This Week's Hot New Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new specials starting today at Sprouts (incorporating the former Sunflower) and Whole Foods.  Here's what's appealing to me in a quick look.

Through October 3rd, Sprouts is offering a Rib Festival, with a whole bunch of cuts of beef and pork ribs all 50% off.  Grass-fed organic ground beef also looks really quite good at $3.99 a pound, and regular stew beef is also $3.99 a pound.  In fish, previously frozen wild caught haddock (great for fish chowders) is quite low at $4.99 a pound, fresh, albeit farmed, Atlantic salmon is just $5.99 a pound, as are 26/30 count peeled and deveined raw shrimp, those being previously frozen.

In organic produce, I'm glad to see my weekly purchase of one pound bags of baby carrots back down to $1.25 a bag (usually $1.99 elsewhere), acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash, and also red or jewel yams are all 99 cents a pound (same at Whole Foods for the squash), three pound bags of yellow onions are just $1.99 each, red or green leaf lettuce is $1.29 a head, green onions are 69 cents a bunch, and their bulk spring mix salad is just $3.99 a pound.

At Whole Foods through October 16th, very fine air-chilled whole chickens are notable at $1.49 a pound (nearly half off), and Norwegian salmon (that typically means farmed, but with the finest pedigree) is $13.99 a pound for fillets.  In organic produce, acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash are all 99 cents a pound (same at Sprouts - welcome to winter squash season), red or green cabbage is also 99 cents a pound, and gold Delicious or Jonathon apples are $1.49 a pound.  Beware the red bell peppers on sale for $1.25 each; when organic isn't specified, as in this case, conventional is assumed, and those are three for $1 at Sprouts this week.  In the Bakehouse, pumpernickel bread looks good at $2.99 a loaf, and in Whole Body, Avalon Organics shampoos and conditioners are nearly half price at $4.99 each.
