This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

Good beautiful Wednesday morning on Bike to Work Day and the first day of the new Boulder Farmers' Market in downtown Longmont this afternoon from 4 to 8. Meanwhile, we have a new sale starting today at our Boulder Sprouts stores, while the current one continues at Whole Foods through July 1st and at Vitamin Cottage through July 12th. Here's what's looking good to me now.

In addition to its regular sale, Sprouts will offer a 72 hour sale for this Friday through Sunday. Items in that include whole seedless watermelons for $1.98 each, 30/40 count Peruvian sea scallops for $6.99 a pound, and in an interesting pricing twist, 24 pack cases of Arrowhead water that will be $2.50 each when you buy two, but $2.99 each if you just buy one. In Sprouts' regular sale through July 2nd, boneless pork loin chops are $2.99 a pound, any size package of boneless skinless chicken breasts (tenders also) is $2.99 a pound, and stuffed chicken breasts are $3.99 a pound (sale price used to be $2.99). In fish, fresh wild Alaskan sockeye salmon fillets are excellent at $10.99 a pound ($12.99 at Safeway, $13.99 at King Soopers with card, and last I looked the Pearl Whole Foods had very last of the Copper River season for $17.99 a pound, but that could be over). Sprouts also has previously frozen haddock fillets for just $4.99 a pound. Hmmm, haddock plus weekend scallop sale spells fish chowder.

In produce at Sprouts, one of the few items I'll buy in conventional is asparagus, and that's a great $1.98 a pound this week. On to my usual organic produce, five pound bags of red or Yukon potatoes are just $2.50 each, cantaloupes are 50 cents a pound, six ounce containers of blueberries are $2.50 each, red or green grapes are $2.98 a pound, and yellow peaches or "dapple" pluots are also $2.98 a pound. Elsewhere in the store, I'm liking roasted coffee beans for $6.99 a pound, Chobani Greek yogurts $1 each (but Whole Foods has Brown Cow Farm Greek yogurts $1 each through Tuesday, and I think they taste even better, plus they're non-GMO verified), some Amy's burritos are $2 each, some R.W. Knudsen organic juices are just $2.50 for 32 ounces, Annie's Naturals condiments are 25% off, and Blue Diamond artisan nut thins are $2.50 a box, a very good price for the artisan ones. Finally, select seven ounce Kerrygold Irish cheeses are $4.49 each, and I only recently recognized the lushness of that name, seeing contented dairy cows grazing in County Kerry and eating dairy products that were pure gold.
