This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have a new sale starting today at our Boulder Sprouts stores. Whole Foods has also posted a new sale flyer, although some appear to be continuing from last week. And the long-lasting sale at Vitamin Cottage continues through April 2nd, so look at the post just below this for that. Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through March 23rd, balue packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts (thighs also) are just $1.77 a pound, fresh whole or split chickens are $1.69 a pound (a little more for fully cut up), their very good stuffed chicken breasts are $2.99 a pound, all chicken sausage (pork also) are $3.99 a pound, and stew beef is finally a decent price at $3.99 a pound. In fish, fresh farmed Atlantic salmon fillets or tilapia are both $6.99 a pound, and previously frozen Alaskan snow crab clusters are $7.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, four pound bags of grapefruit or Valencia oranges are just $1.98 each, cauliflower or broccoli are decent at $1.50 a pound, unless you can catch either today on the last day of the fabulous 98 cents a pound sale (although the broccoli was out of stock yesterday), and one pound clamshells of strawberries are $3.98 each ($1.50 for conventional, but I always go organic for berries). One thing I do buy in conventional is asparagus, which remains great at $1.88 a pound (although Whole Foods continues to nearly match that this week).

Elsewhere in the store at Sprouts, there's a big Frozen Frenzy, with 20% off the current price of everything frozen. This makes lots more sense when they do that at this time of year, rather than in the midst of summer, with beautiful fresh, local food everywhere. I'm also enthused about bulk coffee $7.99 a pound, some Fage Greek yogurts just 79 cents each, 50% off all Spice Hunter items (stock up!), my favorite Imagic organic broths are fantastic at $2 a box, and Annie's mac and cheese is even better that at Vitamin Cottage at just $1 a box. For some spring cleaning, some Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products (Sprouts' own brand also) are 25% off, Seventh Generation dish or hand soaps are great at $2.50 each, and the big size of Seventh Generation laundry detergents are $9.99 each.

Instead of doing their prior two- or three-week sale flyer, Whole Foods continues to confound me by now posting a sale flyer weekly, but where some things repeat more along the old pattern. This week's flyer includes items I remember from last week, like the pork chops, but also has some that look new to me (I just don't have time to look back to last week's post for details). Of particular interest to me in the new flyer through March 22nd are Allegro extra dark French roast coffee at $7.99 a pound, if you particularly seek Allegro rather than the Sprouts coffee sale, 365 organic butter extraordinary at $2.50 a pound (more than half off), 365 Spanish olive oil $6.99 for the big 33.8 ounce bottle, organic beefsteak tomatoes $1.99 a pound, and seven ounce Kerrygold Dubliner cheddar $3 each, just in time for Saint Patrick's Day tomorrow. Some Fage Greek yogurt cups are $1 each, but you'll do better at Sprouts for that. To brighten your house, you can get two 10 stem bunches of daffodils for a mere $3 altogether, if you are lucky enough to have a home where they wouldn't immediately be devoured by pets.
