Sprouts Farmers Market said Monday that it is hiring for two Florida locations for planned debuts in January. Cardenas Markets' parent Heritage Grocers Group also shared that it’s opening a store in Las Vegas.

Sprouts is hiring for 83 full- and part-time positions for a store in Port Charlotte, Florida, and 100 employees for a store in Miami. Some of the available positions include department managers, assistant department managers, and clerks for produce, vitamins and body care, meat and seafood, deli, grocery, bakery, and more. Additionally,  cashiers, courtesy clerks, backup receivers, administrative coordinators, and scan coordinators are being fielded.

As with other Sprouts locations, the stores will emulate a farmers' market experience and open layout featuring fresh produce at the center of the store. The offerings will emphasize innovative, seasonal, and attribute-driven products such as organic, plant-based, keto, and paleo among many better-for-you offerings.

The Las Vegas Cardenas Markets will open tomorrow, December 6, and will bring Heritage Grocers’ total store count to 115 locations in six states.
