Update: Missed it by that much. If in the future, you are planning to shop at the new Sprouts, don’t head into the old fresh & easy location, because it won’t be there.

Well, that was quick.
Thanks to tipster Carl who let us know that the Foothill Boulevard fresh & easy in Upland that was one of the dozens of stores that closed back in September is being fashioned into a Sprouts Farmers Market.

Although San Bernardino County lifted the ban on hot food trucks (sorta) over two years ago, there are still just a couple of local trucks registered with the county.
And the trucks don’t really operate on a daily basis as they do in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
And the only semi-regular stops for the trucks are at county breweries, typically on Friday nights.
And then there’s Cal State University San Bernardino.
