This Week's Hot New Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Sunflower (both logos still coexisting on the new sale flyer), while the current sale continues at Whole Foods (click for prior report).  Here's what's looking good to me in the new sales.

At Sprouts and probably Sunflower (there's still that fine print about the merger in progress and price differential possibilities) through September 12th, surf & turf is featured, with porterhouse steak $6.99 a pound, and very big 16/20 count shrimp $5.99 a pound.  Value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts are $2.99 a pound, not the lowest we've ever seen, while chicken (also pork) sausage are $2.99 a pound as well.  Rosie's organic whole fryers or grill packs are $2.79 a pound, previously frozen Alaskan cod fillets are $7.99 a pound, fresh (farmed) Atlantic salmon is just $4.99 a pound, and there's a big "buffalo stampede," with many types of bison on sale.

In organic produce, baby carrots remain nicely low at $1.25 for a one pound bag, red or green grapes are $1.99 a pound, one pound clamshells of strawberries are $2.99, celery is $1.29 a bunch, five pound bags of russets are $3.99 each, grape tomatoes are back down to $2 a pint, and the march towards prepackaged produce unfortunately continues.  There's a lot of BOGO action, including Earthbound Farm organic salads, my favorite Cascade fresh yogurts (good thing, considering they've bumped up the regular price), Cascadian Farm cereal, Westbrae organic canned beans, Oikos Greek yogurts, and Near East pilafs and couscous (select varieties for all).  Last but not least, conventional avocados are 50 cents each, not as good as last week's three for $1, but still pretty good.
