This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the new one just started at Vitamin Cottage continues through August 15th (look two posts below for that one). Here's what's looking good to me now.

In Sprouts' new sale through July 22nd, value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts are $1.88 each, their very good stuffed chicken breasts are $2.99 a pound (and one breast more than serves two people), boneless center-cut pork loin chops (roast also) are also $2.99 a pound, whole or split chickens are $1.69 a pound, all chicken sausage is $3.99 a pound, and ground chicken is $2.99 a pound. Fresh farmed Atlantic salmon is $5.99 a pound, but I'd go for wild in this fresh wild season. Sprouts isn't advertising their price on that this week, but I'd bet they'd have a competitive one. If not, you can find fresh Alaskan sockeye for $8.88 a pound at Safeway, $8.99 at King Soopers, both with card. Also check out the post just above this for a special one week sale on coho at Whole Foods for $9.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, on-the-vine tomatoes are stunning at just 98 cents a pound, red or green leaf lettuce and hothouse cucumbers are all $1.50 each, red, green or black seedless grapes are $2.98 a pound, and containers of blueberries (six ounces) or strawberries (one pound) are both $2.98 each. In conventional produce, sweet corn is six for $1, but I am so eager for our local Munson corn instead. Elsewhere in the store, there's a big sale on Hain Celestial brand products, with 35% off over 700 products. Hain Celestial is a wide umbrella, and the number of brands is surprising even me - per the picture, my favorite Imagine organic broth is among them. Also, some Lundberg whole grain rice blends are $1.50 a bag (quinoa and rice pictured, looks good), and Fage Fruyo Greek yogurts are $1 each.

At Whole Foods through July 28th, I'm liking organic heirloom tomatoes at $2.98 a pound (if you want to go fancier than those 98 cent tomatoes at Sprouts), perhaps to be combined with WFM fresh bocconcini mozzarella at $4 a container. I've never tried barramundi fillets, and they look intriguing at $8.99 a pound, but I'll probably pass on the lobster cakes for $23.99 a pound. Stonyfield Greek yogurts are $1.25 each, some Nature's Path cereals are $3 a box, and packages of Applegate bbq sliced chicken breast are $2 off at $3.99 each.
