Fresh Fruit At Low Prices

Rainier cherries, blueberries and mangoes

I usually only buy a fruit when it is at it's lowest price. This happens coincidentally when it's in season. Bananas are the exception for me since they are usually very reasonable. (Keep an eye out for marked down brown bananas which are great for banana bread.) This week Publix had some produce at my "buy" prices.

The blueberries were on sale for $1.50 a pint. We like adding them to our cereal, yogurt and smoothies. They are also great in muffins and pancakes. At this price we buy extra to freeze and use later.

Mangoes were on sale for 89cents each. I buy them when they are $1 or less. We eat them cut up in cubes for a snack. I will use them in smoothies this week too.

Rainier Cherries were buy 1 get 1 free making them $2.99 for a 1 pound container. These are a new fruit to us.

Today is the last day to get these prices at our store on Amelia Island. If they are sold out be sure to stop by the customer service desk and request a raincheck. Rainchecks let you get the item for the sale price at a later time. Each grocery store has different policies on how long rainchecks are good so check with your store.

Remember that you can get these deals at Walmart too (if a Publix is near by) since they price match.

There are some produce that I don't know the best price to buy them at yet. I plan to start tracking those prices and adding them to my price sheet.
