GreenAcres was recently featured on our very own KSHB-TV, Action News! Follow the link below to see the clip! The subject of the story was the body’s adjustment to all this sustained heat. As the temperatures soar, our bodies are less likely to crave heavy carbs or warm creamy soups, and more likely to ask for things like fresh produce or cool juices. Assistant manager Kasey Rausch explains that natural coolers, like peppermint iced tea, fresh juicy cantaloupe or other melons, fresh peaches, or coconut water can not just help to cool you down, but can replenish some much-needed nutrients and electrolytes.
Next time you’re in, just ask any associate and they’ll be able to point you in the direction of these life-saving, heat-busting items in the store. You can also enjoy a handmade smoothie or fresh pressed juice from the deli, or try any of our cool and delicious salads from the deli cold case!

We're working hard to provide you with the finest quality prducts. Long before organics were mainstream, GreenAcres Market in Wichita prided itself with the largest certified organic produce department in the area. That pride and commitment has not wavered, and has been translated to our mission here at GreenAcres in Kansas City. Today you’ll find organic products all over the store: in the produce department, in the delicious food the deli serves every day, on the grocery shelves, in the bulk department…just about everywhere! And it’s not just about organic. We are pleased to offer customers cage-free eggs, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, certified humane, local and heritage meats, non-GMO baked goods, gluten free products of every variety, dairy-free milks, vegetarian meat substitutes, paraben, casein, and cruelty-free health and beauty products, raw foods, superfoods…and so much more!
"We here at GreenAcres so love what we do," says Barb Hoffmann, GreenAcres owner and drive behind the whole project. "We love the industry, we love the products, we love the freshness, and most of all we love being here for our customers. Our goal is to stay on the cutting edge of what's available: from sustainable fish, organic, natural, heritage, and grass fed local meats, hand-picked specialty cookies and crackers...everything we can think of! We're constantly traveling around the country, seeking out new items to bring in for our customers to enjoy."
We want healthy living to be a priority for you and your family, and we want it to be accessible to everyone. "We are constantly negotiating deals so we can bring you affordable prices," says Barb. "We are dropping all our dairy prices this week, so be sure and check out the new values!" To find our in-store specials, look in our monthly newsletters, watch out for our bi-weekly ads in the Eagle on special drastically reduced items, look for Everday Low Price Tags on our shelves...and now we're introducing our new price-slashing good deal: Bonus Buys! This month it's 35% off New Chapter's Bone Strangth calcium supplement.
If you’ve never visited, or if it’s been a while since you’ve been in to the store, you’ll be sure to find something you need, something you want, and something you didn’t know you needed until you sampled it in our store. So drop by, chat with our friendly staff, kick-start a new diet regimen, re-vamp your refrigerator, or just find out which of those funny greens is kale.
We hope to see more of you in the store and online! Watch for our events, classes, and promotions on our blog, on Facebook, in our monthly newsletter, sign up for the weekly e-newsletter, or simply follow us on Twitter. No matter what medium you prefer, we want to connect with you!
Thanks for your continued support, KC! Have a great day!
