Sprouts Farmers Market has come to Round Rock!
There were radio ads, and TV ads, and the manager came in to the shop and rented some cow costumes, but, somehow, I didn't grasp that the new Sprouts was going in where Albertson's used to be. It really is nice to see a grocery store in there again, and what a store it is!
I am guessing that a lot of the incredible deals they offered this weekend are opening specials, but still! Avocados are three for a dollar, and every one of them perfect! Nice, snappy gingersnaps, two 14 oz. bags for three dollars. I was seduced by the delicious aroma of fresh bell peppers, and bought one.
Some of their meat was very cheap. Then again, probably a special, but I got some yummy looking pork chops for $1.49/lb!
I was a bit disappointed in their selection of breads; the only ordinary bread they carried was Mrs Baird's, and they didn't have one that was 100% whole wheat. Maybe they were just out...but I don't want to pay over $4 a loaf for bread that would grow if I planted it. I just want something to wrap around some Marmite.
I'll tell you what, though...it's less than half a mile from my home, and their prices are very reasonable. I will probably get my produce there, at the very least.
My kind of store!
