After years of anticipation, New Tampa is finally getting a green grocer.

Sprouts Farmers Market, a popular Phoenix-based food chain that offers more than 19,000 healthy products, of which 90 percent are natural or organic, is coming to The Villages of Hunter’s Lake project currently beginning construction on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. across the street from the Hunter’s Green community.

The Villages of Hunter’s Lake is being built on roughly 14 acres of land, and will include a 30,000-sq.-ft. Cultural Center, a four-story, 241-unit multi-family project called The Haven at Hunter’s Lake, a retail shopping strip center that will include a restaurant and a dog park.

But a new Sprouts store may end up being the jewel of the project, with all the requests over the years by residents for a green or specialty grocer.

Sprouts announced recently it was adding the New Tampa location, as well as others in Seminole and Stuart.

The nearest Sprouts to New Tampa is the first one ever built in Florida, in Carrollwood. There are five other locations in Florida, located on S. Dale Mabry in South Tampa, Valrico, Sarasota, Palm Harbor and Winter Park.

We’ll have more details in our story in the next issue of the New Tampa Neighborhood News, hitting mailboxes Jan. 25.
