Sprouts Far Out

SPROUTS FAR OUT The Sprouts Farmers Market grocery chain’s long-awaited Houston-area landing will begin with 3 outside the Beltway locations next year. Sprouts scout Ed Page of UCR MoodyRambin Page says leases have already been signed for a 25,300-sq.-ft. spot at the southwest corner of Cinco Ranch Blvd. and Peek Rd.; for a 29,000-sq.-ft. store at FM 529 and Hwy. 6 in the Copperfield Village Shopping Center; and for a 28,000-sq.-ft. location off the Tomball Pkwy. at Spring Cypress Rd. in the Spring Cypress Village shopping center. Page tells reporter Shaina Zucker leases are being negotiated for several other sites. The southwest organic-friendly chain swallowed up competitor Sunflower Farmers Markets earlier this year.

  • The Copperfield location must be taking the place of the closed Randall’s. I wish them well – that shopping center has really declined without an anchor store.

  • Geez, if this is the same Sprouts as we have in Corpus (masquerading as a poor man’s Whole Foods), you may as well just put in another convenience store.

  • Copperfield location is about half the old Randalls. Spring Cypress Village appears to be newly built shopping center. Can’t picture where the Cinco Ranch site is/what it’s replacing. Help?

  • Sprouts took over an old Safeway store in my parents’ neighborhood in Arizona and has done well with it. It’s heavy on produce, isn’t terribly expensive, and has an excellent deli. Most of their stores I’ve seen have averaged around the size of the older HEB “pantry” stores.

  • Sprouts Market please come to Baytown we meed A up scale produce market.
