Sprouts is now open at 15793 Old Columbia Pike in the Burtonsville Crossing shopping center.

This is the county’s first Sprouts location- a grocery store chain headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. The grocer offers a wide selection of natural and organic foods, including fresh produce, bulk foods, vitamins and supplements, packaged groceries, meat and seafood, deli, baked goods, dairy products, frozen foods, natural body care and household items. Fortune included Sprouts on its list of the World’s Most Admired Companies in 2018 and 2019.

Per Montgomery County: “Montgomery County Executive, Marc Elrich, County Councilmembers and representatives from the District 14 Delegation of the Maryland General Assembly will gather for a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony with community members at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 19, to celebrate the grand opening of Sprouts Farmers Market in Burtonsville. The market will serve as the anchor for the Burtonsville Crossing Shopping Center.

There also will be a store-opening ceremony at 6:45 a.m. The store will open at 7 a.m.

Sprouts Farmers Market is a significant destination for shoppers along I-95, Route 198, and Route 29.

Burtonsville residents have waited years for redevelopment in the area. Sprouts will be the first significant step and will provide healthier food options.

The project has been in the works since 2018 when County Executive Elrich engaged with EDENS, District 14 Team and Burtonsville community advocates, The collaborative discussions created exciting developments that led to the major grocer coming to the area.
