Healthfood Stores - Non-Existent in Northern Utah?

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find organic and natural foods in our area without much success. There is a Whole Foods in Salt Lake, and it’s huge, but who wants to drive all the way down there to buy a few groceries? Not me. WalMart has a few things, Harmon’s has a good selection of organic produce. There is a Good Earth on Riverdale Rd., but it’s kind of small (and mostly prepackaged stuff).  Costco has organic eggs for much cheaper than anywhere else. I looked up several health-food stores online and took some time checking them out and they no longer exist. This is another reason why we’re not going gang-busters with this whole eating better thing. Some things are just not available in our area. I’m looking forward to buying from farmer’s markets this summer.

  1. How close is the nearest "Sunflower Market"? I really like them. They have great produce, tons of healthy food, and they are reasonably priced. Most of all, they are small enough I do not feel intimidated and/or overwhelmed when I go there.
