Ft. Worth Ave. Development: A Trip to Cox Farms

Cox Farms, a Duncanville grocer specializing in fresh produce and natural foods, has signed a letter of intent to anchor the Sylvan/Thirty development that will be a highlight of the Ft. Worth Ave. corridor.  Because I started my working life as a “sacker” at a Kroger store in Houston, I had to visit the store and decide for myself how it would fit into the eagerly-awaited Sylvan/Thirty center.  My visit confirmed that it specializes in produce but it also has other food products, both organic and non-organic, and sells bulk items too.  The service is friendly and I think it will be welcomed by Oak Cliff.

    I shopped at Cox Farms Market for 17 years before I moved to North Oak Cliff two years ago. I didn’t mind at all how the check-out areas were laid out. The produce and bulk foods are exceptionally good. Moreover, I got to know the owner and the staff and all are very nice. I’m glad they will have a second store here because it’s going to be nice to spend my $$ here than driving to WF.

    I agree and it didn’t bother me except that for a place that’s tight on space it didn’t seem to make good use of the space like the rest of the store. Not a big deal at all though.

    You’re right, the checkout area is not a standard row of cash registers but I thought the arrangement added to the informal, produce-stand atmosphere.

    I went to check it out last Saturday and I thought it was great. Their checkout area was a bit weird and it was a bit of a drag that they only sell frozen meat but overall it’s going to be a great addition to Oak Cliff.
