Sunflower Farmers Market has announced it will open a new full-service grocery store in Flagstaff, Arizona, adjacent to Northern Arizona University, by the end of 2013. The market will join Bookmans, Michael’s, and Pier 1 Imports in the University Meadows Shopping Center located on Riordan Ranch Road. This Sunflower location will be the ninth in Arizona and is expected to bring 100 jobs to the area along with the value-priced natural groceries for which Sunflower is known.
The approximately 26,000-square-foot Sunflower Farmers Market will offer a vast array of fresh produce including locally grown and organic options. Additionally, shoppers will find all-natural meats including grass-fed beef and handmade sausages, plus wild-caught seafood, bulk coffee beans, fresh-baked artisan breads and fresh-to-go soups.
Grocery items addressing special dietary needs – including vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options – are also a hallmark of Sunflower Farmers Market. The store will also boast a Natural Living department, which will feature health and wellness products including skin care, vitamins and supplements.
“We’re thrilled to bring value-priced, healthy, natural and organic groceries to Flagstaff’s college students and families,” said Sunflower CEO, Chris Sherrell.
