Tips to save money on produce
Here are some tips to help you save money on fresh fruits and veggies:
- Meal plan around flyer specials. Check out our Fresh20 campaign to see how many fruits and veggies you can get for $20.
- Include fruits and veggies that are a good buy all-year-round. These include: apples, oranges, bananas, carrots, cabbage, onions, and potatoes.
- Look for in-season produce. Seasonal produce is usually fresher and less expensive. Look for asparagus in the spring, tomatoes in the summer, squash in the fall, and apples in the winter. Check out our produce seasonality guide for more information.
- Prep your own fruits and veggies. You can save money by cutting and washing your own fruits and veggies. They are cheaper than pre-washed and pre-cut produce. Cut your own celery, carrots, melons, and pineapple, and store them in clear containers so they are visible in your fridge.
- Store your produce properly. Whether it’s on the counter, in the fridge, or in the pantry, fruits and veggies stay fresh longer when stored correctly. Wasted produce is wasted money. Check out our produce storage guide and shelf life guide for more information.
