First up is Superstition Ranch Market. I know this isn't a secret, but thought I would post it in case any people haven't heard or been to the ranch market.
This place has gobs and gobs of fresh produce for a steal! As a disclaimer, I need to state that typically the produce from here has a slightly shorter shelf-life, and you sometimes have to dig for something good, but not always. And the prices usually counteract any inconvenience of digging through for a few seconds longer, for me at least!
I typically do my grocery shopping at WinCo (a little at Costco) every few weeks. In between these trips, I will pick up the produce I need at the Superstition Ranch Market every week, or week and a half.
Here is a glimpse into one of my shopping trips...
As you can see, the prices can't be beat. I mean, 8 red bell peppers for $1?! Usually one of those beauties can cost $1! Stuffed bell peppers for dinner, anyone?
Depending on the day and time of day you come, this place can be packed. I like to try to go during times that aren't "peak" times (i.e., not on a Saturday, not right before the dinner hour, etc.). There is a lot of produce packed into this small store, so we wear the Moby for easier navigation.
Not many other places can you score grapes for this deal!
They even have a huge assortment of specialty cheeses, fresh breads and cinnamon rolls, and dried goods as well (although I never buy the dried goods here, the price point on these is fairly high).
I got all this produce, for a whopping $9.02. What a deal! We will have yummy meals and snacks this week!
2 cantaloupes, 1 watermelon, 4 bananas, 2 cases of strawberries, grapes, green onions, 3 regular yellow onions, 3 zucchini, 5 avocados, 8-9 Roma tomatoes, 2 Produce Partners mixes (1 for salsa, 1 for guacamole).
