Does Sprouts Have Delivery? (Yes, Here’s How It Works)
Sprouts Farmer’s Market delivery makes it possible to bring the farmers’ market to your home without you leaving the comfort of your couch. Their website makes it incredibly easy to create an account and place your delivery order in a matter of minutes.
Sprouts orders are delivered through Instacart. You can place orders online using both Sprouts and Instacart websites or apps. Orders over $35 are charged a $3.99 delivery fee. $7.99 delivery fee applies to orders below $35. There is also a $10 minimum for Sprouts delivery orders.
If you create an Instacart account and sign up for their Express Membership, you will unlock many other benefits, including free delivery!
How Does Sprouts Delivery Work?
Sprouts orders are delivered through Instacart, and you can have your groceries delivered in as little as an hour. But, first, you need to make an account on Sprouts Farmers Market or Instacart.
Then, using either website or the app, you can place your order and simply wait for the delivery to arrive via an Instacart shopper!
The delivery process is simple. Once the order is placed, you have to ensure that you are home for the delivery. Alternatively, you can choose the contactless delivery and ask for your order to be left at your door.
You have the options of one-hour delivery, two-hour delivery, or you can choose a time that works best for you. You can even schedule the delivery days in advance.
If something comes up and you aren’t going to be home in time for delivery, Sprouts asks you to try one of two things. First, try asking a neighbor or friend if they will be available. If they are, add a note to your order so that the delivery driver is aware of the situation.
Otherwise, you can add a note to leave the groceries in a particular area. Although, this isn’t recommended if you’re going to be away from home for a long time and ordering perishable items.
Make sure to also include any other instructions with your order, such as codes if you’re living in a gated community!
How Much Does Sprouts Delivery Cost?
All Sprouts delivery orders over $35 are charged a delivery fee of $3.99. Orders below $35 are charged $7.99 for delivery, but the order has to be at least $10 before delivery is even an option. Some are subject to additional fees, like a one-hour delivery fee, but this differs by state, location, and order.
Below is a complete list of all potential fees for delivery orders, courtesy of Instacart:
- Service Fee
- Alcohol Service Fee
- Long-Distance Service Fee
- Bottle Deposit and Bag Fee
- Heavy Fee
All these fees are subject to change according to location, what you purchased, and how many things you purchased.
However, those with an Instacart Express Membership can reap the benefits of free deliveries with discounted service fees for all orders over $35. You even get the first two months of the membership free with a Mastercard!

Digital coupons are accepted with Sprouts’ delivery. However, you can only use digital coupons offered via the Sprouts app. No third-party coupons are accepted. In addition, there are certain restrictions and coupon limits that all customers must follow. Coupons can only be redeemed once unless otherwise stated.
Some Sprouts digital coupons have an “Unlimited” redeemability but will be noticeably marked in the coupon offer image.
Sprouts former employee and Denver, CO native Tyler Bailey states that Sprouts reserves the right to accept, refuse, and limit the use of any coupon. So, it is best if you brush up on the Sprouts coupon policy before ordering.
Here are a few interesting coupon pointers to remember:
- You can use coupons found on the Sprouts’ Facebook and Sprouts emails
- You can use a coupon even on items with Sprouts BOGO promotion
- The customer is still responsible for full retail tax on the discounted item
- Coupons are never multiplied – meaning you can’t double or triple the value

You can even see your order history to check for mistakes or order similar items on your next delivery.
Instacart Express Membership is $9.99 per month ($99 per year). Instacart also claims that the average shopper saves $7 per order, which essentially pays for the membership itself.

Do You Tip Sprouts Delivery?
Tipping Sprouts delivery is optional but highly encouraged to show your appreciation. 100% of the tip goes to your Instacart shopper that delivers the order. The recommended tip amount is 15-20% of your order total.
Sprouts shopper and delivery driver Kate Plainfield lives in busy New York City and encourages customers to tip their delivery drivers as much as 25 to 30%. After all, they are at least equivalent to restaurant hospitality, which usually yields a 20% tip.
To tip your delivery driver, you can add the tip during your order checkout before the delivery is completed. You can also choose to add the tip afterward by following the link given via SMS feedback.
Sprouts delivery is not only possible, but it’s extremely convenient and comes with many perks when you link your Sprouts account to an Instacart Express account. You can start enjoying the benefits of grocery delivery today with just a few easy steps!

🌷 For people with disabilities, see below for services that provide shopping and assistance in the home.
🧡 Can’t get a delivery slot on Amazon or somewhere else? Reader’s tip: Start as early as possible in the day. Put everything in your cart ready to check out. Come back every 30 minutes and try to check out. Eventually a slot will open. The minute it opens, grab it, even if it is not for today.
🧡 Amazon is not letting new customers order groceries in some areas. You may get a message that says “invitation only.” There is no way to actually get an invitation, this is just a fancy way of saying “waiting list.” If you have a friend who is already a customer for Amazon grocery delivery, you could try seeing if the system will allow that person to place orders to your house.
🧡 Reader’s Tip: If you live in a state where Amazon accepts food stamps, but are having trouble using your EBT card on the Amazon site, try switching from “Amazon Fresh” and use “Amazon Pantry” instead.

🧡 Are food stamps increasing in your state? State by state foodstamps tracker.
🧡 If you are live with other people and you are on food stamps (or applying) it’s a good idea to make sure you know the rules for household composition and that you are following them. It can make a very big difference in the amount of benefits you receive. How to SNAP: Household Rules

Tips from Reader:
🌷Reader’s report they have done this successfully at many different stores, including: Giant Eagle, Shoprite, Harris Teeter, and Walmart

🌷 When you get to the store, pay with EBT. Some places can even bring the EBT reader out to the car if you are unable to go in.
🌷 You may want to contact your local store first to make sure this will go smoothly.
🌷 Some readers have also had success by calling or writing small, local stores and explaining their situation.
Adding a Shopper
🌷 If you have a friend, family member, or disability aide who shops for you, you can request to have this person added as an authorized shopper on your food stamps card so they can shop on your behalf.
🌷 If your helper does not use your card regularly, but is doing this on a short term or occasional basis, some states do not require that you get permission, and they will just allow someone to shop for you when needed.

Shopping Assistance for People with Disabilities

🌷 If you do not have severe care needs, and just need help with shopping and chores, some areas offer this. Not available everywhere: How to Get a Caregiver.
🌷 If you are currently in a Medicaid program that sends an aide through an agency, and the agency does not allow shopping or driving, one solution is to switch to a self-directed care program so you can select an aide who is allowed to shop.

Being homebound is nothing new to us. Many of us have been homebound or bedridden for five, or ten, or twenty years.
There is now a great deal of support, understanding, and help available to people staying home during Coronavirus, but none of this was available to us all these years, and when Coronavirus is over, it may go away again.
As you go about your day, please take a moment to think about your homebound friends. You may be able to go back out someday, but we may never be able to.
