Sunflower grocery to open in former Longs Drug store space

Southern Colorado’s first Sunshine Farmers Market is scheduled to open May 27 at 1730 Dublin Blvd.

The natural and organic grocer signed a 10-year lease with options on the space, which was purchased during April by Golden Properties LLC for $2.6 million.

Sunflower’s owners also founded one of Colorado’s first successful organic grocery chains – Alfalfa’s, which later became Wild Oats.
