This Week's Hot New Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our local Sprouts, Sunflower, and Whole Foods.  With time extremely tight, here's a quick rundown of what's appealing to me.

Sales that Sprouts and Sunflower have in common through August 8th:  chicken breast tenders $1.99 a pound, filet mignon $9.99 a pound, fresh wild sockeye salmon $9.99 a pound, chicken sausage $2.99 a pound, huge 16/20 count raw shrimp $6.99 a pound, ground pork $2.99 a pound, and conventional asparagus $1.99 a pound.  Also, previously frozen center cut swordfish is $8.99 a pound.  While I'm not a big fan of previously frozen fish, I did have quite good luck with this swordfish at Sprouts a bit ago, and Sunflower is now using the same fish supplier as Sprouts, so I'm thinking I'll give it another try from either store.

In differing sales, organic baby carrots are quite good at $1.25 for a one pound bag at Sprouts, but stunning at Sunflower at 99 cents for the same.  Sprouts also has pints of organic grape tomatoes for $2 and organic leaf lettuce or romaine at $1.29 a head, organic romas $2.50 for a six pack, and organic russet potatoes $3.99 for a five pound bag.  At Sunflower, the standout is really those organic baby carrots, along with organic hothouse tomatoes just 99 cents a pound (although it's time for non-hothouse locals), and red or green organic grapes $1.99 a pound.  Sunflower also has the 15-ish ounce size of Muir Glen organic tomatoes for $1.25 each.

At the new sale at Whole Foods through August 14th, I'm liking Stonyfield Farms organic fat-free yogurts at 5 for $3, New York strip steaks for a surprisingly good $12.99 a pound, Laughing Cow Babybels half price at $2.50 a package, and the big Seventh Generation laundry detergent for $12.99.
