The new Sprouts Farmers Market grocery store in Durham is having their Grand Opening on Wednesday, August 22! There will be giveaways, samples, discounts and every customer will receive one free reusable bag with purchase.

This store will be the fourth Sprouts location in North Carolina and the second in the Triangle.

The new store is located at 105 W. NC Highway 54, Durham, NC at the intersection of Hwy. 54 and Fayetteville Road. This location is 30,000-square-feet and will employ approximately 140 people. The hours will be 7 am - 10 pm each day.

The Durham store will offer locally made products from North Carolina-based producers, including Carolina Kettle Chips, Big Spoon Roasters Nut Butters, Little Red Wagon Granola, Nello’s Pasta Sauce, Mountain Ridge Honey and Ran-Lew Dairy.

One of the fabulous things about Sprouts is that they have a commitment to “zero waste” and the new Durham store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. In 2017, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated 23 million pounds of product, equivalent to 19 million meals. Food that is not fit for donation is provided to local cattle farms and composting facilities.

Sprouts will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony that is open to the public just before the doors open at 7 a.m.
