Locally owned grocer Cox Farms Market is expanding to Oak Cliff. The organic market, which has a store in Duncanville, has leased 11,000 square feet in the Sylvan|Thirty development at Sylvan and Ft. Worth Avenue, former site of the Alamo Motel.

“With its focus on farm-fresh produce and natural food products, its local family heritage, diverse customer appeal  and its strong history of community involvement, Cox Farms Market is the perfect anchor for our project,” Sylvan|Thirty developer  Brent Jackson said in a prepared statement. “This is not your typical big-box retailer.”

The original Cox Farms opened 20 years ago on South Main in Duncanville, and the Ft. Worth Avenue store will be the company’s second store.

It is expected to open in Fall 2012.
