This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the current long one at Vitamin Cottage continues through May 7th (look quite a few posts down for that one). Here's what's looking good to me now.

Sprouts will offer another 72-hour sale this weekend, Friday through Sunday, where I'm liking previously frozen 26/30 count wild Gulf shrimp for $6.99 a pound, some Tillamook yogurts three for $1, whole seedless watermelons 10 cents a pound, and pork baby back ribs $2.99 a pound, although the weekend's weather isn't looking so great for bbqs and picnics for the latter two.

In Sprouts' regular sale from today through May 4th, I'm liking whole or split fresh chickens $1.49 a pound, ground chicken, pork or chicken breast all $2.99 a pound, stew beef $3.99 a pound, and quite lean 93% lean ground sirloin $4.99 a pound. It's another week where their fish specials aren't truly calling me.

In organic produce at Sprouts, yellow peaches are $1.98 a pound (it will be a while before we see those beautiful ones from the Western Slope, so get started with an alternative), green curly kale bunches or cucumbers are 88 cents each, Bartlett pears are 98 cents a pound, and four pound bags of Valencia oranges are $2.98 each. In conventional produce, avocado fans will delight in Hass avocados at three for $1 (hope you're still reading, Ms. A.!). Elsewhere in the store, with Cinco de Mayo coming up, there are lots of "fiesta favorites" at 30% off. I'm also liking some Siggi's Icelandic style yogurts $1 each, Garden of Eatin' Cantina tortilla chips $2.50 for a big 13 ounce bag, bulk pepper jack cheese $1.99 a pound, and a line drive on Barbara's products at 40% off. For those in the market, there's also a baby sale, with some natural and organic baby essentials 25% off.

At Whole Foods through May 3rd, Hass avocados are $1 each, not in the league of Sprouts' three for $1, but the ones at Whole Foods tend to be larger. Organic Whole Trade mini watermelons are $3.99 each, wild domestic 21/25 count raw shrimp are $9.99 a pound, and fresh lake trout fillets sound tempting at $10.99 a pound. Frontera marinades and cooking sauces are $2 each to make Cinco de Mayo easier, and 365 brand organic extra virgin olive oil in the Mediterranean blend are on sale in both the liter and half liter sizes. Plus Whole Foods Market omega supplements are 50% off.
