The 29-unit Sunflower Farmers Market chain has been awarded the 2010 Hot Retailers Award from the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), which rewards companies said to be among the most original and innovative in the industry.

“We are very honored to receive this award and recognition,” said Mike Gilliland, CEO of Sunflower Farmers Market. “This award is a true tribute to our grocery store concept, which we believe has brought the best of both worlds together – low price points and natural, organic foods. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the growth of our company and the enthusiasm we have seen from our customers.”
