I guess he couldn't stay out of the grocery store biz. It's been 30 years since he launched Sun Harvest.
If only HE could've got something going downtown. Oh well.

I was just pondering the thought of them putting one in the new developments downtown.

Great minds think alike! I too thought this would be ideal for downtown.

Seeing as how the tab says "LOCATIONS," I don't think it can possibly be ruled out, especially at a later date once more feet are on the streets of downtown or we see a new parking garage go up.
Also, could this be the "market" we always see in the plans for Eilan or the Rim?

Yeah, Green Fields Market is def. a chain. They're getting their toes wet in Stone Oak and will venture out from there.

Yes.

1. The entire top middle section of the Marriott Rivercenter, along with the signage, is deleted.
2. The Marriott logo on the side of the MRivercenter is deleted.
3. The Marriott logo on the side of the MRiverwalk is deleted.
4. The GH logo is deleted.

I know they have to do that for legal reasons I'm sure...but still funny

New natural grocery

New natural grocery

By Vicki Vaughan - Express-News

As Tracy Wolff surveyed her new domain Monday, a natural foods grocery on Stone Oak Parkway that will be opening at 7 a.m. today, her enthusiasm was evident.

She walked through Green Fields Market's section of 500 bulk-food items that range from the prosaic, such as sugar, to the exotic, dried mango and wasabi, while employees put last-minute touches on items in the 15,000-square-foot store. The bulk-food section, like the produce section, lets shoppers bag their selections.

“Buying in the bulk section can save families money because you can buy just the amount you need,” Wolff said. She showed off a bit of dried cantaloupe, saying, “I can't wait to try this.”

With the opening of the store at 19239 Stone Oak Parkway, Wolff and her husband, Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, are back in the grocery business after a decade's absence. (Tracy and Nelson Wolff, along with other Wolff family members, decided to sell their San Antonio-based natural food store chain, Sun Harvest Farms, in 1999.)

“It's really exciting to see this come together,” Tracy Wolff said. “We've been planning this for two years and have been intensely involved for at least a year and a half.”

In building the store, the Wolffs partnered with Tom Turner Jr. and his wife, Billie, spending an undisclosed sum on the venture.

“I've been wanting to get into this business for a long time,” said Tom Turner, who walked through the store Monday. The Turner family has long years of retail experience through their ownership of convenience stores at their chain of TETCO gasoline stations.

Green Fields Market's buyers will focus on purchasing locally or Texas-grown natural foods. It's also designed to be a neighborhood store, where patrons can get in and out quickly, Wolff said.

“I'd like to change the concept of fast food by having healthy choices that don't take a lot of time,” said Wolff, who is Green Fields' president.

Organic foods aren't known for being inexpensive, but Wolff promises that prices will be competitive.

But for those who want to splurge, Green Fields can accommodate. The store stocks several items that Wolff said aren't available elsewhere in San Antonio, such as Akaushi beef, natural beef from cattle raised in Texas whose lineage is Japanese.

Green Fields took over a space formerly occupied by a number of small businesses at The Shops at Stone Oak.

“We spent a lot of time redoing it,” Wolff said. “The floors were uneven, and the lighting was terrible.”

The store held a job fair last month, hiring 50 full-time workers and 25 part-timers from pool of 400 applicants, Wolff said.

Green Fields Market will hold a grand opening starting at 10 a.m. Oct. 6.
