Following dozens of feverish Facebook posts and hold-your-breath rumors, it's official: A new Sprouts Farmers Market supermarket will open in Dallas' Lakewood area, at the northeast corner of Abrams Road and Mockingbird Lane.
According to a release, the store is going into Hillside Village in Lakewood, in the former Stein Mart space, which tragically closed during the pandemic.
In addition to the Sprouts, there are three other new tenants coming to the shopping center: Alchemy 43, Sugared + Bronzed, and Modern Animal.
Hillside Village has undergone a massive churn ever since it was acquired by new owners Northwood Retail in 2017. Recent openings include Susie Cakes bakery, Parlor's Handcrafted Ice Creams, toy store Froggie's 5 and 10, and Palmer's Hot Chicken.
Here are the newcomers:
Sprouts Farmers Market. Opening: fall 2022.
The Hillside Village store will be laid out in a new, simple and intuitive format that evokes the chain's farmers market roots. At 23,000 square feet, it's 20 percent smaller than the chain's standard 28,750-square-foot size, with a tighter focus on meat, seafood, plant-based products, grab & go meals, first-to-market products, and produce.
"We are thrilled to bring a wide selection of quality products that cater to a healthy lifestyle to the Dallas community," said David McGlinchey, chief strategy officer of Sprouts. "Sprouts offers fresh seasonal produce, custom-cut meats, vitamins and supplements, ready-to-eat meals, dietary options such as gluten-free or paleo and thousands of other natural, organic, non-GMO, vegan and plant-based products. We can’t wait for our Hillside Village neighbors to see what’s in store."
