Sprouts Farmers Market to Open Cave Creek Store Feb. 19

Sprouts Farmers Market will open in Cave Creek Wednesday, Feb. 19 to “expand access to affordable, healthy choices.” Sprouts is known for its welcoming store layout inspired by farmers markets that features fresh produce at the center of the store, an expansive bulk foods section, and an extensive vitamin department focused on wellness.

More than 100 new team members will be led by store manager Tom Critz who has been with Sprouts in various leadership positions since 2011 and most recently managed the store at Scottsdale and Pinnacle Peak Roads.

“Tom is a enthusiastic and dedicated leader whose knowledge of the fresh and healthy products throughout our stores inspires team members and creates lasting relationships with our guests,” said Sprouts regional director, Gary Dahl.

To celebrate the new store, Sprouts is giving away a classic beach cruiser to inspire one lucky fan to get outside and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Customers can enter to win through Feb. 18 by visiting sprouts.com/cavecreek.

Grand Opening Details:

  • A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held before doors open at 7am.
  • The first 200 shoppers will receive 20 percent off their initial total purchase.
  • Every customer on grand opening day will receive a free reusable bag with purchase.

As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Foothills Food Bank 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.

Celebrate All Things ‘Local’ at Arizona Fall Fest

Local First Arizona will once again celebrate everything local at its Arizona Fall Fest. The free, family-friendly celebration features food from many of Arizona’s finest restaurants, a beer and wine garden, booths for local merchants and live entertainment.

Formerly known as the Certified Local Fall Festival, the Arizona Fall Fest will have even more Arizona flavor and fun this year. Valley residents are invited to show their Arizona pride and join the community at this annual festival. The Arizona Fall Fest is presented by GoDaddy, Sprouts Farmers Market and Salt River Project.

The festival will feature more than 200 vendors, all local to Arizona. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the folks behind favorite local businesses from across the state. In addition, enjoy food samples from some of the best Arizona restaurants and food trucks. Sampling tickets will be available for $1 each.

Live entertainment will take place on multiple stages showcasing exclusively Arizona talent including cultural groups from across the state. And dozens of locally-made beers, wines and spirits will be available to sample in the Hensley Beverage Garden (21 and over only). Each beverage sample requires two sampling tickets ($1 per ticket).

The official ‘Kid Zone,’ made possible by Sprouts Farmers Market and Tuft & Needle, will feature crafts, games and activities for children of all ages and families. And finally, head to the Arizona Sports Zone to play games, win prizes, and interact with several of Arizona’s professional sports teams.
