Grocery shopping can be a hassle, especially if you have kids as my wife and I do. You can save yourself a lot of stress just ordering your groceries online. But if you’re a loyal shopper of Sprouts Farmers Market, you may have wondered does Sprouts have curbside pickup?

I decided to check it out at the location close to me and here’s what I learned:

Yes, Sprouts Farmers Market stores do have curbside pickup offered through Instacart. Instacart Pickup allows you to order your groceries online and set a time to pick them up curbside without ever having to leave your car.

But how does it work? How do you order and pick up your groceries? Do they charge more for pickup?

How does pickup work at Sprouts?

Currently, Sprouts Farmers Market only offers pickup and delivery through Instacart (click to check out their website now and get started). This means that you must place your order by using Instacart’s website or app.

This is different from pickup services like Walmart provides. With Walmart, you place your order directly through their app.

Ordering groceries through Instacart is very easy. With Instacart Pickup, you can order your groceries online and set a time to pick them up at your convenience.

Instacart even has e-coupons you can apply to your order. Just place your order, select the time you want to pick up your groceries, and submit your payment.

You’ll receive a notification when it’s ready to be picked up, along with directions for where and how to pick up your groceries.

Instacart can be used with many other stores, too! It works with big chain stores as well as small mom and pop stores. It also works with pharmacies and wine shops, too.

How much is Sprouts pick up?

Sprouts has partnered with Instacart to provide curbside pickup services.

This means that an Instacart shopper will do the shopping and bring your groceries out to your car.

The fee for bringing groceries out to your car, or even delivering them to your home, will vary depending on the city you live in. However, your first order over $35 will be free. Future pickup fees will depend on the order size and delivery time.

You may be charged “busy pricing” during high demand time. This allows Instacart to keep more delivery times open and available during the store’s busiest times of the day. Busy pricing will be clearly visible when you pick your pickup time.

In most cities, prices start at $1.99 per order. If you use the service frequently, it may be beneficial to become a premium member.

If you are a premium member, you don’t have to pay any additional fees, just the annual membership fee of $99. Remember, you can use the service at a wide range of stores, not just Sprouts. And they deliver, too.

So, you can have Instacart do your grocery shopping, pick up your prescriptions for you, and even deliver alcohol to you for $99 per year. Not only will this pay for itself in under 6 months, but it saves you a boatload of time.

Did you catch what I said about the alcohol? That’s right, they’ll deliver your booze in many states!

To see if you live in one of those states read this recent article. Instacart currently delivers alcohol in 14 states.

Recipients must show ID and cannot be visibly intoxicated at the time of delivery.

How do you order groceries from Sprouts?

Currently, Sprouts Farmers Market doesn’t have an app or anything for you to order through. So, if you want to order groceries from Sprouts, you need to do it through Instacart.

Is grocery pickup from sprouts more expensive?

It may be.

Instacart charges more money for certain stores, but sometimes there isn’t any added markup fee at all. 

In fact, there was a recent outrage because customers found out that Instacart charges an average markup of 15% at some stores.

However, according to Instacart’s pricing information, the retail partners set the prices of items on the Instacart marketplace. Sometimes those prices are different than in-store prices.

Additionally, a service fee may be added by the retailer to items to cover the cost of Instacart services.

You can view Sprout’s pricing policies on the Instacart app. Actually, you can view the pricing policies for any retailer on Instacart’s app.

Just go to the main page of the app or the website and select the retailer. Tap on the logo and scroll down to “Pricing.” From there, just scroll down to see the pricing information.

Unfortunately, you often won’t know the exact amount of markups until after you’ve already paid for your groceries.
