This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at both our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores. Here's a really quick look at what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through February 18th, the hot news to me is conventional asparagus all the way down to 99 cents a pound. Asparagus is one of the few veggies I find myself buying in conventional instead of organic, and it doesn't get lower than that. In meat and fish, chicken breast tenders are $1.99 a pound, and value pack isn't mentioned, five ounce lobster tails are $5.99 each, ground chicken, pork, or chicken breast are all $2.99 a pound, farmed fresh salmon fillets are $8.99 a pound, and in steaks, grass-fed boneless ribeyes or New Yorks are $10.99 a pound, while natural filet mignon is $13.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, celery is $1.50 a bunch, one pound bags of baby carrots are $1.50 a bag, Braeburn and red delicious apples are both 99 cents a pound, broccoli is $1.50 a pound, curly green kale, and red or rainbow chard are all $1.50 a bunch, grape tomatoes are $2.50 a pint, and blackberries are $2.99 for a 5.6 ounce container. Elsewhere in the store I'm liking Chobani Greek yogurts $1 each, the big 28 ounce size cans of Muir Glen organic tomatoes for just $1.50 each, and a Mega Omega Sale at 25% off omegas.

In Whole Foods' new sale through February 24th, I'm liking Pine Manor split air-chilled chicken breasts for $3.99 a pound, American Homestead boneless pork shoulder roast also $3.99 a pound, chicken cordon blue $5.99 a pound, and while the slimy things don't appeal to me personally, live oysters are $1 each, and they'll shuck them for free. Organic green kale is $1.50 a bunch, and organic Cara Cara oranges are $1.68 a pound, but for conventional asparagus, I'd head to Sprouts this week, as Whole Foods' sale price is two and a half times as much at $2.48 a pound. Udi's gluten free pizzas are $2.40 off at $5.99 each, Whole Creamery mozzarella ciliegene look good at $3 for eight ounces, and Ford Farm Seaside cheddar is $4 off at $9.99 a pound.
