The new Sprouts Market opened yesterday at Westheimer and Kirkwood, and I stopped by after work out of curiosity.
I had really been looking forward to it as an alternative to my usual but always crowded HEB on the opposite corner. I was disappointed. The produce section is nice, but pricey. The meat looked good, but pricey. The cheese and deli is stocking Boars Head, but selection is limited and it's pricey.
I bought carrots and eggs because they were on sale and I was out. I did NOT buy the turbinado sugar that I'm also out of because it was...
I have to say that I liked the Fresh Market, (that opened last week on Memorial), better and I expected just the opposite. Sprouts is much closer to me, but Fresh Market is just as convenient if I'm stopping by on my way home from work. Neither will become my regular grocery store.
The best thing about Sprouts is that it will hopefully pull some people from my always crowded HEB. If it doesn't, it probably won't be around long.
