More Reasons to Eat with the Seasons

package icon Better Quality & Better Flavor

Because seasonal produce is likely recently picked, it hasn't been sitting on a truck or in a warehouse for an extended period. It also retains its nutritional value and rich flavor since some antioxidants, such as vitamin C and folate, rapidly decline when stored.

grower icon Supports Local and Regional Growers

When you buy peak-season produce, you're reinvesting in your community. Sprouts Farmers Market is proud to work with local and regional farmers across the country to bring you and your family the best-tasting, freshest produce around!

climate icon Good for the Planet

Seasonal growing is less harmful for the environment than growing out-of-season crops. In fact, buying seasonal produce can actually help the environment because it reduces water and land use, pollution and loss of soil.

plastics icon Good for Your Wallet

Out-of-season produce is typically trucked in from other areas that have different growing climates. So it can be expensive to relocate that produce to your local community. When produce is in season, farmers are able to harvest more crops and sell them at a lower price—which keeps more money in your wallet.

We're Proud to Bring You the Freshest Local Produce Around
