Sunflower to bloom in Fremont

Submitted By Alejandra Cardenas

When do books blossom? For Fremont, the answer is in early 2012 when Sunflower Farmers Market opens its doors in Fremont Plaza at the site of the previous Barnes & Noble. Announcing its sixth store in California, the specialty market with its slogan "serious food at silly prices" has leased 24,425 square feet at the shopping center located at Mowry Avenue and Fremont Boulevard. It is anticipated that the store will add at least 100 new jobs to the area.

"Our commitment to supplying natural and organic groceries at the lowest possible price point makes us a great fit for Fremont's health-conscious, budget-savvy consumers," said Sunflower's CEO, Chris Sherrell. "We're excited to bring a fresh choice to the area. I think customers will immediately notice that our friendly service and silly prices really set us apart."

The new Fremont Sunflower Farmers Market plans to serve up an enticing variety of fresh produce, all-natural meats, including signature handmade sausages, a variety of seafood, a large bulk selection, plus natural living health and wellness products from vitamins to body care. Weekly savings will be showcased online at and in sale flyer mailers every Wednesday.

The Fremont Sunflower Farmers Market is one of five new California stores the grocer plans to open between fall 2011 and late 2012. Sunflower currently operates one California store in the Roseville area, which opened its doors in May. A second Sunflower store is scheduled to open this fall in Modesto, followed by a Sacramento (Land Park) location in early 2012. A San Jose Sunflower is on track to open in the Branham Square Shopping Center during the third quarter of 2012, and a Mountain View store is planned to open in late 2012. Sunflower Farmers Market also has 33 additional retail stores located throughout Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Texas and Oklahoma (opening August 2011).
