Sprouts Farmers Market will open a new store in Orlando, Florida at Colonial Plaza at 2530 East Colonial Drive on Dec. 8.
Grand Opening Day Events
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held before doors open at 7 a.m. Every customer on grand opening day will receive a free reusable bag with purchase.
From 5 to 7 p.m. on grand opening evening, shoppers will have the chance to meet Danny Seo, author of the new cookbook Naturally, Delicious Dinners and Emmy Award-Winning host of NBC’s Naturally, Danny Seo. The first 150 customers will receive a signed copy of the new cookbook furnished by Bob’s Red Mill, and can enjoy samples of sushi from Marukan Vinegar, wine samples from Bonterra Organic Wines, snacks from Mary’s Gone Crackers, and natural product giveaways from Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day. Samples and giveaways will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
“My new cookbook is designed for those who want to live healthily and choose foods mindfully, and Sprouts’ farmers market atmosphere and abundance of fresh products full of goodness is a huge source of inspiration when I’m in the kitchen,” Seo said. “Cooking should be organic, creative, and delicious, and I’m looking forward to showing shoppers how to achieve just that with meals that are packed with nutrition and taste.”
Sprouts App and Weekend Savings
From Dec. 10 – 12, new customers with the Sprouts app can clip a digital coupon to receive 20 percent off one purchase when they set the Orlando Colonial Plaza location as their store. Through the app, shoppers can view the weekly ad and save more than $100 with digital coupons every month.
Supporting the Community
Through Sprouts’ Food Rescue program, the new store will donate groceries and produce no longer fit for sale but that remains perfectly edible and nutrient rich to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. In 2020, Sprouts donated an equivalent of approximately 23 million meals to those in need through the program.
The Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation recently awarded IDEAS for Us with a grant in support of their flagship Fleet Farming program which transforms local underutilized lawn space into micro-farmlettes. The program teaches community members across Orlando how to grow their own food while building a local food system. With the grant, Fleet Farming has enhanced its operations with a new farm pick-up truck and commercial kitchen equipment to process and store produce to sell at the organization’s farmers market.
Earlier this year, Sprouts opened a fresh distribution center in Orlando to serve all of its stores in the state, enabling shorter travel times and the ability to source a wider selection local and organic produce.
