This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

Happy July! We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the current one continues at Vitamin Cottage through July 11th. Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through July 8th, chicken breast tenders are $1.99 a pound (and it doesn't say value pack), whole or split chicken's are $1.69 a pound, bone-in pork shoulder roast, country style ribs or spare ribs are all $2.99 a pound, their very good stuffed chicken breasts are $2.99 a pound, bone-in ribeye steaks are $8.99 a pound, and fresh farmed salmon fillets are $5.99 a pound. (But in the midst of fresh wild salmon season I'd go with wild instead. Sprouts isn't advertising a price for that this week, but sockeye fillets are $9.99 a pound with card at Safeway.)

In organic produce at Sprouts, mini seedless watermelons are great at just $1.50 each, red or green leaf lettuce is $1.50 a head, baby carrots are $1.50 for a one pound bag, yellow peaches and red plums are both $1.98 a pound, and blueberries (six ounces) and strawberries (one pound) are $2.98 a container. Elsewhere in the store, a 32 ounce bottle of Santa Cruz organic lemonade is just 99 cents, Kettle brand popcorn or potato chips are $1.50 a bag, there's a Snack Attack chip sale, with a bunch of snacks 50% off (and I see lots of good brands in the picture, including my favorite Lundberg rice chips), there's a line drive on Frontera brand at 35% off, a bunch of ice cream is on sale, 24-packs of Arrowhead water are three for $10, and some six packs of Sanpellegrino sparkling soda are $4.99 each.

At Whole Foods through July 14th, wild fresh king salmon fillets are $19.99 a pound (a lot to pay for a piece of fish, but king is the king), sirloin tip steak is $3 off at $6.99 a pound, and their excellent brined pork chops are $5.99 a pound. Organic blackberries look good at $2 for six ounces, but their organic mini seedless watermelons are twice as much as at Sprouts this week, $2.98 at Whole Foods. Four types of Rumiano organic cheese slices are $3.99 a package (size not mentioned), 20-packs of Whole Foods' own chocolate chip cookies are $5.99 each, Honest organic lemonade is $1.50 each (size again not mentioned, and also consider that 99 cent deal on Santa Cruz organic), and Mrs. Meyers liquid hand soap, always by my kitchen sink, is $3.99 a pump bottle.
