Phoenix, Arizona-based Sprouts Farmers Market has announced the grand openings of locations in Tucson, Arizona, and Palmdale, California.
The Tucson location will open its newest store Oct. 28 at 4800 S. Landing Way, hosting free samples, kids games and live music. The first 200 shoppers will also receive a reusable goodie bag filled with product samples from featured brands. The Tucson community can see locally produced products on shelves, including fresh fruits and vegetables from Martori Farms, Pacific Organic and Pinto Creek Ranches.
As part of the grand opening celebration, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation is awarding $100,000 to the Community and School Garden Program at University of Arizona, which supports more than 60 school gardens throughout Tucson. During the opening weekend, students from local elementary schools will be passing out free starter kale, Swiss chard and marigold plants that were grown at their schools’ greenhouse locations with help from Sprouts.
Additionally, through Sprouts’ Food Rescue program, the store will donate groceries that are no longer fit for sale but remain edible and nutrient rich to Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
