Greetings, I was an original team member of Alfalfa's Market and have continued to work in the natural foods industry. People of Boulder would really like to have a locally owned store that reflects the health and environmental policies of the community. "Buy local" is repeated daily by the people of Boulder. So many of the choices for natural foods shopping in this town have all had the same products and prices and are owned by Whole Foods. Alfalfa's Market was a unique store, a leader in the industry and could rise again. People of Boulder would love the opportunity to bring back the Alfalfa's experience - because it was more than a store, but the heart of a community. Sincerely, Brigitte Mars
