We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Sunflower, while current sales continue at Vitamin Cottage and Whole Foods (click those links for prior reports). Here's what's especially appealing to me in the new sales.
At Sprouts through March 14th, lean pork is starring, with center-cut pork loin chops $2.99 a pound, and center-cut roast just $1.97 a pound, both boneless. Fresh farmed salmon steaks (as opposed to the fillets I prefer) are $6.99 a pound, stew beef is $3.99 a pound, and previously frozen wild haddock is just $3.97 a pound. They're doing a Frozen Frenzy, with everything you can fit in a special sale bag 20% off. In organic produce, broccoli remains excellent at just 99 cents a pound, organic russets continue at $2.99 for a five pound bag, celery is 99 cents a bunch, grape tomatoes are $1.99 each, leaf lettuce is $1.29 a head, baby carrots are $1.50 a one pound bag, and apples and oranges look good. I'm also enthused about Chobani Greek style yogurts at $1 each.
At Sunflower through the 14th, boneless skinless chicken breasts are the highlight at $1.99 for the family pack, while all chicken sausage is $2.99 a pound, and pork loin chops or roasts are $3.99 a pound (but check above for much better at Sprouts). Organic produce looks good as usual, with romaine lettuce very low at $1 a head, yams or green cabbage $1 a pound (same at Whole Foods for the cabbage), and red, green, or rainbow chard $1.50 a bunch. Conventional asparagus has risen to $1.99 pound at both Sunflower and Sprouts, but after the super low sales of the past few weeks, I think we're pretty burned out on it anyway. Select Brown Cow Greek yogurts are $1 each, and the entire line of their own brand of natural living products is 25% off.
