Sprouts Farmers Market the ultimate grocery destination for healthy and affordable holiday meal

PHOENIX, Ariz., 2016-Nov-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — With consumer interest in healthy food on the rise, Sprouts Farmers Market is the ultimate grocery destination to shop for a delicious, healthy and affordable holiday meal. Now through the end of the year, shoppers can find a wide selection of quality meats, fully prepared meals, catering trays, wines and cheeses and great last-minute gift ideas at Sprouts. Sprouts is even making it easy to give back to those in need throughout the holiday season with a special donation program to support local food banks.

“Healthy holiday meals shouldn’t have to be expensive to be memorable,” said Sprouts president and chief operating officer Jim Nielsen. “Sprouts’ better-for-you products provide an affordable, one-stop shop for busy families and all of their holiday needs.”

For customers planning to create family recipes from scratch, Sprouts offers hundreds of organic, natural, gluten-free, vegan and plant-based ingredients. Sprouts’ Old Tyme Butcher Shop is loaded with quality main course holiday meats, like organic or natural turkeys, spiral-sliced hams and USDA Choice or Prime grade presidential cut beef rib roasts. Sprouts’ fresh, never frozen and certified organic turkeys are antibiotic and hormone free, minimally processed and contain no artificial ingredients. They roam freely and are fed an organic diet. Sprouts’ fresh, never frozen natural turkeys are also raised cage-free and are minimally processed with no artificial ingredients and no added hormones.

Shoppers looking to save time can reserve a fresh, never frozen organic or natural turkey, or one of four fully prepared holiday meals in store or online (www.sprouts.com/meals-and-catering/thanksgiving-turkey-orders). Fully prepared meals range from $29.99 to $79.99 and include a roasted boneless turkey breast (serves two), a natural whole turkey meal (serves six to eight) and a USDA choice beef rib roast meal (serves six to eight).
