SARASOTA- If you want to cut your grocery bills in half, sustainable, discount grocery store, Sunflower Market, has been open in Sarasota for a few weeks now.

Sarasota is their third location.

The market is a grocery liquidation, which means new inventory arrives daily. 

If you’re wondering how some of the brands you know and love are half the price at Sunflower Market, it can be because of overproduction, seasonal items, packaging changes or errors, and more. 

Customers have traveled long distances just to go to Sunflower Market over other grocery stores.

One Englewood customer stopped in the Sarasota location.

“Really the great bargains that you can find. We shop probably every other day in Englewood to stop in and we don’t leave there empty-handed ever,” said customer, Amy Creamer.

“We’ve got our second location in Englewood and just over and over people would ask 'please can you open up a store in Sarasota?' So, here we are are,” said Owner Paul Crawford.

“There’s perfectly good food that goes into the landfill everyday and there are people who really want good quality groceries for less expensive, to be affordable, and so that’s where we come in,” said Owner Lisa Crawford.

The market partners with the Fresh Access Bucks program through Feeding Florida, so when you shop in the market with your EBT card, you get a matching amount of free produce up to $10 per transaction.

And there's no limit to the number of transactions per day.
