This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores. Something's also happening at Vitamin Cottage, but as recently mentioned, they were out of the Hotline sale flyer when I stopped by. Will try again soon, so here's what's looking good to me now.

Sprouts has another 72-hour sale coming up for this weekend, Friday through Sunday. In that window, value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts will be just $1.59 a pound, and liters of Sprouts' own extra virgin olive oil will be $5.99 each, among other things. Jumbo Hass avocados will be 98 cents each, but they'd better be quite jumbo for that to feel special.

In Sprouts' regular sale through January 20th, I'm liking boneless ribeye steaks at $7.99 a pound, baby back pork ribs $2.79 a pound, all chicken sausage (pork also) $3.99 a pound, pork shoulder roast or bone-in country style ribs $1.99 a pound, and their very good stuffed chicken breasts $2.99 a pound. There's also a Buffalo Stampede with lots of bison on sale. In fish, previously frozen wild Alaskan cod is $7.99 a pound, quite big 16/20 count ez peel raw shrimp are also $7.99 a pound, and fresh farmed salmon fillets are $5.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, on-the-vine cluster tomatoes are great at $1.98 a pound, green curly, Lacinato or Red Russian kale are all just 98 cents a bunch, red, yellow or orange bell peppers are $1.50 each, and Braeburn or red Delicious apples are $1.50 a pound. Elsewhere in the store, I'm liking some half gallons of Horizon organic milk very low at $2.99 each, a Kashi special where if you buy a cereal at $2.99 a box, you get a Golean plant-powered bar free, bulk Monterey jack cheese at $2.99 a pound, local Noosa yoghurts very low at $1.50 each, Stonyfield organic Greek yogurts four for $5, the smaller 15-ish ounce size of Muir Glen organic tomatoes $1.25 a can, MaraNatha peanut butters $4.99 a 16 ounce jar, and bulk smoked gouda $4.99 a pound.

Whole Foods' new sale flyer runs through January 19th - they've switched to shorter advertisements, but if the last couple of weeks were any indication, some sales may continue past the week. In any case, I'm currently liking Diestel bone-in turkey breast at $5.49 a pound (time for another feast so soon after the holidays?), farmed barramundi fillets $8.99 a pound, wild mahi mahi $7.99 a pound, WFM's own organic sourdough boule $4.49 each (and they are always happy to give you half a loaf instead, sliced or unsliced), Ciolo seven ounce prepared basil pesto $4.99 each (although I have quite a stock of my own pesto in my freezer), and organic Lady Alice apples $1.99 a pound.
