If they like you, locals in Las Vegas will probably tell you that Sunflower Market has the best produce in town. One of the closest things to a real farmer’s market in the city of Las Vegas, Sunflower Market is a lot like a Henry’s or Boney’s in other states. They offer deep discount deals on seasonal produce and a selection of dry goods priced reasonably with good sale prices. It is imperative to get a sale flyer when shopping at Sunflower Market, and observe Wednesday Double Ad days, when the sales for both overlapping weeks are in effect at the same time.
