This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the long-lasting sale at Vitamin Cottage continues through May 7th (look just a bit below for that one). Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through the 20th, I'm liking all chicken sausage (pork also) at $3.49 a pound, whole or split chickens $1.49 a pound, their very good stuffed chicken breasts $2.99 a pound, boneless country style ribs or pork shoulder roast excellent at $1.99 a pound (I sense a bbq for the weekend coming up), and grass-fed ground beef is $4.99 a pound. In fish, previously frozen Alaskan cod is $7.99 a pound, but I'm not interested in last year's frozen catch of salmon when we're on the verge of the new fresh season, and fresh halibut strikes me as silly at $9.99 for a six ounce piece.

The big news to me at Sprouts is in organic produce, with broccoli or cauliflower both at just 98 cents a pound. Time to roast a giant head of cauliflower while we're still in the mood for that. Organic Bartlett pears are $1.48 a pound, and four pound bags of Valencia oranges are $2.98 each. Elsewhere in the store, the emphasis is on a Better for You Brands sale, with a bunch of favorite brands 35% off. Ones catching my eye include Cascadian Farm, Food Should Taste Good, Muir Glen, and Annie's. Also of note are Chobani Greek yogurts for just 88 cents each and the really big 100-ish ounce size of Seventh Generation laundry detergent $8.99, the lowest I've ever seen it.

At Whole Foods through the 19th, I'm liking large globe artichokes for $2.50 (sound like a lot, but past experience had been these are fun and truly very large), Brown Cow Farms Greek yogurts $1 each, tequila lime salmon burgers being an easy dinner at $9.99 a pound, and 365 brand organic chicken broth $1.50 a box - that's a quite decent stand-in when I'm out of Imagine organic broth. Also fascinating are wild caught halibut steaks listed at $14.99 a pound, $7 off. It doesn't specify if fresh in the new season, so I'm wondering about that low price, can't possibly be fresh. And Seventh Generation dish soap is great at $2.50 each. Think folks are getting in the mood for Earth Day.
