What does “local” mean to Sprouts Farmers Market?

At Sprouts, we define “local” as made or produced in my state or within 500 miles. The ability to eat locally varies depending on a region’s production capacity. People living in areas that are agriculturally productive year-round may have an easier time sourcing food that is grown in their state than those in arid or colder regions. Our goal is always to offer great value and strike the right balance among quality, flavor and price.
