Grocery/Bakery/Deli, General Store
A wide selection of organic and non-organic food: fruit, vegetables, nuts, beans, etc., sold loose by the pound. Also a good source of non-dairy milks, vitamins, environmentally friendly products, etc. Pretty much any vegan staple you're looking for can be found at Sunflower, and their prices usually beat competitors like Wild Oats.

Over the holiday season ('07-'08) they redid their bulk section, which used to be the best in town. Now it mostly seems to focus on granola, candies, and other things. Almost NOTHING that I used to get here is carried anymore, which means that Sunflower is no longer the one-stop grocery store it used to be for me. Almost every time I go there I discover a new item in the bulk section that is no longer carried, and now I must go to awful places like Whole Foods to get seemingly common things such as soy beans.
I guess there is more demand for the stuff they carry now rather than the "weird" stuff I used to get. Still, for me it is profoundly disappointing. I'm only slowly letting go of the bitterness!
On the plus side: This store carries pretty much all of the vegan staples, and at much lower prices than competitors like Whole Foods. The clientele is a little less annoyingly froufrou as well. If you do a lot of bulk shopping you may have to look elsewhere -- I recommend Whole Foods (which is a mere two miles away) or the co-op (on 4th Avenue).
I am huge on frozen treats. That said, it seems like Sunflower (the one on Swan, at least) has every non-dairy dessert I could ever want. Perfect place to buy your vegan sundae ingredients...well, except the soy whipped cream!
