Sunflower to Sprout Second Santa Fe Store

Sunflower Farmers Market plans to open its second store in Santa Fe, N.M., on Jan. 13, an occasion that will mark the 28th location for the Phoenix-based natural and organic foods retailer.

This newest opening comes just after the company revealed $35 million in incremental financing, which it plans to use for growth in existing markets in Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Texas and New Mexico. Sunflower forecasts operating more than 50 stores by 2013.

“We are eager to further expand our ‘Serious Food at Silly Prices’ grocery store concept in Santa Fe,” said Mike Gilliland, Sunflower founder and CEO. “We bring a high-quality, affordable grocery option to residents. Our produce, meats and seafood are delivered fresh daily, offering a superior way to grocery shop, especially during tough economic times.”

Sunflower’s existing Santa Fe store opened August 2009 in the De Vargas Shopping Center.

The grocer operates 27 stores in Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah and Texas.
