Phoenix, Arizona-based Sprouts Farmers Market will open in Marlton, New Jersey, on Wednesday, June 5. The new store will be the first Sprouts in the state.
Sprouts will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Marlton location at 227 Route 73 South before doors open at 7 a.m. The public is invited to join the festivities and shop among thousands of healthy items offered throughout the more than 33,000-s.f. store.
The first 200 shoppers will receive 20 percent off their initial total purchase, and muffin and coffee samples will be served to everyone in line before the doors open. Every customer on grand opening day will receive one free reusable bag with purchase.
Weekend shoppers are invited to explore new natural and organic products during Taste of Sprouts on Saturday, June 8, when guest favorite and trending items, including a selection of exclusive Sprouts Brand products, will be sampled throughout the store.
Local selection and zero waste
Sprouts has been a driving force for making healthy food affordable and accessible since its inception and has paved the way for numerous natural brands. The Marlton store will offer locally made products from brands such as Hoboken Farms, Joe Tea, Naturi Yogurt and Love Beets.
As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Food Bank of South Jersey through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. In 2018, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated 27 million pounds of product, equivalent to 23 million meals. Food that is not fit for donation is provided to local cattle farms and composting facilities. Sprouts’ evolving “zero waste” initiatives help minimize food waste while reducing the impact of hunger and the company’s environmental footprint.

Sprouts offers a complete shopping experience that includes an array of fresh produce in the heart of the store, a deli with prepared entrees and side dishes, The Butcher Shop and The Fish Market at Sprouts, an expansive vitamins and supplements department and more.
