SPROUTS Farmer's Market - My new favorite place to shop!!
Sprouts is a newly expanding (or exploding) chain of indoor farmer's market type of grocery stores.
They are sort of like Whole Foods at Trader Joe's pricing.
There is one opening within walking distance from my home in Santa Clarita, but not until September 1st.
In the meantime, I was able to visit the newly opened location in Pasadena.
I was like a kid in a candy store!! For those of my peeps that know me well, I tend to be fairly frugal when it comes to spending money on clothes, cars, and things that are typically "material".
But when it comes to food, I don't minding spending a few extra bucks on good, wholesome, REAL food. I feel it is one of the most important things you can invest in because it dictates your health, happiness and productivity in your life.
But I'm thrilled with Sprouts, because now I can get the best of both worlds - good food and good prices!
On my trip to the Pasadena store, they were still under the Grand Opening phase, so they had some unbelievable promotions going on. Broccoli crowns at 49 cents a pound, chocolate almond milk not only at a great price but buy one get one free!!
I had brought 2 re-usable bags into the store with me, and ended up having to break down and use 3 more of the stores paper bags because I ended up buying so much.
Right now, Sprouts has locations in California, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. And I'm hoping that they keep on expanding because I feel it is SO important for people to have good, healthy food available to them at affordable prices.
