Sprouts Farmers Market, a grocery that touts itself as selling fresh and organic foods, will hold its grand-opening on Wednesday April 15 just off Alabama 150 at 5250 Medford Drive.
Hoover's Sprouts is the second to open in the Birmingham area, joining the recent opening of a location in Brook Highland near U.S. 280.
The store held a job fair in March at the Pelham Civic Complex to fill 120 openings in its bakery, meat, produce, vitamin and cashier departments. The Hoover Sprouts can be reached at 263-4970 and is open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily including Sundays.
Here is some interesting information on Sprouts, courtesy of its website, sprouts.com:
The first Sprouts store opened in Chandler, Ariz. in 2002. The chain operates more than 200 stores across the United States today.
Sprouts touts itself as a grocery that focuses on the belief that “healthy living is a journey and every meal is a choice. We love to inspire, educate and empower every person to eat healthier and live a better life. This isn't just a mission. It's our passion.”
Sprouts describes itself as the grocery shopping experience that makes healthy living easy and affordable. The website says the typical Sprouts is a neighborhood grocery store offering fresh, natural and organic foods and products in an approachable setting “that feels like an old-fashioned farmers market.”
- Sprouts carries fresh fruits and vegetables, barrels of wholesome grains, nuts, sweets, full-service deli, meat and seafood counters—complete with handmade burgers and sausages. It also sells fresh baked goods, ready-to-eat meals, gourmet cheeses, vitamins and supplements and thousands of natural, organic and gluten-free groceries.
