This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the current one continues at Vitamin Cottage through October 31st (look just a little below for that one). Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through October 21st, there's a Sausage Bonanza, with all fresh chicken sausage varieties (pork also) at $3.99 a pound, and any size package of chicken breast tenders (boneless skinless thighs also) can be had for $2.99 a pound. Sprouts' chicken specials are frequently lower than that, but you have to buy in the large value pack size for the price. In fish, I'm intrigued by wild freshly caught Pacific salmon fillets for just $5.99 a pound. First, how are they getting fresh wild salmon so late in the year, and second, how at such a low price? Previously frozen wild Alaskan cod fillets are $7.99 a pound, and 26/30 raw ez peel farmed shrimp are being sold frozen in two pound bags for $12.98 a bag.

In produce, there's a bit of news to me in conventional before I get to my usual organic, as asparagus is just $1.48 a pound. A reminder of spring to eventually come as we finally get into some fall-like weather? In organic produce, red, yellow or orange bell peppers are all $1.50 each, pints of grape tomatoes are $2.50 each, six ounce containers of raspberries are $2.98 each, and red, green or black grapes are all just $1.88 a pound. Elsewhere in the store, there's a big sale on gluten-free items, some as much as 40% off. It's not the comprehensive one they've offered in the past, but they do say it includes hundreds of items (I see yummy Pamela's cookies in a picture, and favorite Artisan Nut-Thins are shown at $2.50 a box. Also, some Chobani Greek yogurts are BOGO.

At Whole Foods through November 3rd, I'm liking previously frozen wild sockeye salmon fillets for $12.99 a pound (further compounding the mystery of Sprouts' price on fresh wild), and their very good American Homestead boneless country style pork ribs at $4.99 a pound. I'm also liking organic red Bartlett pears for $1.48 a pound, Whole Foods' own organic Greek yogurts at $1 each, some Evol burritos $2 each, and for those who want to curl up with a can of organic chili instead of making their own, Whole Foods' 365 brand is $1.50 each, 79 cents off.
