A mixed-use located at the front door of the Morningside and Lenox Park neighborhoods between Buckhead and Midtown will be home to a new natural foods grocer.

Atlanta Business Chronicle reported Thursday that Sprouts Farmers Market will be the anchor tenant of a 6-acre project on Piedmont Road near Cheshire Bridge Road.

The project from Fuqua Development LLC, which will feature 300 apartments and 34,000 square feet of retail, is scheduled to break ground this spring at the site home to the aging Rock Springs shopping center.

Arizona-based Sprouts Farmers Markets LLC has focused on metro Atlanta for its expansion into the Southeast region.

According to ABC, the $2 billion organic grocery chain plans 15 stores in the metro area over the next three years and possibly a distribution center. Read more from ABC here.

Great news. They're not wasting any time getting the work started either.

Great. When will it open? Whole paycheck and Trader Joes lack an extensive organic selection. They have very little organic produce lately and getting worse. Will someone open a 100% organic please?

Reality, Buford Highway Farmer's Market has a nice selection f organic produce. Unlike the Dekalb Farmers Market it is all in one continuous organic section which I find easier to shop.

Great Thanks. Just hoping for a closer intown venue.If I had time I would open one.I am baffled when I ask whole paycheck why they don't have more organic and yet they market themselves as such. They say not enough supply as not enough organic farmers. Seems like with all the unemployment and talk about jobs the gov should start organic farming vocational classes in many places in Georgia public schools. What a great opportunity to pursue if our government would support things of this nature for future generations. Would sure help the obesity issue and healthcare

Good prices at Sprouts. On Wednesday they let their sales ads overlap so you get a lot of sale items those days.
