Sprouts Farmers Market is coming to Del Paso Marketplace in Natomas

September 14, 2016

Rick Martinez, a senior vice president with CBRE Sacramento who helped broker the lease, said Sprouts will take an anchor position in the center. Sprouts Farmers Market is coming to Del Paso Marketplace in Natomas.

“It makes a huge difference,” he said of having an anchor in Del Paso Marketplace, on the southeast corner of Del Paso Road and East Commerce Way. Since Sprouts signed on, he said, he’s seeing more interest from other potential tenants, many of them in the popular fast-casual restaurant vein.

Developed and owned by Buzz Oates, Del Paso Marketplace has about 53,000 square feet of leasable space overall. The lease by Sprouts leaves about 20,000 square feet available, with the largest available spaces between 4,000 and 5,000 square feet.

When the center was built about a decade ago, Fresh & Easy was planning to be the anchor tenant, in a 15,000-square-foot building. That grocer’s expansion plans didn’t gain traction in Northern California, and the Del Paso Marketplace building didn’t get occupied.

Martinez said within weeks, work will begin to expand that building to the 30,000 square feet Sprouts will fill, with the building ready for occupancy next April. To increase visibility, a retail building housing T-Mobile near the intersection of Commerce and Del Paso will be torn down. T-Mobile is relocating to another spot in the center, Martinez said.

The store will be Sprouts’ seventh in the region, with existing stores in Sacramento, Elk Grove, Citrus Heights and two in Roseville. Sprouts is also planning to fill a former Orchard Supply Hardware space in Folsom. Martinez said he believes the Natomas store will most closely match the store Sprouts opened at the Rocky Ridge Town Center on Douglas Boulevard in Roseville, with a 3,000-square-foot area for deli and to-go items
