Maybe you’re an old pro at shopping Sprouts Farmers Market. Or, maybe, just maybe you’re like me and you’ve recently discovered Sprouts supermarket. I know, I know. Where have I been?! The truth is, that Sprouts is actually still pretty new to the Pacific Northwest. In fact, there’s only one store open right now north of Seattle, but in just about 3 weeks, everything will be changing. Sprouts will be opening up their second Washington location in Lynnwood on February 6th!

As I mentioned in my previous post about Sprouts, they are famous for their farm-fresh produce. Even better? It’s priced 20-25% below supermarket prices, on average.

Something else that you will notice is that produce is prominently displayed at the center of the store.

Shopping Tips for Saving Big at Sprouts Grocery Store  // Seattle Lifestyle Blog

Scoop up Big Savings in the Bulk Department

The bulk bin was the first category in my grocery shopping list suggestions and for good reason! You can save BIG by shopping by the ounce or pound on staples like grains, granolas, spices, nuts, sweets and much, much more. Don’t need a whole lot of something? No problem! Buy as little as you need, or as much as you want. Less packaging in the Bulk Department means that more savings get passed on to you!  

PRO TIP: Trying to be more eco-conscious? Bring your own container for bulk foods. Just have a Sprouts team member weigh it before you fill it up!
