Sacramento is fertile ground for our growing specialty-market scene. Add one more choice: Sprouts Farmers Market plans to open in Roseville on April 6 at 6760 Stanford Ranch Road, in the Stanford Ranch Plaza in Roseville (916-774-1120).
Corporate HQ in Arizona has some specials planned at its newest store, including:
- The first 500 shoppers to buy merchandise will get coupons for 10 free sandwiches.
- Make a purchase and sign up for the Sprouts mailing list for the chance to be among the 50 customers a week who will receive "a 100 percent rebate of their purchases" (through April).
- On opening day, all purchases will be bagged in free reusable totes.
- Many of the store's most popular items will be on sale through April 10.
