[Vegan Mofo] Keeping It Local: Sunflower Market
This week Sunflower Market opened in Modesto. We check it out yesterday, not expecting much. In the past other stores have let us down - offering little in the way of vegan products or not going with their name...
We were happy to see Sunflower Market has a lot in the way of vegan food and ingredients - the prices were way cheaper than a lot of stores in the area. They also had some hard to find vegan products. It is like a mini Whole Foods market. It was packed and I did not get to take many pictures - I started having a panic attack (crowds do that to me - plus the feeling of being overwhelmed & hungry). We bought some much needed ingredients for dinner and I discovered the coolest thing ever (well, one of the coolest things!):
At first I thought it was a honey station - I was like ick, but noticed they had two types of agave! I got a traditional honey bear full of agave! Sweet! I have never seen this before and was thrilled!
I am going back tomorrow and have coupons ready from the site. You can customize the coupons sent to you by diet type - they have vegetarian and vegan! Yay!
