This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the current long-lasting one at Vitamin Cottage will draw to a close this Saturday, the 15th. Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through August 19th, I'm liking sirloin tip roast or steak for $3.99 a pound. Heck, cut that up for stew beef, which they are advertising as being on sale at $5.49 a pound. Any size package of boneless skinless chicken breasts is $2.99 a pound, while Rosie organic boneless skinless ones are $7.99 a pound. Bone-in country style pork ribs, spare ribs or pork shoulder roast are all $2.99 a pound. In seafood, 21/25 count previously frozen raw ez peel shrimp are $6.49 a pound, but I'm afraid there isn't much else hitting me this week in that department. No form of salmon is advertised, but in a pinch, Safeway still lists fresh wild Alaskan sockeye fillets at $7.99 a pound with card.

In organic produce at Sprouts, grapes are great, with red, green or black seedless ones all $1.77 a pound. Big one pound clamshells of some Earthbound Farm salads are $4.88 each, table carrots are $2.88 for a five pound bag, and strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are all $2.88 a container (one pound for the strawberries, six-ish ounces for the others). I don't buy much conventional produce, but you have to take note of pineapples at just 77 cents each.

Elsewhere in the store at Sprouts, there's a Frozen Frenzy, with 20% off the current price of everything frozen (with a wintry Jackson Hole ski adventure sweepstakes to go with it). I'm also liking some Siggi's Icelandic style yogurts at $1 each, bulk pepper jack cheese at $3.99 a pound, some Terra chips at $2.50 a bag, and there's a special where if you buy $10 in Horizon products, you save an extra $3.

At Whole Foods through August 26th, I'm liking country style pork ribs or shoulder roast at $4.99 a pound (you can get bone-in this week at Sprouts for $2.99 but the ones at Whole Foods are boneless, and American Homestead pork is very fine). Organic heirloom tomatoes are $3.98 a pound, six ounce containers of organic raspberries at $2.50 each beat Sprouts' price, and it's time for Rocky Ford cantaloupes, with large ones $2.98 each. In bulk coffee, Allegro breakfast blend is $7.99 a pound, and elsewhere, you'll find family packs of Applegate sliced roasted turkey for $4.99 each, and Whole Foods' own blueberry coffee cakes look tempting at $3.99 each.
