Sprouts Farmers Market to open stores in Mission, Overland Park

Sprouts is on the way to Mission.
  • Sprouts is on the way to Mission.
Just as restaurant executives once decided the Kansas City area was badly in need of burger joints (just a heads up to execs, we're fairly meated up these days), organic and specialty grocers are being drawn to this market in bunches. And now you can add Sprouts Farmers Market as a potential place to fill your grocery list.

The Mission Gateway development, originally planned as a site for a new aquarium, will now have a Walmart Supercenter (at the intersection of Johnson Drive and Roe) and a Sprouts Farmers Market. The grocery chain headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, began as a fruit stand more than 70 years ago. There are now close to 150 stores in eight states. Sprouts focuses on fruits and vegetables with a large produce section and organic selections. A second location is in the works at 135th Street and Metcalf in Overland Park's Corbin Park development.

Anybody been to a Sprouts and care to share a report from their grocery cart?
