Comments Off on Avocado Sale May 1 (Cheap Salmon too)

Making guacamole for the Cinco de Mayo weekend? Here’s a one-day sale to save on avocados…

I could easily eat an avocado a day (they’re supposed to be healthy fat, right?) and a bowl of guacamole doesn’t last long in this house, between me and Mr Cheap battling it out with our tortilla chips. And did you know that if you put an avocado stone in water for a few days then plant it, it makes quite a pretty houseplant?

Anyhoo… as an avocado advocate, I was pleased to hear about this one-day Whole Foods Market sale on Wednesday May 1, 2013.

Avocados are on sale at 10 for $10, or $1 each, saving up to 67 cents on each avocado. It’s good timing for the Cinco de Mayo weekend if you choose avocados that are not too ripe already, although maybe they’re selling them off because they are ripe – so you’ll take your chances there. Oh dear, you’ll just have to eat them immediately 😉

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. The avocado sale is only on Wednesday May 1, 2013, while supplies last.

If you’re firing up the grill, I also notice in the Whole Foods sales flyer that Columbia River Whole Sockeye Salmon is on sale at $7.99 per pound (saving $4 a pound) from May 1 – 14.

You don’t need any coupons, just turn up at the participating Whole Food Market stores in Albuquerque:

  • Whole Foods Market Indian Plaza store at 2103 Carlisle Blvd. NE
  • Whole Foods Market Academy store at 5815 Wyoming Blvd NE
  • The sale is also on at the two Santa Fe Whole Foods stores if you’re heading thataway, at 753 Cerrillos Road, and 1090 S. Saint Francis Drive.

Comments Off on Beer Sale: October 31

Just in time for Halloween…. Adults can have their own treats at 20% off.

Whole Foods Market has a one-day sale on beer and fruit and veggie trays on Wednesday October 31 only.  All beers are discounted by 20%, and small size fruit and vegetable trays are discounted by $3 to $9.99 each. I have to say that although fruit and veg trays are all very healthy and such, I was rather more excited about the beer sale. I’m going to stock up for Mr Cheap so we’ll save a little on his regular “guys nights”  when he and friends get together to play guitar. Oh and drink beer in between. Or maybe they get together to drink beer and they play guitar in between. Who knows?

The Whole Foods sale is ONLY on Wednesday October 31, 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.

Oh, and a heads-up if you’re shopping for salmon this week. You might want to wait till Friday November 2, when “Responsibly Farmed” Atlantic salmon will be on sale for $8.99 per pound at Whole Foods Market stores.

For either sale, you don’t need any coupons, just turn up at the participating Whole Food Market stores in Albuquerque:

Watermelon Sale: August 29

Comments Off on Watermelon Sale: August 29

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?

Buck-A-Burger Sale: May 18

Comments Off on Buck-A-Burger Sale: May 18

Got the grill out? Here’s a one-day sale for meat-lovers!

The Whole Foods Market Buck-A-Burger sale on Friday May 18, 2012, is the place to stock up on ready-to-cook beef burgers for $1 each. It could be worth bearing in mind if you’re planning a Memorial Day weekend cook-out. The burgers have no antibiotics, no added hormone, and no artificial flavors, preservatives, or colors.

The types and sizes of burger available may vary, and there is a quantity limit per customer too – we think it’s a limit of 20 beef patties per person for Albuquerque Whole Foods stores but that also may vary.  Best thing is to get down there and check ’em out if you’re interested, and the $1 per burger offer is good while supplies last, only on May 18.

You don’t need any coupons, just turn up at the participating Whole Food Market stores in Albuquerque:

  • Whole Foods Market Indian Plaza store at 2103 Carlisle Blvd. NE
  • Whole Foods Market Academy store at 5815 Wyoming Blvd NE
  • The sale is also on at the two Santa Fe Whole Foods stores if you’re heading thataway, at 753 Cerrillos Road, and 1090 S. Saint Francis Drive.

If you’re looking for tips on summer grilling, the Whole Foods Guide to Grilling might come in handy, including techniques for grilling meat, seafood, vegetables, and fruit.

Oh dear, you’ll just have to eat them immediately 😉  

Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is also on sale at $9.99 per pound (saving $5 a pound). I’m not sure what you’ll do with that;  my favorite way to cook salmon is to smother it with pesto and bake it in foil, but I guess it’s grilling season!
