OKLAHOMA CITY -- Sunflower Farmers Market, a natural and organic grocer, announced Wednesday it will open its first store in Oklahoma in September.

The 28,000 sq. ft. store will be located at N.W. 63rd Street and N. May Avenue, less than two miles from Penn Square Mall. The store will feature fresh local produce, all-natural meats and seafood, a deli, and natural living health and wellness products.

Sunflower's executives promise the market will offer Oklahoma City customers these all natural and organic groceries at the lowest possible prices.

"We are extremely excited to be entering two new states in 2011, California and Oklahoma," said Sunflower CEO, Chris Sherrell. "We look forward to introducing these two markets to value-priced natural and organic groceries. We call it 'serious food at silly prices.'"

Sunflower has also committed to eco-friendly practices and initiatives. The store plans to use energy-efficient light fixtures, recycled and refurbished equipment and fixtures, and water-saving devices.

Sunflower Farmers Market currently has 33 stores in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and New Mexico. The new Oklahoma City store expected to bring at least 100 jobs to the area.
