Sunflower Farmers Market Gets a New Flower Name

The Colorado-based Sunflower Farmers Market in Plano has changed its name to Newflower Farmers Market. According to Ed at the location in Plano, the company lost the right to use the name Sunflower to a food distribution center that owns the right to the name in Texas. So, they renamed it Newflower, which is Sunflowers actual corporate name. I have not been to the Plano store, but a gal in the D office loves to shop there. “It’s like a poor man’s Whole Foods,” she said. “I wish there was one close to us.” She is going to get her wish—the next store in our area will open March 17 in the old Carnival Food Store space on Henderson. Tomorrow in Austin. (So many flowers, so little time.)

  1. Anyone who has stepped inside a Sprouts will find *flower a familiar site. It’s practically identical down to the layout of the store. The Plano location has some really good deals but Sprouts still beats them for freshness and variety from what I’ve seen so far. Comparing either to Whole Foods is like saying Toyota is a poor man’s Lexus (except they are not owned by the same company and it doesn’t cost you $150 to get your oil changed at whole foods.)
