This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have a new sale starting today at our Boulder Sprouts, while the current ones continue at Vitamin Cottage and Whole Foods (click for prior reports).  By the way, the chicken I roasted earlier this week from the Whole Foods sale ($1.49 a pound, nearly half off for a fine air-chilled one) was such a success, I'm glad I have through the 16th to pick up another one.

The big news to me at Sprouts through the 17th is salmon.  I usually don't buy farmed salmon unless it's Norwegian (currently on sale at Whole Foods for $13.99 a pound), but when the price of plain old fresh Atlantic salmon fillets drops to $3.99 a pound at Sprouts, I have to take notice.  Also of interest to me are all types of chicken sausage at $2.99 a pound, turkey tenders, cutlets or ground turkey breast all $3.99 a pound, stew beef $3.99 a pound, ground pork $2.99 a pound, and previously frozen haddock $5.99 a pound.

In organic produce, baby carrots remain good at $1.25 a one pound bag ($1.99 elsewhere), butternut squash is 88 cents a pound, red or jewel yams are 99 cents a pound, russet potatoes are $3.99 for a whole five pound bag, broccoli is $1.49 a pound, grape tomatoes are $1.99 a pint, bulk spring mix or spinach remain very low at $3.99 a pound, and black or red seedless grapes are $2.49 a pound, although I liked it better when we could get them at $1.99 a pound.

Elsewhere in the store, four-year-aged bulk sharp cheddar is $6.99 a pound, and 60% double cream brie is $7.99 a pound.  Select Applegate organic packaged deli meats are $5.99 a pound, not the lowest price we've ever seen, but their meats are really good.
