A good place for produce
Posted on 10 / 08 / 2013
I went shopping and had lunch here yesterday. This store has been around for a long time and is a valuable part of the community. They have weekly specials on produce that are tough to beat. Sprouts brand tofu is only 99 cents for a large package. The rest of their prices are on par with a specialty foods item store--expensive.
I tend to go there for their produce, and pick up a few other items that catch my eye. My mom likes to take their ads to Walmart and price match. (feels a little like cheating to me, but I try not to judge :) )
They have a deli area with homemade sandwiches available. There is one veggie option on the menu, but it's a pretty good one. The girl stacked on avocado, romaine, red onions, sprouts, red bell pepper, tomato, and cucumbers for me on a multigrain bread. A whole sandwich is only 2.99, and will fill you up.
I asked if they happened to have veganaise instead of mayonnaise, and she said no. Stuck with oil & vinegar and mustard. Stocking some would earn them bonus points with vegans. Also, I wouldn't have minded a pickle :)
Oh, and one final complaint--they don't have fountain drinks, so no ice water! For those of us not wanting a soda from the cooler, or warm tap water, you could have a water jug available.
Tip: Go on Wednesdays when their two weekly ads overlap, and there are double the deals.
