Price Comparison (DFW): Produce & Some Meat, Dairy & Nuts – week of 7/14/10


Cheap Peaches & Nectarines
If you are looking for cheap US-grown peaches and nectarines, today is the last day to get them for $0.47/lb at Newflower Farmers Market. The store is located at 1800 N. Henderson Avenue, north of downtown Dallas. I purchased several pounds of their peaches a few days ago.

They are not nearly as good as the Texas-grown peaches I purchased at Central Market for $1.50/lb, but they’re fine for making peach sorbet and sauces!

Speaking of Texas-grown peaches, the man who did the Williams-Sonoma technique class last weekend raved about Ham Orchard peaches. My daughter and I are planning a trip to Terrell to check it out. I’ll let you know what we find!

Best Price on Organic Fuji Apples
I am only buying organic apples these days, and the prices usually range from $1.99-2.49/lb. I have found that my apple peeler/corer/slicer consistently works the best with Fuji apples and had been paying $2.49/lb for these apples at Whole Foods and Central Market.

Last week, I found that Super Target sells them for $1.99/lb! Target does not have a huge quantity of these apples, and I only found a few that I felt were still worth buying, but given the amount of apples I buy each week, a $0.50/lb savings is huge!

I use the apples to make applesauce (which we eat as is, and also in recipes) and baked apples. I have also started juicing apples since no commercial apple juices are “legal” on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

Have you heard?
Roy’s Natural Market is closing in early August. The store is located at Preston/Royal in Dallas. From now until July 16, visit the store between 2-4PM to wish Roy a happy retirement, get discounts and register to win prizes.

Now on to the produce comparison document for the week of July 14…

Here’s what I am thinking about buying this week:

Kroger

– Welch’s 100% Grape Juice 64 oz – $1.49 ea (use $1.00/1 printable coupon and must buy 10 participating items in mega sale – I may buy batteries). I printed the coupon last week, so I’m not sure if it is still available.
– Hass Avocados (small) – $0.50 ea

Newflower Farmers Market

– Apricots (US Grown) – $0.88/lb
– Blueberries (US Grown) – $0.88/pint

– Celery (Organic) – $0.99 ea
– Chard & Kale (Organic) – $1.50/bunch
– Cashews, unsalted or raw – $4.99/lb
– Yellow Cheddar – $2.99/lb

Sprouts

– Seedless Watermelon – $1.49 ea (if cheaper than Newflower Farmers Market)
– Almonds, unsalted/raw – $4.99/lb
