Sure strawberries are yummy – but they are sweeter at $1.00 a pound (in June) than they are at $4.00 a pound in November!
Here is a quick list of what should be rock bottom prices by middle of May – it’s great to stock up if you can/freeze or simply enjoy as a fresh treat!
Keep in mind that simple rule of $1.00 or less for a pound of produce – make sure to weigh items in bags and get the heavier bags! If the sale price is per item (like lettuce – $.69 each) – weigh a few and get the heaviest one.
***Remember, keep an eye on the deals for FROZEN produce too! It’s healthier than canned and can be VERY cost effective.
- Avocados (ya’d think they were a veggie!)
- Rhubarb – some call it a veggie…but It’s a pie/jam fruit!
- Berries: Strawberries, Raspberries and Blackberries. They freeze well – think jam!
- Spring Onions
- Beets – a great time to can pickled beets!
- Garlic scapes/shoots
Always a good buy
