Since opening its doors 15 years ago, Sprouts has appealed to everyday shoppers interested in fresh, natural, gluten-free, and organic products at affordable prices. Sprouts offers more than 1,800 Sprouts Brand items in fresh produce, meat and seafood, bulk foods, vitamins and supplements, a deli with freshly prepared entrees and sides, dairy, bakery, and natural body care items, all of which meet strict ingredient standards while delivering exceptional value, taste, and quality.
Sprouts is also dedicated to growing responsibly and has committed to a “Zero Waste” threshold by 2020, as defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. One way it has lowered waste is through its Sprouts Food Rescue program, which donates unsold and edible groceries, including fresh produce, from its stores and distribution centers to food banks in all of its markets. In 2016, Sprouts donated more than 19 million pounds of product, equivalent to 15 million meals. Food that is not fit for human consumption is either composted or sent to cattle ranches through Sprouts’ Food Waste to Farms program.
The new Maryland store is the company’s first opening in the mid-Atlantic region, and brings the total number of states with Sprouts locations to 16, according to a recent press release. For a list of stores by region or to see locations coming soon, visit sprouts.com/stores/search.
