Sprouts Farmers Market opened just over a month ago in Franklin. The company continues to be one of the fastest-growing retailers in the country, announcing new locations it will open in the third quarter of 2016. Sprouts will open a total of 36 stores in 2016, 24 of which have already been announced. While most of the new locations are in California, there will be another middle Tennessee Sprouts, opening later this year in Murfeesboro, at 143 Wendelwood Drive.

Grand opening dates and other details will be shared at a later date. Sprouts offers consumers a complete healthy grocery store experience featuring fresh produce, bulk foods, dairy, meat and seafood, bakery, deli, vitamins, body care and more. Shoppers will find an abundant selection of fresh fruits and vegetables and barrels of wholesome grains, nuts and sweets. The bright, open stores showcase fresh-baked goods, eclectic beer and wine, and thousands of natural, organic and gluten-free groceries. Sprouts’ on-site butchers help customers with special cuts of meat or seafood or handmade burgers and sausages. Sprouts’ knowledgeable service and low prices offer customers a unique shopping experience.

Sprouts is committed to sustainable growth that respects social and environmental well-being. As a part of this effort, the Sprouts Food Rescue Program donates unsold and edible, but not marketable, groceries to local food banks. Relief agencies pick up this food, which would otherwise go to waste, and distribute it to families in need. In 2015, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated approximately 14 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 12 million meals, reducing hunger and the company’s environmental footprint.
