's note: The report was lightly edited.
Sunflower Farmers Market, the full-service natural and organic grocer known for carrying “serious food at silly prices,” opened its fourth store in the California market.
The Sunflower Farmers Market grand opening activities held Wednesday began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7 a.m., and was celebrated throughout the day with special savings in every department.
Sunflower CEO Chris Sherrell says the goal of Sunflower is to help Fremont families eat healthy for less.
The store will offer a large selection of fresh produce, including local and organic choices, as well as all-natural meats from grass-fed beef to handmade sausages.
The market is also known for vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options. Fremont’s Sunflower will serve up fresh seafood, a bakery featuring fresh, hot French bread daily, a deli with made-to-go meals, and a large bulk selection including dozens of varieties of coffee beans.
In addition, Sunflower will carry natural living health and wellness products, from vitamins to body care, and an extensive line of private label products.
“Friendly, helpful customer service is also part of the neighborhood farmers market feel,” Sherrell said.
A new sale flyer highlighting weekly grocery specials will be distributed to the community each Wednesday. Customers can preview the savings online every Tuesday morning at www.sunflowermarkets.com. Every Wednesday, weekly Sunflower sale flyers will overlap, meaning shoppers can save on last week’s specials AND the current week’s specials. Sunflower calls it “Double Ad Wednesday.”
Sunflower opened its first California store in Roseville a year ago in May. A Modesto location followed in October, with a Sacramento (Land Park) store opening this month. Sunflower Farmers Market currently has 37 stores throughout eight states: Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Texas, California and Oklahoma.
