One of my favorite things about Baton Rouge is how easy it is to be a foodie here! The love of food is basically baked into the culture here in south Louisiana, and anytime there’s a new food place in town… I’m on it!
SO, I was obviously very excited to hear that we are getting a Sprouts here in Baton Rouge (opening on June 26!!). It’s the first location in all of Louisiana, so no worries if you’re not familiar with them. Let me break down why I’m so pumped that we’re getting a Sprouts Farmers Market:
- It’s a healthy farmers market with natural, fresh and organic foods. I love the convenience of walking into a place & knowing I’m surrounded by food options that are actually good for my body!
- It’s AFFORDABLE. This is honestly a huge reason I’m so excited about Sprouts! I always hear people say they don’t like eating “healthy” because it’s so dang pricey (which I totally agree that it can be at certain places). But Sprouts offers great prices, including a produce section with prices 20-25% lower than most grocery stores.
- They focus on the quality, safety and production of the food they stock in stores. So there are lots of organic, raw, non-GMO, grass-fed, etc. options within the store. I know it’s easy to turn a blind eye to what goes on behind the scenes of our food production, but I appreciate when a market truly cares about where the products are coming from and how they are produced.
- There’s a Market Corner Deli with prepared entrees, sides, a salad bar, sushi, juice, and more goodness! I am such a girl-on-the-go so I am alllll about how convenient this is.
If you’re interested in learning more about Sprouts before it opens, you can check out their site here or Instagram here! Can’t wait for June 26 when it opens! Who’s down to go check out the Market Corner Deli with me??
Thanks to Sprouts for partnering with me on this post!
