What’s a Good Price for Fresh Produce

Posted on April 4th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

About a month ago we posted about good prices for meat. Fresh produce is another grocery item that can take a bite out of your budget. Have you noticed that the things most healthy for your family is also the most expensive? It doesn’t have to be that way if you know what prices are good and when to buy. The unfortunate thing about produce is you can’t stock up a lot unless it’s freezable. We’ll go over freezable vegetables another time. For now, here’s a quick price produce guide.

When you see these prices, it’s a good time to buy.

Bananas $.29 pound
Cantaloupe $.99 each
Grapes $.88 pound
Blueberries $2.00 a package
Naval oranges $.50 each
Strawberries $1.50 for a small package
Idaho potatoes $.69 pound, also check for when they have sales on the whole bag.
Cucumbers $.20 each
Celery $.99 each
Grape tomatoes $.99 a package
Avocado $1 each
Asparagus $1.99 pound
