Alright, now this post is speaking of things second hand, but I consider my husband a reliable source. He finally got an opportunity to shop at Sunflower Market in Boulder this week. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him so excited about a grocery shopping excursion. He came home with more produce than ever seen him buy, he stocked the pantry with things usually left to me to bring home. The bottom line, the prices, selection, and overall experience made him want to go again. I knew when I received their weekly flyer that things were different in this store, not your ordinary health food shop. No, quite the opposite, they have turned the natural food shopping experience into something accessible to everyone with every kind of budget. Compare that to their competitor, Whole Foods (or as we quip, Whole Paycheck) and you’ll find at Sunflowers, you’ll be coming home with a heavier wallet for once. I can’t wait to head over myself, but for now, my husband’s shopping spree makes it unnecessary.
I’ll report when I experience it myself. By the way, they might have one in your own neighborhood – they are opening stores all over the western states, but particularly here in Colorado. Enjoy!
