Sprouts Ellicott City is OPEN!

Sprouts Ellicott City is OPEN!

This post is part of a sponsored collaboration with Sprouts.

You guys I am SO excited because the BRAND SPANKIN' NEW Sprouts Farmers Market is OFFICIALLY open in Ellicott City! Last night I was able to attend a preview event where we received a tour of the new store which is absolutely incredible. I was truly blown away by their produce and specialty goods selection. Finding so many new (for me), unique products is super exciting if you're a foodie! I could've roamed the aisles for hours (and plan to go back to do so ASAP).  

First of all, I was honestly so impressed by the staff at Sprouts. I overheard multiple store associates asking customers if they needed any help or to let them know if they were curious about products. Something that's so nice about Sprouts is if you are curious about a product, you're welcome to ask one of the friendly team members who can help you find the right product to fit your needs, or help you sample a product right on the spot! This is great since there are so many unique products to try! 

Something else that I found unique about Sprouts was their in-house butcher. While I am not a huge meat eater, having access to a butcher in a place as convenient as a grocery store is really awesome. I am basically clueless when it comes to red meat, so I am sure I'll be asking their butcher lots of questions when I'm buying steaks for Yale this summer! You can count on Sprouts to make healthy living for less super easy with fresh produce at the center of the store, fresh meat and seafood at The Butcher Shop and The Fish Market, a full-service deli with convenient and high-quality prepared foods, bulk foods where you can purchase as little as you need or as much as you want, an extensive selection of vitamins and supplements, dairy, bakery, beer and wine and much, much more!

Upon my visit, I was able to sample so many delicious goods from some of their vendors doing demos! I always appreciate stores that provide this because it gives you a chance to try something you may not otherwise! Plus, they're always running INSANE deals throughout the store. My mouth essentially dropped when I saw 2 for $1 avocados. WHAT?!! Unheard of. 

Next time I go into Sprouts, I'll definitely be spending more time browsing their body and beauty section. Finding new skincare and beauty products is basically a hobby of mine these days, and they had a pretty incredible selection! I am absolutely thrilled to have a store like this so close to my house!
