This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores. There also should be something new happening at Vitamin Cottage, as their prior long-lasting sale ended this past weekend, must check that out. Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts, before I get to the regular or even 72-hour sale, the big news is the return of the $100 gift card for $89.99, a deal available for today only, November 4th. Sure you could get it to actually gift to someone, but why not get them for yourself (limit 10) and effectively get 10% off all your purchases, even those that are already great deals?

Sprouts will also do another 72-hour sale for this Friday through Sunday. Items appealing to me in that one include Hass avocados three for $1, bulk mild cheddar $2.99 a pound, 750 ml bottles of San Pellegrino sparkling water four for $5, and all full service seafood 30% off.

In Sprouts' regular sale through November 11th, chicken breast tenders are $1.77 a pound, their very good stuffed chicken breasts are $2.99 a pound, Cornish game hens are $2.49 a pound, whole or split chickens are $1.69 a pound, ground chicken is $2.99 a pound (looks like a good week for poultry), bone-in country style ribs are $2.99 a pound (shoulder roast and steaks also), and stew beef is $4.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, on-the-vine tomatoes are $1.98 a pound, five pound bags of table carrots are $2.88 each, cantaloupe or honeydew melons are 88 cents a pound, and black seedless grapes are $1.98 a pound. And if you don't care if your hard squash is organic or conventional (that's something I don't worry about so much as other veggies), conventional acorn, butternut or spaghetti squash are all just 48 cents a pound, and local too. Elsewhere in the store, I'm liking Chobani Greek flip cups 99 cents each, my favorite Blue Diamond Nut Thins at a stock up price of $2 a box, some Near East rice, quinoa or couscous $1.50 a box, 30% off all Frontera products, and the big 100-is ounce size of Seventh Generation laundry detergents $9.99 each.

At Whole Foods through November 17th, I'm liking fresh conventional asparagus at $1.98 a pound, organic Fuji apples $1.99 a pound, six ounce organic raspberries $2.98 each, prepared turkey ficelle sandwiches with smoked mozz and peppers $5.99 each, four ounce packages of Applegate Farms soppressetta $3 each, and if you're feeling really decadent, slices of chocolate eruption cake are $2.99 each.
