Watermelons usually priced $5.99 each are discounted to $3.99 in this one-day sale on August 29, 2012.

I’ve been downing watermelons like crazy to beat the heat and keep hydrated, and Mr Cheap is in a frenzy whipping up his version of a watermelon agua fresca. His recipe: Throw chunks of watermelon – without rind – into blender. Hit Blend. Don’t take your finger off the button until it’s well and truly blitzed. (Hold lid firmly on blender so it doesn’t splatter and turn your kitchen into Sandia Sunrise – not always successful in our case.)  Serve over ice. Sometimes I talk him into the added refinement of a sprig of mint.

So the sight of a one-day Whole Foods Market sale on watermelons made my mouth water. Pick up watermelons at $3.99 each on Wednesday August 29. This is a $2 discount from the usual price of $5.99, while supplies last. The sale is great timing for the Labor Day weekend if you choose ones that are not too ripe already.

The Whole Foods watermelon sale is ONLY on Wednesday August 29, 2012. I’d usually give you a sale web link but I got this info in an email from Whole Foods, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. You don’t need any coupons, just turn up at the participating Whole Food Market stores in Albuquerque:

I’m in the mood for a watermelon and feta cheese salad (nice mix of salty and sweet) and I’ve also been thinking about grilling some watermelon. I’ve never tried it but I’ve seen recipes where you just chuck watermelon slices on the barbecue for a couple of minutes, either raw or coated with a little honey glazing, and it sounds so good! I think some springs of thyme would add to the flavor too. Maybe I’ll try it this weekend. Do you have a fave watermelon recipe to share?
