Our Mission

Our mission is to be Your Grocery Store.  Whether you live in Woodstock or a surrounding community;  if you are passing through or staying for the weekend or season, you are always welcome at Sunflower Natural Foods Market.

The food and other fine goods we offer you are for you.  You are the reason we work so very hard at everything we do.  From fresh, organic smoothies, to bulk coffee, locally raised beef, to fluoride-free toothpaste, we strongly believe that it does "take a village" to raise not only a child but to nourish the whole family & the whole community.  We care about your health and always want you to have an enjoyable shopping experience, finding new and different ways to nourish yourself and the ones you love.  Thank you.  You are so very important to us!

Shop Healthy, Live Healthy!

How it all began...

Sunflower began as a journey for Bob Whitcomb, in Woodstock, back in June of 1978.  Peace, Love and Granola were still going strong and Bob felt that a source of healthy living for the community was something special that would unite people for the common good.  Years of hands-on experience & a degree in Food Service Management, Bob created the Food Oasis that Sunflower continues to be today!

giving back

Part of what makes Sunflower, "Sunflower" is our desire to engage, connect & support our local community and larger causes that impact the environment, this beautiful planet we are blessed to walk upon.

Take part in our monthly charitable drives!  Each month, we focus on local charity.   For every rounded up purchase, Sunflower matches that rounded up amount & donates in kind to the featured local charity.  See your Associate for details!

Sunflower donates to charities of all sizes, all year & we believe the act of giving gives everyone purpose.  Pay it Forward!
